Returning into the number one spot, Gravity was able to pull in $44 million on its second weekend. Meanwhile, Captain Phillips, in its debut weekend, was able to come in strong in second with $26 million.
This box office brings Gravity‘s total to $123.4 million. With a budget of $100 million, it looks like the movie is in a good place right now. Meanwhile, with a budget of $55, Captain Phillips should be able to do well in its run.
Not as fortune was Machete Kills, which also opened this weekend to just $3.7 million. Ouch. I don’t think the budget for it was that much, but I’m sure they would love to have some more. That was half of the $8 million it was expected to gather, and only a third of what the original opened with. I guess they may not be able to get that Machete Kills….In Space after all.
Coming out next weekend is the Carrie remake, The Fifth Estate, 12 Years a Slave, Escape Plan, All is Lost and Kill Your Darlings. Some pretty exciting titles, but I’m not sure how much change they’ll bring in. I figure the Carrie remake will be taking it, but we’ll have to see.
