warm bodies box office

Sorry, Jeremy Renner!

The box office reign of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters was short-lived!

But hey! What can you expect when facing up against a much-more-favorably-reviewed Twilight with zombies?!

That's right, Warm Bodies, which stars Jennifer Lawrence's ex Nicholas Hoult and a blonde, emotive Kristen Stewart Teresa Palmer as zombie apocalypse-crossed, brain-eating lovers, opened this weekend with an impressive $20 million - which is $10 million more than ANY other movie made between Friday and Sunday!

Sadly, this included Sylvester Stallone's latest non-Expendables effort, Bullet to the Head, which only raked in about $6.5 million and found itself barely afloat among Best Picture nominees and Jessica Chastain's Mama!

But want to know what's NOT so sad?

Movie 43 lost two-thirds of the already-abysmal ticket sales it managed to snag last weekend, and has fallen out of the top ten…and hopefully, out of our memories FOREVER!

Can we hear a resounding GOOD RIDDANCE from everyone, please?!

LOLz!

But check out which flicks made the box office top ten this weekend…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Sylvester Stallone Abused His Half-Sister & Paid Her To Stay Quiet!?

Not according to Mama Stallone!

New documents reveal Sylvester Stallone's half-sister, Toni-Ann Filiti, accused him of abuse in the late '80s and the action hero paid her crap-loads of cash to keep quiet!

As horrendous as those allegations sound, Jackie Stallone swears her son would NEVER do that!

Apparently the Rocky star's half-sister shook him down so, on his lawyers' advice, he paid her $2 mil up-front and continued giving her monthly payments of $16K.

Jackie revealed:

Amour Makes Arnold Schwarzenegger And Austria Proud For Best Foreign Language Film

| Filed under: Film FlickersAwardzArnold SchwarzeneggerSylvester StalloneGolden Globes

This might have been the most confusing exchange all night at the Golden Globes!

And there were a lot of drunk crazy and excited celebs!

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone presented the award for Best Foreign Film to Amour, directed by Michael Haneke and Ah-nold's fellow Austrian.

A bunch of words were said, but no one knows exactly what.

What we DO know is that Amour beat out A Royal Affair, The Intouchables, Kon-Tiki, and Rust and Bone, which was perfect considering the Austrians met face-to-face, making their homeland proud. Way to go, Amour!

Watch Sly and Ah-nold's ridiculously awkward and HIGHlarious opening (above)!

expendables 2 lawsuit wrongful death negligence stuntmen nuo sun kun liu jet li

Can anyone really blame him?!

Stuntman Nuo Sun was standing-in for legendary actor and martial artist Jet Li during an all-too-explosive Expendables 2 action sequence last year in Bulgaria, when a terrible accident severely injured him and killed fellow stunt-worker, Kun Liu.

Nuo filed a lawsuit Thursday against Millennium Films, accusing the production company of negligence.

He alleges the fateful stunt sequence was never properly set up and seeks compensation for "severe shock and injury" and a persisting (if not permanent) "mental, physical and nervous pain and suffering."

Kun's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit over the summer against the production companies involved and also the film's stunt coordinator.

A spokesperson from Millennium offered condolences after the tragedy occurred, but the company hasn't yet commented on the plaintiffs' allegations.

Sylvester Stallone Refuses Bicep Surgery!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSylvester StalloneHealthSurgery

sylvester-stallone-bicep-surgery-refuse-tear

Sylvester Stallone is refusing to get surgery after tearing his bicep during a movie stunt, because the procedure is too dangerous and he might lose his arm.

Just kidding, he's refusing because he's stubborn and sick of having operations due to movie-related injuries — and it would ruin a tattoo he has. Uh, okay. Just endure the pain then??

While we understand it's been a long road of surgeries, including his back, neck, shoulders and leg since shooting 2010's The Expendables, we can't imagine not fixing a problem. Even for a tattoo that's meant to tribute your wife.

Here's what he says:
