'Bullet to the Head' bombs at box office Friday, 'Warm Bodies' leads
Sylvester Stallone's action movie "Bullet to the Head" flopped at the box office Friday (Feb. 1), earning only $1.7 million on its opening day. The poor performance follows meager openings for his "Expendables" co-stars Arnold Schwarzenegger ("The Last Stand," $7.2 million opening weekend) and Jason Statham ("Parker," $7 million opening weekend).
Friday's No. 1 spot went to the zombie rom-com "Warm Bodies," which made $8.1 million, per studio estimates. That puts it on pace to make about $20 million for the weekend, a very solid number for a Super Bowl weekend.
Last weekend's leader, "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," came in second Friday with an estimated $2.9 million. "Silver Linings Playbook" was third with $2.4 million, and "Mama" was fourth with $2.3 million. "Bullet to the Head" rounds out the Top 5.
