Box Office Results (11.03.13)


Nov Week 1 PicWhat a week of tribulation the box office seemed to undergo. As ‘Gravity‘ (WB) and ‘Captain Phillips‘ (Sony) fought for #1 on the international box offices, only a few others managed to sprinkle themselves in with the two big dogs, Bullock and Clooney managed to captivate South Korea grossing just over $5 million while Jackman’s claws sink into China grossing just over $14.5 million. This week, ‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa‘ (Par.) topped the charts until the release of ‘Ender’s Game‘ () on Friday. And though ‘Bad Grandpa‘ was #1, ‘Gravity‘ held tight to #2, ‘Captain Phillips‘ in at #3, ‘The Counselor‘ (Fox) only taking #4, with ‘Carrie (2013)’ (SGem) at #5. The foody weather took #6, ‘Escape Plan‘ (LG/S) at #7, ‘12 Years A Slave‘ (FoxS) takes a major jump up to #8, ‘Enough Said‘ (FoxS) at #9, with ‘Prisoners‘ (WB) at #10. Several documentaries have been released onto the charts, pushing several noteworthy films from their spots while others jump up. ‘The Square (2013)‘ (Nou) took #50, and the #1 movie for the month of October in 2013 went to ‘Gravity‘, ‘Captain Phillips‘ just behind, with ‘Bad Grandpa‘ at #3.

This weekend, ‘Ender’s Game‘ (LG/S) was released and took #1 without even fighting for it, just ahead of ‘Bad Grandpa’. The team of oldies push ‘Last Vegas‘ (CBS) into #3, ‘Free Birds‘ (Rela.) into #4, and ‘Gravity‘ floating after it at #5. Tom Hanks steers his ship into #6, ‘12 Years a Slave‘ follows, leading the yummy weather, ‘Carrie‘, and ‘The Counselor‘ at #10. ‘About Time‘ (Uni.) jumps into #12, ‘Dallas Buyers Club‘ (Focus) in at #20, Keanu Reeves’ pet project in at #29, ‘Diana‘ (EOne) at #34, with quite a few new releases straggling behind.
