Box Office Guru Wrapup: Audiences Propel Zero Dark Thirty to #1
Three films entered wide release shoving holiday holdovers to the side while major Oscar nominees cashed in on the added attention. Leading the way was the Osama bin Laden manhunt pic Zero Dark Thirty which captured the number one spot in its first weekend of wide release following a strong run in limited play. The spoof comedy A Haunted House pulled off an upset by opening in second place ahead of the all-star crime drama Gangster Squad which was in a thousand more theaters. Overall, the marketplace was vibrant inching ahead of the same frame from the last two years which was impressive since those had the added boost of being the MLK holiday weekend. The top four films are all R-rated and five of the top seven movies have running times of two-and-a-half to three hours.

Included in the mix are stories involving Tina Fey, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Brad Pitt, and directors Wes Anderson, Christopher Nolan, and Robert Rodriguez.

Jessica Chastain plays Maya, the driving force behind the assassination of Osama Bin Laden in 2011, and Jason Clarke plays Dan Stanton, an interrogator for the CIA. Here, Grae Drake does some interrogating of her own, although it ends much differently for them than it did for Osama.
