It’s Zombie Love at the Box Office!

warm bodiesSuper Bowl, Schmuper Bowl. There was more than just football going on this weekend as zombie love ruled the box office. The new horror/comedy/romance Warm Bodies easily landed in the top spot in its first week with a good $19.5 million far ahead of the competition. It trounced the other new film, Sylvester Stallone’s Bullet to the Head, which tanked big time with only $ 4.5 million. That’s less than Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham’s recent bombs made in their first weekend. Looks like the musclemen of yesteryear haven’t regained their box office pull despite their combined appearances in The Expendables films… For more on all the numbers head to Box Office Mojo and take a look at the new top ten below.
