'Hansel and Gretel' Slay Others at the Box Office

For the second weekend in a row, a paranormal-themed film reigned at the box office. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters took in $19 million and took the top spot - this is despite a critical drubbing that saw the film get a rotten rating on RottenTomatoes review aggregator.

Last week’s champ, Mama stayed strong at second place with $12.9 million.

We have a strong feeling that next weekend’s release of the zombie love story, Warm Bodies will make it three weeks in a row for number one paraflicks. You can also check out Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia.
