Well, it's likely that people in the Northwest and East Coast had other things on their minds this weekend, than going to see movies... like shoveling out.

Industry insiders are getting worried about the tepid box office results duing the past few weeks. Nothing new that has come out lately seems to be of the public's interest.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, which wasn't screened to the media until at the very last minute, on Thursday night, in some out of the way places (usually a sure mark of quality), was No. 1 this weekend, with $19 million.

The Gulliermo del Toro produced ghost story/horror film Mama did better than expected, while former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to the big screen was underwhelming, to say the least.

As expected, Zero Dark Thirty was the number one film this weekend. But what no one excepted was the surprisingly strong showing of Marlon Wayans' comedy A Hanuted House.

Since Christmas it’s been a three way battle between Les Miserables, Django Unchained and The Hobbit, with Les Miz coming out in front at first. Then The Hobbit raced up to the front position, while Django and Les Miz were battling out, tooth and nail, neck and neck, for second place.

There were a lot of box office disappointments this weekend. Both Jack Reacher and This is 40 surprisingly under-performed, and The Guilt Trip just bombed (Maybe because it looked really annoying and predictable).

Of course The Hobbit was going to be the big winner this weekend. The only question was, by how much. Well this much...
