Warm Bodies Zombie-Walks to #1 in Meager Super Bowl Weekend Box Office

by at . Comments

There's a reason last weekend was called Super Bowl weekend and not Go See a Movie weekend, and that's because everyone watched the Super Bowl and not a lot of people went to see a movie.

Warm Bodies landed in first place during the light three days, earning $19.5 million. Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer star in the zombie romantic comedy, based on the book by Isaac Marion.
