Box Office: “Mama” does $33 over the long holiday weekend — “Silver Linings” blows up

Finally going into WIDE release on a lot of screen, “Silver Linings Playbook” cracked the top three, with a $10 million weekend.

“Mama,” a better-than-average horror tale with Jessica Chastain and the imprint of producer Guillermo del Toro, did a dazzling $33 million.

“”Broken City” barely cleared $8 million. “Gangster Squad” lost half its opening weekend audience and is doomed to die a flop’s death.

“The Last Stand” barely cleared $6 million, which suggests reports of Arnold Schwarzenegger having a fanbase that still goes to the movies was GROSSLY exaggerated.
