In an awesome development over the weekend, one of Women and Hollywood’s favorite actresses, Jessica Chastain dominated the box office this weekend with both her films in the top spots.

Mama, which was released on Friday, easily took the number one spot with a projected $33.2 million. With male-driven action films starring big actors like Mark Wahlberg and Arnold Schwarzenegger expected to open big, Mama’s box office numbers were a surprise.

Zero Dark Thirty, which Chastain won the Golden Globe for last week, held steady in the number 2 spot with a projected four day weekend total of $21.4 million. An actress holding both the top box office slots is rare at best, so it’s exciting to see Chastain’s work get recognition from audiences.
