BOX OFFICE: GRAVITY Soars To $400M Worldwide As ENDER'S GAME Crashes And Burns With $28M
With critics calling it the best movie of 2013, it should come as no surprise to learn that Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity (which still hasn't opened in many countries) has now earned an amazing $400 million worldwide! Ender's Game meanwhile has opened in North America with an underwhelming $28 million.
Arguably exceeding everyone's expectations, Gravity has now become the biggest live-action October release of all-time at the worldwide box office. After taking a whopping $219.2 million in North America and £207.5 million overseas (where it has yet to open in key territories such as the UK), it now has a cume of over $400 million. Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, the Alfonso Cuaron helmed movie took an additional $13.1 million domestically this weekend. However, while it now sits at #5, Ender's Game - the #1 movie in North America this weekend - took only a paltry $9.9 million on Friday for a projected three-day total of $28 million. Hardly a great start for a new franchise, and with Thor: The Dark World and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on the horizon, don't expect to hear much more about this one. What did you watch this weekend?
