Box office sales were all about Jessica Chastain this weekend. The 35-year-old actress claimed the two top spots with her movies ‘Mama’ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty.’

‘Mama,’ a supernatural horror film, took in $28.1 million in ticket sales. ‘Zero Dark Thirty,’ a thriller that tells the story of the hunt for Osama bin Laden, made $17.6 million. ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ was nominated for four Golden Globe Awards and took home one win: Best Actress–Motion Picture Drama for Chastain. The film is also nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture and another Best Actress nod for Chastain.

To take the top spots this weekend, ‘Mama’ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ beat out Mark Wahlberg’s ‘Broken City,’ Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ‘The Last Stand,’ and Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ which made a dramatic jump to the number three spot with $11.4 million.

    Mama was freaking scary. She was great it it, as well as The Help and The Tree of Life. Haven't seen Zero Dark Thirty yet, but she's supposed to be great as well. Mama Jessica Chastain

    I've never heard of her until now, sheis nothing to many as you can see, actually Hollywood is evil corrupt and the birth place of Violent Movies, violent video's so who really wants to support Hollywood, Obama I guess.

    I find it funny that this post actually was edited. Does that mean that the original draft of this was less coherent and even more packed with stupid sauce?

    Did people go to see the Transformers movies and Indiana Jones 4 because Shia labitch was in them? NO, people don't care about some actor/actress that the studio is trying shove down our throats. Those movies would be where they are with or without Jessica Chastain, Shia Labitch, or any other D list newbie actor/actress.

    Hollywood is like others who force higher taxes on some and claim they will protect others. I say you lose your freedom when the king can force tax raises on Middle America and then tell them he hasn't, Liar, Hoax. Hollywood has done the same thing, push political issues on Americans, force on us there views! Well I'm not impressed with Hollywood's Violent track record with its mind altering Movies and Videos/Music if that's what you want to call it. Hollywood is in the business of propaganda, their liberal support of the killing of the born and unborn, directly and indirectly, take a moment to slow down and focus on all the facts and figures, stop acting on what others tell you is the truth.

    And the crazy just keeps on coming.

    I'm going to call Nurse Ratched to have the staff up your dose; don't worry.

    Um, you do realize this "D" lister just won the GG for Best Actress, was a lead or major supporting player in two of last year's most-celebrated films, and did had three films released in the last five months?

    As to your assertion that "movies would be where they are with or without" the people they had cast... would you think that a film like THE GODFATHER would have been the same if they had cast a bunch of unknowns? Damn that film for shoving Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, James Caan and Diane Keaton down my throat!

    One thing I like in an actor is their ability to make me forget what I've seen them in before...
