As far as the weekend box office numbers are concerned, we guess it was a case of the lesser of two evils!
WELL…maybe not evil! But DEFINITELY the lesser of two SUPREMELY shiteous movies!
While Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters was reportedly described as the "the longest 90 minutes you [will] ever spend in a theater," it still managed to make the most money across the United States by garnering the majority of ticket sales from Friday-Sunday and ultimately made around $19 million!
That's right, more folks sat through THAT then Silver Linings Playbook, Zero Dark Thirty AND Django Unchained!
Thankfully, however, the same CANNOT be said for Movie 43 and the hole in hell out of which it crawled, because even with its plethora of A-list talent that we won't further embarrass by naming here, a majority of movie-goers were smart enough to stay FAR away…resulting in a cumulative $5 million and movie reviews that refer to it as LITERALLY the worst movie ever!
But hey! You can find out where Jennifer Lopez's latest Parker fits in among all of this…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, $19 million
Mama, $12.9 million
Silver Linings Playbook, $10million
Zero Dark Thirty, $9.8 million
Parker, $7 million
Django Unchained, $5.005 million
Movie 43, $5 million
Gangster Squad, $4.2 million
Broken City, $4 million
Les Misérables, $3.9 million
