None of the weekend's new releases got anything even remotely close to good reviews-- the closest is Parker, with a 35% Rotten Tomatoes score-- but the people need something to see, and it seems they've chosen Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Well, sort of. The R-rated revisionist fairy tale brought in $5.9 million on Friday, on track for a $17 million weekend and first place-- though not nearly the kind of numbers you might expect for something action-packed and in 3D.

That one actually only cost $6 million, »
