The Expendables 2
Within each of the last three weeks, an action movie starring an action star from “The Expendables” opened to weak results. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s comeback film “The Last Stand” opened to a weak $6.3M on the weekend of January 18-20. After three weeks, it grossed just $11.7M, and looks like it’ll end its run at $12M.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
As badly as this last week’s new releases were received, they made a fairly good showing of themselves this weekend.

Box Office: 'Hansel and Gretel' No. 1 With So-So $19 Mil; 'Movie 43' Bombs With $5 Mil – Crime-thriller "Parker" -- pairing Jason Statham with Jennifer Lopez -- is likewise D.O.A. as a glut of R-rated films make life tough at the domestic box office...Paramount and MGM's action-comedy Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters topped the weekend chart with a $19 million opening but underperformed despite star Jeremy Renner and the upcharge for a 3D ticket.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
It’s looking to be a pretty dismal for new releases this weekend: three different new films, and not a one of them well-received. One of these ill-conceived releases is Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, another film putting a new spin on an old tale. Here, fairy-tale children Hansel and Gretel survive their famous encounter with a witch and grow up to face several more monstrosities, and contend with the horrors of their past.

Critics Consensus: Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters Not Screened -- Guess the Tomatometer! – This week at the movies, we've got killer siblings (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton), an avenging crook (Parker, starring Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez), and a smorgasbord of comedy vignettes (Movie 43, starring Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman). What do the critics have to say? 9 years 17 weeks ago via theothersenhman

The audience will know exactly what they’ll get from a Jason Statham movie – a lot of broken bones and seduction.   More »
