    Weekend B.O. Oct. 11-13 (The ‘Captain’ Can’t Beat ‘Gravity’)

    As expected, Gravity once again came in No. 1 this weekend with $44 million. But what is even more remarkable is that the usual box office drop off from the first week to the second for the film was only a mere 21%.

    Beyond breaking the box office record for best opening in October, best opening in the Autumn, and best opening ever for a Sandra Bullock film, "Gravity" had the distinction of finally taking George Clooney's debut weekend record away from...

    'Gravity' Dominates Weekend Box Office with Big Saturday Jump

    3-D space epic "Gravity" delivered a bigger-than-expected $55.5 million at an otherwise dismal weekend box office. Only one other film grossed more than $8 million, holdover "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" ($21.5 million). After the recent ballyhoo over AMC's "Breaking Bad" finale, "Gravity" r...

    Box Office: 'Gravity' Soars Through 'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs' & Leaps Over 'Runner Runner'

    Although profits from this weekend were lower overall than those from this time last year (roughly $19 million less, or a 13.4% drop), the box office still did decently ($123 million—not too shabby) thanks to the top two films and their reportedly mind-blowing visual effects, which made filmgoers mo...

    Box Office: 'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2' Made It Rain; No 'Rush' To See 'Baggage Claim' Or 'Don Jon'

    If the summer went out with a whimper, September is going out with a friendly shrug. With a little over a third of the number of films in release as last year (44 compared to 120), the box office managed to stick in there, missing last year's domestic gross by roughly only $11.7 million (2012—$119.3...
