Of course “Warm Bodies” was No. 1 for the weekend, earning more than double last week’s top movie, “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters,” which benefitted from 3-D in some theaters.
As always, final numbers will be released on Monday. Here is how the weekend box office figures are shaping up:
1. “Warm Bodies” — $20,025,000.
2. “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” — $9,210,000, bringing its North American total to $34,463,000.
3. “Silver Linings Playbook” — $8,113,000, for $80,377,558 so far.
4. “Mama” — $6,730,020, for $58,262,120 to date. 
5. “Zero Dark Thirty” — $5,300,000, for $77,798,000 since its limited December release. 
6. “Bullet to the Head” — $4,500,000. 
7. “Parker” — $3,215,000, for a lackluster $12,439,882 over two weekends. 
8. “Django Unchained” — $3,039,000, or $150,979,189 since release. 
9. “Les Miserables” — $2,439,360, nudging its domestic total to $141,522,605. 
10. “Lincoln” — $2,412,000, for $170,787,000 since arriving in theaters in November. 
11. “Argo” — $2,100,000, or $120,443,000 in 17 weeks. 
The awards train is moving quickly through Los Angeles. The Art Directors Guild honored “Anna Karenina” (period film), “Life of Pi” (fantasy film) and “Skyfall” (contemporary film) at a Saturday ceremony.
