Gravity Remains in Orbit, Repeats as Box Office Champion

by at . Comments

Gravity continued to soar above the box office competition this weekend.

The Alfonso CuarĂ³n-directed drama, which broke an October revenue record last week, blew past the $100 mark on Saturday and has now earned $123.4 in 10 days.

It's already the fourth and third highest-grossing film for stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, respectively. And with positive Gravity reviews continuing to pour in, who knows where it will stop?

Another Oscar hopeful, Captain Phillips, came in second place over the weekend, grossing a respectable $26 million and landing as Tom Hanks' biggest debut since Angels & Demons.

Here's a breakdown of the top five:

  1. Gravity: $44.2 million
  2. Captain Phillips: $26 million
  3. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2: $14.2 million
  4. Machete Kills: $3.79 million
  5. Runner Runner: $3.73 million
