Box Office Report: Good For Teenage Zombies, Bad For Stallone


“Sylvester Stallone’s new action pic Bullet to the Head turned in a grim $4.5 million.”[Source]

Looks like the only jocked-up meatheads America was interested in watching this weekend were the ones tossing the pigskin. Hence, the pitiful debut for Sylvester Stallone’s latest action bomb, Bullet to the Head, which took in $4.5 million for a sixth place opening. Let’s hope that this puts the final nail in the geriatric action hero coffin. Or that it at least encourages him to find a better plastic surgeon.

Those who did wander into the local AMC did so mostly to watch teenage zombies and Oscar nominees, as evidenced in the better-than-expected $20 million debut for Nicholas Hoult’s Warm Bodies. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters fell to second with $9.2 million, followed by Silver Linings Playbook, Mama, and Zero Dark Thirty. This weekend’s top ten were as follows:

1. Warm Bodies – $20 million
2. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters – $9.2 million
3. Silver Linings Playbook – $8.1 million
4. Mama – $6.7 million
5. Zero Dark Thirty – $5.3 million
6. Bullet to the Head – $4.5 million
7. Parker – $3.2 million
8. Django Unchained – $3 million
9. Les Miserables – $2.44 million
10. Lincoln – $2.41 million

    Are they ever going to stop with the zombies? Anyway, Nicholas is sexy so I might watch it for him.

  • Saw it over the weekend, I would call the movie below average, with just enough of a zombie flick. It could have been so much better very easily. They were trying to cater to the 14-16 year old girl crowd and were very successful.

    Teenage zombies are no more brain dead than regular teenagers, or anybody else who’d buy a ticket to this flick.
