‘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.
