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.

THR is reporting that “Gravity” sets October Record With $55.8 Million Debut.
Once again proving the power of older moviegoers, Alfonso Cuaron’s 3D space epic Gravity debuted to a record-breaking $55.8 million in North America, the top October opening of all-time and the best three-day showing for stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.
Overseas, Gravity also won the weekend with a solid $28.4 million from 27 markets for a worldwide total of $84.2 million.
Gravity’s launch caps a substantial production and marketing effort by Warner Bros. and years of work on Cuaron’s part. The $100 million movie — doing huge business in 3D cinemas ($44 million) — appears destined to be a player in this year’s awards race, based on critical reaction and box-office returns.
Running only 90 minutes, Gravity received an A- CinemaScore and skewed male (54 percent). Adults over the age of 25 made up more than 82 percent of the audience, while nearly 60 percent was over the age of 35. This was evidenced by a sizeable 31 percent jump Saturday, when more adults become available.

Finally I found time to upload some pictures of Sandy attending the Teen Choice Awards last Sunday, 11. She won Choice Summer Movie Star and Choice Movie Chemistry (with Melissa McCarthy) awards for The Heat. I also have screen captures of the show, thanks to Brianne.

The Toronto International Film Festival released their long list of films for its 2013 edition, and Gravity is one of the movies to be presented this year.
Gravity Alfonso Cuarón, USA/United Kingdom North American Premiere
Gravity is a heart-pounding thriller that pulls its audience into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer accompanied on her first shuttle mission by veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney). On a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone — tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth… and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But their only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
The festival runs September 5-15, 2013.
