Movie goers were engrossed this weekend by the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, as Zero Dark Thirty topped the box office on Friday and Saturday.

The controversial drama - up for five Oscar nominations - from Kathryn Bigelow led all competitors with a $24.5 million haul, even as many argue over the film's authenticity and focus on torture.

Or perhaps because they argue over its authenticity and focus on torture.

  1. Zero Dark Thirty - $24.5 million
  2. A Haunted House - $18.8 million
  3. Gangster Squad - $17 million

  5. Les Miserables - $10 million
