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

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.”
