Jeremy Renner’s got another number one movie to his name. Some five months after the release of The Bourne Legacy, the actor’s new film Hansel and Gretel: With Hunters topped the weekend box office with $19 million in ticket sales, according to Box Office Mojo.

The film beat out last week’s topper Mama and David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook to take top place. Jessica Chastain‘s thriller grossed another $12.9 million, bringing its two week total to $48.6 million, while Silver Linings made some $10 million. The film, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, is on pace to make more than $100 million.

Unfortunately for all the stars of the new comedy compilation, Movie 43 finished its opening weekend with a mere $5 million, placing the film at seventh place.

The comedy, directed by a slew of talent including Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks and Brett Ratner, stars a long list of Tinseltown’s best, including Kirsten Bell, Halle Berry, Uma Thurman, Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman.

Over the weekend, Celebuzz rounded up what the critics had to say about the ensemble picture — let’s just say it’s a film worth skipping.
