“Lone Survivor” triumphed at the weekend box office.
Jessica Chastain easily out-muscled Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mark Wahlberg over the weekend, topping the box office with both her supernatural horror film “Mama” and the Oscar-nominated Osama bin Laden hunt thriller “Zero Dark Thirty.”
It’s both a bear and bull market for Hollywood. The bear is “Ted,” Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane’s comedy for Universal Pictures about a talking teddy bear, which opened as the No. 1 movie with $54.1 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
“Contraband” managed to steal the top slot at the weekend box office away from competitors.
It wouldn’t be the Academy Awards without at least one boxing movie among the nominees.
