That puts it at number 1 for the last weekend in January, probably the worst weekend for moviegoing that we’ll see this year.
“Mama” managed to cling to #2 and close in on $50 million. A better movie that’s doing better at the box office? Go figure.
“Silver Linings Playbook” is doing well in wide release. Followed by “Zero Dark Thirty.”
In fifth place — the poorly pitched “Parker,” which deserved better. It did “Last Stand” numbers, a bit over $7 million.
“Movie 43” didn’t clear $4 million. Huge cast, weak movie, little hype.
As I said, a bad weekend for new openings.
