According to boxoffivemojo.com on Feb. 3, the new zombie romantic comedy, "Warm Bodies," conquered the box office weekend. While facing competition from Oscar winners like Al Pacino and action film icons like Sylvester Stallone, the zombie movie came out triumphant.
"Warm Bodies" ranked seventh all-time when it came to Super Bowl weekend movies, making an impressive $20.03 million. With only John Malkovich as the bankable star, the movie relied on a quirky premise and young, unknown stars to carry the movie over the threshold.
The other two opening weekend movies were Sylvester Stallone's "Bullet to the Head," based on a popular French graphic novel, and "Stand Up Guys," starring three Oscar winners in Al Pacino, Alan Arkin and Christopher Walken. Both movies seemed targeted for a specific audience, neither pulled in the expected audiences.
"Bullet to the Head" only made $4.5 million, following Arnold Schwarzenegger's "The Last Stand" and Jason Statham's "Parker" as major box office disappointments. With these three movies tanking, it seems like the big action movie has finally died off.
"Stand Up Guys" was supposed to have a 2012 release but was pushed back to this weekend. The reviews have been bad and the film was released to a small amount of theaters, only opening in 659 locations nationwide. It ended up ranked 17th for the weekend with $1.5 million.
