Hansel and Gretel did more than take out witches at the box office this weekend; the updated, violent take on a classic fairy tale also took out the competition.

Overcoming mixed reviews (and a weak field), this Jeremy Renner-led drama took in $19 million Friday and Saturday, easily topping second-place Mama for the top spot.

Movie 43, meanwhile, proved that it takes more than a handful of big names to earn a big draw. Sometimes, it takes a good script and jokes that are not horrid.

Here is a look at the top five box office grossers:

Divergent has possibly landed an Academy Award winner.

According to the Summit Entertainment Twitter account, Kate Winslet will come on board the highly anticipated film in an unannounced role.

“It’s official! Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet has signed on for the highly anticipated film adaptation of #Divergent!,” read a Tweet that has since been deleted.

Divergent is set in a futuristic dystopia and based on a novel by the same name.

It follows Shailene Woodley's character, who hopes to break free from her homogeneous society that divides people based on human traits. She ends up leaving her faction, joining a rival group and falling for a young man named Four.

Casting for Four is underway.

The force will soon be with J.J. Abrams.

Despite claiming in November that he would not get behind the camera for Star Wars Episode VII, the beloved director has reportedly had a change of heart.

The Wrap now confirms that Abrams is on board.

The wildly anticipated film won't come out until 2015, with nothing known regarding the plot or the cast at the moment.

But Abrams was hailed for his reboot of Star Trek two years ago and admitted late last year that the special effect in Star Wars "blew [his] mind" upon initial viewing. He's a big fan.

Is he the right man for the all-important job?

In the never-ending online Fifty Shades of Grey movie casting game, Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder, and Channing Tatum tend to dominate the guys.

Likewise, big names like Emma Watson, Nina Dobrev, Krysten Ritter and Lucy Hale are often whispered about as likely potentials for the female lead.

A new name has emerged recently, however, and she's generating a lot of buzz in spite (or because) of the fact that she's less famous: Analeigh Tipton.

The America’s Next Top Model alum and Crazy Stupid Love star can be seen in the upcoming Warm Bodies, and said she'd be open to the sexy role.

Lindsay Lohan can't catch a break these days.

Last week, her new movie The Canyons was rejected by the Sundance Film Festival, and now South By Southwest (SXSW) has reportedly followed suit.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "quality issues" was the hilarious reason cited, with one source labeling the Bret Easton Ellis film "a monstrosity."

Hottest Mess

Good or bad, the recent New York Times feature entitled "Here Is What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie" did little to help the film.

The paper describes the "chaos" surrounding the often-drunk Lindsay Lohan, from $46,000 hotel bills to erratic behavior and days-long disappearances.

The big screen is about to get a lot less handsome.

Leonardo DiCaprio told Germany's Bild newspaper this week that he's "a bit drained and is "going to take a long, long break" from movies.

It's understandable: the heartthrob certainly has been a busy man.

Over the last two years, DiCaprio has filmed Django Unchained (check out his Django Unchained quotes now!), The Great Gatsby and The Wolf of Wall Street, the latter two of which hit theaters this year.

While debate rages on regarding various Django Unchained quotes from this Oscar-nominated movie, the debate is now over regarding Django Unchained action figures.

These items have been discontinued.

Action Figures

Many advocacy ordinations - such as Project Islamic Hope and Al Sharpton's National Action Network - had spoken out against the figures because they didn't believe it was appropriate for the topic of slavery to be marketed to children.

In advance of Lovelace's Sundance Film Festival premiere, a new photo of Amanda Seyfried as legendary porn star Linda Lovelace has been released:

Amanda Seyfried as Lovelace

The actress, as you can see, is in full '70s character, just about to get to down to business with fellow porn star Harry Reems, played by Adam Brody.

Damn you Adam Brody.

That's Hank Azaria in the director's chair, with Chris Noth and Bobby Canavale on either side, FYI, ready to monitor whatever adult film magic might ensue.

Seyfried replaced Lindsay Lohan, who had to pull out (a topic she knows a lot about - WHAT) due to scheduling constraints, i.e. being on probation and in court every other day.

Think she can hack it as the iconic porn queen?

Katie Holmes was named one of GQ's sexiest women of the 21st century, due in large part to her somewhat random topless scene in the 2000 film The Gift.

The magazine pays homage to the film and Holmes' half-nude role, awarding her the honor of Hottest Scene: Can't Believe This Happened category.

"She has the same Joey Potter tics: head tilts, shoulder shrugs up, lips chew down into a lopsided grin," writer Mark Lotto says, referencing Dawson's Creek.

"But then she [reveals] her un-Joey-Potter-like breasts - exquisitely breast-like breasts, the breasts you would think of if someone said the word 'breasts.'"

Lotto jokes that Tom Cruise watches it when he feels nostalgic.

"And every time topless Katie taunts [Greg Kinnear] with a 'F-ck you,' Tom feels as if she's talking to him, and he thinks some terribly Greg Kinnearish things."

We can't post the clip here for obvious reasons, but we did post a couple of amazing screen grabs from it. Follow the link for the NSFW Katie Holmes photos!
