Washington - Zero Dark Thirty, Hollywood's re-telling of the decade-long manhunt for Osama bin Laden, captured the No 1 spot on movie box office charts over the weekend with $24m in US and Canadian ticket sales.

The movie, starring Jessica Chastain as a dogged CIA agent, edged out horror movie spoof A Haunted House, which finished with $18.8m as well as Gangster Squad, a period crime drama that finished in third place with $16.7m from Friday through Sunday.

The weekend marked a strong start for Hollywood in 2013 after 2012's record-setting box office numbers.
