Nobody seemed sure quite how well Warm Bodies would do at the US box office, but it turns out audiences were up for some zombie fun over the Superbowl weekend, as the Nicholas Hoult starring movie took $20 million in its first weekend to top the chart. It’s considered a pretty good opening for a relatively cheap movie that could easily have been ignored.
The only other new movie in the top 10 was Bullet To The Head, which placed sixith with $4.5 million. It’s not been a good few weeks for 80s action stars, as Arnie’s comeback, The Last Stand, failed to hit is big, and now Sylvester Stallone is having the same trouble with his new movie. It’s been noted that it’s the star’s worst opening since 1981’s Nighthawks, and even that movie had a higher attendance.
Take a look below for the US box office top 10 for the weekend of February 1st-3rd.
