Zero Dark Thirty, the controversial account of the CIA’s operation to hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden, dominated the weekend box office with $24 million in ticket sales. Zero Dark Thirty box office sales received an extra boost over the weekend after the film collected five 2013 Oscar nominations on Thursday.
Despite negative attention from critics over the portrayel of Zero Dark Thirty torture scenes, the film was a hit with movie-goers at the weekend box office. There is just nothing more American than a movie about spies, big guns, torture and mass murdering bad guys, right? America, f**k yeah!
