On the heels of Thursday morning’s Oscar nominations, Zero Dark Thirty is poised to shoot higher than newcomers Gangster Squad and A Haunted House and rise straight to the top of the box office.

Zero Dark Thirty, the controversial film about the assassination of Osama Bin Laden, has earned $5.2 million after three weeks of limited release, during which it has played in no more than 60 theaters. Sony is now expanding the $40 million film into 2,937 theaters following the five Oscar nominations — though, shockingly, not a directing nom for Kathryn Bigelow — it garnered today.

Zero Dark Thirty is appealing to audiences »
