The debut of "Beautiful Creatures" a supernatural fantasy flick featuring British Oscar-winner Emma Thompson, came in fifth with $7.46 million in ticket sales, while director Steven Soderbergh's thriller "Side Effects," starring Jude Law and Rooney Mara, came in sixth with $6.3 million.

Oscar-nominated romantic comedy "Silver Linings Playbook," starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, was seventh with $6 million in movies seats sold, followed by "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunt," a horror movie twist on the classic fairy tale, which grossed an estimated $3.47 million.
