‘Zero Dark Thirty’ number one at the box office

‘‘Zero Dark Thirty,’’ Sony Pictures’ Osama bin Laden raid drama, nabbed first place with $24 million in its first weekend in wide release, according to studio estimates Sunday. The film, which opened in a limited run last month, earned five Oscar nominations last week, including best picture, original screenplay, and actress for Jessica Chastain as a dogged CIA operative. Open Road Films’ horror parody ‘‘A Haunted House’’ starring Marlon Wayans debuted in second place with a solid $18.8 million. The Warner Bros. mobster drama ‘‘Gangster Squad,’’ starring Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling as off-the-books police officers battling a mob boss played by Sean Penn, opened below expectations in third place with $16.7 million. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences moved up the unveiling of the Oscar nominations to Thursday, ahead of Sunday’s Golden Globes, Hollywood’s second-biggest awards ceremony organized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
