'Zero Dark Thirty' One of Biggest Mid-Week Limited Debuts Ever

"Zero Dark Thirty" has been slammed by several senators for its depiction of torture, but the issue only appears to have helped it at the box office.

Director Kathryn Bigelow's dramatization of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden racked up an estimated $124,848 in five theaters in New York City and Los Angeles on Wednesday. That's an average of  $24,969, making it one of the biggest limited mid-week openings in history.
