Moviegoers showed plenty of love for the new zombie romantic comedy Warm Bodies this weekend, as the film grossed some $20 million to take top honors at the box office.

The picture, starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer, beat out last weekend’s no. 1 movie Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, while Silver Linings Playbook continues to inch closer to the $100 million mark, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Unfortunately for Sylvester Stallone, his new release Bullet to the Head did not have a very good weekend. Based on a French graphic novel about a hit man who partners up with a detective, Bullet grossed $4.5 million, just shy of finishing in the top five.

Oscar heavyweights Zero Dark Thirty, Django Unchained, Les Miserables and Lincoln each enjoyed another strong weekend, with Steven Spielberg’s film surpassing the $170 million mark.

 

Last week, Celebuzz spoke to Hoult about Warm Bodiesunique genre.

“It could have easily got ridiculous and become a parody . . . I think it’s finding that right balance, which [director Jonathan Levine] is really good at doing with all of his films," he said.

“Eventually oyu’ve just got to give it a go and hope for the best. And it was a really fun set to work on -- we had really great actors like Teresa and Rob [Corddry].”
