“Gravity” stays No. 1 in the US Box Office

Oct 13th, 2013

THR is reporting that “Gravity” stayed No. 1 in the US box office and it broke more records!

Adults fueled another strong weekend at the North American box office as Warner Bros.’ Gravity stayed at No. 1 with a record $44.3 million and Sony’s Captain Phillips opened to a solid $26 million.

From director Alfonso Cuaron, Gravity raced past $100 million domestically to end the weekend with total earnings of $123.4 million. Worldwide, the space epic — starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney — has earned well north of $150 million.

Gravity slipped only 21 percent in its second weekend domestically — the lowest decline in history for a film that opened to more than $55 million (The Incredibles was the previous record holder at 29 percent). This doesn’t count holiday weekends. It’s also the lowest decline of the year to date for a movie playing in more than 2,000 theaters.

“This indicates the ability to open a tentpole in October,” said Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman, who also noted that the film is now playing to younger moviegoers, as well as to consumers who rarely take a trip to the multiplex.

Gravity continues to be a big draw in 3D (82 percent), with Imax theaters alone taking in a record $9 million over the weekend for total sales of $26.5 million. It’s the largest second weekend gross in Imax history.
