Trail of Money Leads 'Hansel and Gretel' to Box Office Win

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Paramount

"Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" became the fifth Jeremy Renner film in a row to hit the top spot at the box office, as according to the poorly reviewed action flick earned $19 million over its debut weekend.

That was enough to hold off returning champ "Mama," which finished in second place, as well as dead on arrival duds "Parker" and "Movie 43," which debuted in fifth and seventh place respectively.

For a full run down of the weekend's box office figures, including numbers for award season favorites "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Zero Dark Thirty," head to

'Mama's' Jessica Chastain Unleashes One-Two Box Office Punch

Mama Universal

Jessica Chastain, who topped the box office last weekend with "Zero Dark Thirty," continued her amazing hot streak, winning this weekend's box office with her new horror film "Mama."

According to, "Mama" brought in an impressive $28.1 million, while "Zero Dark Thirty" held strong in second place with $17.6 million. And, oh by the way, Chastain also won the Golden Globe last weekend for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama and picked up an Oscar nomination to boot.

With Chastain pretty much dominating everything in the world, there was little room for anyone else at the box office, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose new film "The Last Stand" bombed out in a distant tenth place. For the full details of that disaster, plus the rest of the box office chart, head to

The Little Girl From 'Mama' Reacts to Recent Events


The Bible says that a little child will lead us. Here at NextMovie, we're better with, you know, images and videos than we are with book-learnin', so we took this as best as we know how. If we must live by the example of a little (movie) child, it may as well be Megan Charpentier, who plays a feral tween in "Mama," the scarytastic flick coming out this weekend.

While little Victoria (Charpentier) must grapple with whether to accept the maternal warmth of foster mom Jessica Chastain or the company of a centuries-old murder-ghost, the titular Mama, we have all kinds of day-to-day stuff to worry about that kids just don't have to handle.

Keeping the little-child maxim in mind, we turned to feral child Victoria to get her perspective on some recent events. Read on to know how you should feel about the world as of late. Get More »

"We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope." – Martin Luther King, Jr.

You said it, Reverend. Greetings from the apocalypse! As we continue our trek across this wind-blasted winter landscape of mediocre cinema, it's important not to toss hope in a ditch like grandma's ashes. Jumpstart the VW bus we found abandoned next to the exploded gas station and let's move onward into the long MLK weekend with our head held high and noseplug firmly secured. It's how the good Doctor would have wanted it. Get More »

January Movie Math: Breaking Down the New Releases

Ryan Gosling in "Gangster Squad" Warner Bros.

Ah, 2013. Breathe in that sweet, fresh, new year air. You're walking in a winter wonderland. Everything is new. A sense of possibility! A sense of having no clue what any of these January releases are about.

It's true: We've all been so wrapped up in hustling to see November and December's awards contenders before Hollywood's sparkliest posse gathers to repeatedly congratulate its members that we totally forgot that there are new movies coming out. "'Mama'? What's that?" you may think, puzzling over the coming soon roster. "Sounds sweet."

Gentle movie enthusiast, come with us. We'll guide you through January's new releases and show you the light, movie math style. Click ahead for our simple arithmetic breakdowns of the coming attractions.

(And for the record, "Mama" is not sweet. It's 98 percent likely to scare the living bejeezus out of you and undo whatever goodwill you may harbor toward Jessica Chastain after "The Help.") Get More »

Jessica Chastain Cries For 'Mama' in New Trailer


We're not entirely sure what it means when a movie is "presented by" someone — did they find it at a garage sale? — but we do know that Jessica Chastain is awesome, so even though Guillermo del Toro is merely "presenting" the new horror film "Mama" instead of directing it, we've still got pretty high hopes.

And if the new trailer is any indication, those hopes are about to be realized even as Chastain's hopes are being dashed by a malevolent spirit. Get More »

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays mega-creeper Jaime Lannister in HBO's "Game of Thrones," has signed on to costar opposite Tom Cruise in "Oblivion."

Coster-Waldau will take time out from tormenting the Stark family to play Sykes, whom Deadline describes as "a battle-hardened, physically imposing, intelligent and extremely athletic military technology and weapons expert."

The movie, which has had a somewhat turbulent path from story to screen, is quickly racking up star power in time for its March start date. Morgan Freeman recently signed on the dotted line, and Olga Kurylenko and Andrea Riseborough were announced as costars in January. Get More »
