NEW YORK -- Arnold Schwarzenegger's post-governorship comeback fizzled at the box office, as his "The Last Stand" earned just $7.2 million over the three-day holiday weekend.

Instead, the Jessica Chastain horror film "Mama" surpassed expectations with a chart-topping $32.1 million opening from Friday through Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

In its second week of wide release, the Osama bin Laden hunt thriller "Zero Dark Thirty" slid to the second spot with $18.6 million, meaning Chastain-led films held the top two spots.
