Mama

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.

The $15 million dollar Mama was No.1 this weekend, with an excellent $33.2 million opening, twice what it cost to produce it, while Arnie's action movie, The Last Stand, did a paltry $7.4 million.

Allen Hughes' film noirish Broken Cuity underperformed, while Marlon Wayans' A Haunted House, though it took a big dip, is well into the black, considering its very modest $2.5 million production budget.

Django Unchanged still shows signs of strength, with a total to date of over $140 million, making it, far and away, the biggest success domestically of any Quentin Tarantino movie. And adding to that are the numbers in overseas markets where the film opened this week in some 48 countries making $48 million total in its opening weekend numbers.

1)     Mama Uni. $33. million

2)    Zero Dark Thirty (Columbia Pictures) - $21.4 million ($55.9M total)

3)    Silver Linings Playbook (The Weinstein Co.) - $14.2 million ($58. 1M total)

4)    Broken City (20th Century Fox) - $10 million

5)     Gangster Squad (Warner Bros.) - $9.1 million ($32.2M total)

6)     Django Unchained (The Weinstein Co.) - $9.6 million ($140.2M total)

7)     A Haunted House (Open Road Films) - $8.3 million ($29.9M total)

8)     Les Miserables (Universal Pictures) - $7.8 million ($132.1M total)

9)     The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Warner Bros.) - $6.4 million ($287.3M total)

10)    The Last Stand (Lionsgate) $7.4million
