Box Office Breakdown: Gravity Pulls in Some Serious Cash


I’m so happy that Gravity made a lot of money this weekend at the box office.  I got lucky and caught it a few weeks ago and thought it was one of the best films of the year, and was done incredibly well.  I worried, though, that some audiences might not go for it.  While there’s plenty of ‘action’ and excitement in the film, it still seemed like it wouldn’t appeal to the masses.  Thank goodness I was wrong and the film managed to set a record debut for October.

1.  Gravity $55,550,000 $55.5
2.  Cloudy with a Chance 2 $21,500,000 $61.5

Too bad for Runner Runner, however.  So which film got your money this weekend?
