‘Mama’ Kills It At The Weekend Box Office, ‘The Last Stand’ Tanks
‘Mama’ killed it at the box office this weekend, managing to knock out Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new flick ‘The Last Stand’ – all the way to 10th place!
According to Deadline, Arnold’s action film earned a weak $6.7 million this weekend, and doesn’t look to be improving any time soon.
As for ‘Mama,’ the film opened in 1st place…earning $28.1 million between Friday to Sunday. Studio executives weren’t expecting such a big turnout for Mama –a relatively low budget film– and only had the title of “presented by Guillermo del Toro” to back it up.
“This is an incredible result for a little film. We think it was the advertising on Twilight [Breaking Dawn Part 2] and the really scary trailer targeted to girls,” a studio executive commented.
