$24 million: How much money "Zero Dark Thirty" brought in over the weekend, making it the top grossing movie of the weekend. It was the first weekend the film was in wide release (it opened in New York and Los Angeles in December). The film based on the hunt for Osama bin Laden topped "Gangster Squad," the star-packed film with Ryan Gosling and Sean Penn, which brought in only $16.7 million for third place. In second for the weekend was "A Haunted House," the low-budget horror movie starring Marlon Wayans, which took in $18.8 million.
