BOX OFFICE: HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS Takes $500,000 At Midnight Showings
Paramount's Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters has kicked off its North American run with a so-so $500,000 in midnight grosses. Hit the jump for details on that and early predictions on how it's set to perform over the weekend!
Deadline reports that Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton) opened to $500,000 on 2000 screens last night before it expands to 3,372 theatres today. This isn't really a particularly good or bad result for a midnight screening of an R-Rated movie of this type, but the studio were hoping for better. Regardless, it is currently expected to take the #1 spot at the North American box office this weekend with a predicted haul of $25 million. Not bad at all, especially as its budget was only $50 million! Do you plan on checking out the movie at some point over the next few days? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
Fifteen years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world.
