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.
