Box Office: ‘Gravity’ Carries the Weekend With $31 Mil; Wide Entries Pull Down Modest Bows


Originally posted on Variety:

Not even Stephen King’s infamous Carrie could douse the box office fire that is Warner Bros.’ 3D phenom “Gravity,” as it topped its third straight domestic frame with an estimated $31 million (down only 28%), crushing the Sony-Screen Gems-MGM horror remake, which underperformed grossing just $17 million through Sunday.

So far, “Gravity” has amassed a stellar $170.6 million domestically, of which Imax has contributed more than 22%, with $38 million. Premium formats, particularly Imax, have become a major selling point for “Gravity,” lifting its playability.

Internationally, “Gravity” also won its third consecutive B.O. victory, estimating $33.5 million from 51 markets. Mexico — the home country of director Alfonso Cuaron — was the standout debut territory for the film this weekend, with $5.7 million locally. The debut now is the largest opening in Mexico for Cuaron, surpassing “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.”
