Gravity

With awards chatter already orbiting Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, his latest film took another positive step forward, launching top of the box office in the US this weekend with an impressive $55.5 million.

Last week’s champ, ‘toon sequel Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2, was pushed down to second place, earning $21.5 million for a current domestic total of $60.5 million. Gambling crime drama Runner Runner faltered despite featuring Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake, arriving in third place with $7.6 million. Kidnap thriller Prisoners was down to fourth, taking in $5.7 million, while Rush was fifth with $4.4 million.

In sixth place, Joseph Gordon Levitt’s Don Jon took home $4.16 million, ahead of Baggage Claim, which fell to seventh with $4.12 million. Insidious Chapter 2 slipped a couple of places to eighth and $3.8 million and new romantic comedy arrival Pulling Strings debuted at ninth with $2.5 million. Finally, Nicole Holofcener’s Enough Said added screens and nudged its way into the top 10 with $2.1 million.

To see Sandra Bullock set fire to Justin Timberlake’s poker hand in the full chart listings, head to Box Office Mojo.

It's been released in Germany - in dubbed form - so there must be some UK-specific reason for WB not to release it this week. More

Re: release date for Gravity
