Gravity Soars to Third Consecutive Box Office Victory

by at . Comments

Sir Isaac Newton was right: there is no stopping Gravity.

The Sandra Bullock-anchored drama finished first at the box office once again this week, sailing past the $170 million mark after just 17 days in release.

The movie is now the tenth highest-grossing domestic film of 2010 and should easily clear $250 million in the U.S. before its run is over. Globally, Gravity has already earned $284.8 million.

Elsewhere, Captain Phillips grossed $17.3 million and sat once again in second place, while mixed Carrie reviews may contributed to a disappointing opening for this horror remake.

It only averaged $5,385 per theater and came in third.

The presence of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarznegger, meanwhile, was not enough to make movie goers forget about the mostly negative Escape Plan reviews, as that film tanked.

Here is a look at the top five overall:

  1. Gravity: $31 million
  2. Captain Phillips: $17.3 million
  3. Carrie: $17 million
  4. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2: $10.1 million
  5. Escape Plan: $9.8 million
