by at . Comments

The results are in - and Gravity's box office haul is out of this world.

The Sandra Bullock and George Clooney-anchored drama set an October box office record for an opening weekend on Friday and Saturday, raking in $55.6 million across 3,575 theaters.

That surpasses the $52.6 total of Paranormal Activity in 2011.

With Gravity reviews glowing across the board, the film also marks the highest-grossing debut for both of its stars: Bullock's previous mark was $39.9 for The Heat, while Clooney tallied $42.9 for Batman & Robin.

Now let's never talk of Batman & Robin again.

Here is a look at the weekend's to five:

  1. Gravity: $55.6 million
  2. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2: $21.5 million
  3. Runner Runner: $7.6 million
  4. Prisoners: $5.7 million
  5. Rush: $4.4 million
