'Hansel and Gretel': 3D Witch Whackers Leading Slow Weekend Box Office

"Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" opened to $6 million on Friday and is leading what is shaping up as a soft weekend at the box office.

That puts the R-rated action fantasy from Paramount and MGM on course for a three-day total of $17 million, closer to the projections of the studios than analysts, who had it doing north of $20 million. The Friday numbers were swelled by midnight Thursday screenings and "Hansel and Gretel" is also benefiting from the premium 3D pricing at roughly 2,900 of its 3,373 locations.
