Weekend Box Office Report: 'Gravity' Attracts Huge Money

7:31 PM 10/6/2013 by Logan Falk
This weekend is a story in exceeding expectations for this last Friday’s batch of new releases—the highly-rated Gravity earned above even its high projected gross for the weekend, and the slightly less highly-rated Runner Runner somehow managed to earn below its meager predicted range.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
Although the film didn’t quite reach the astronomical height of earnings it was predicted to attain, there was little question that Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 would sit comfortably at the top of the charts.

Battle of the Year
Most weekends, the films coming out (if there’s more than one, that is) are fairly different, presumably to attract a larger audience to the box office. Some weekends, this difference is so large as to be almost hilarious: this weekend, which promises a Taken-flavored revenge film and a quirky flick about an Olympic-level dance competition, is one of them.

Critics Consensus: Prisoners is Certified Fresh – This week at the movies, we've got a frantic search (Prisoners, starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal) and an international dance-off (Battle of the Year, starring Josh Holloway and Laz Alonso).

Telluride: No 'Prisoners' Hugh Jackman Or Jake Gyllenhaal Until Toronto – Also at the Telluride Film Festival picnic I ran into Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve and its producers Alcon’s Andrew Kosove and Kira Davis.
