Gravity remained on top yesterday with $2.32 million, according to Warner Bros. That marks a 21 percent decline from Tuesday and another strong week-to-week drop of 34 percent. To date, Gravity has amassed $177.24 million domestically and is currently running 33 percent ahead of the pace of The Blind Side and 14 percent behind that of Inception. Gravity is also the first film since last year's The Dark Knight Rises to claim first place for 20 consecutive days (the Batman finale was knocked off after 21 days).
Sony's Captain Phillips added $1.38 million to its haul on Wednesday. Easing 23 percent from Tuesday and 34 percent from the same day last week, the Tom Hanks-driven thriller has earned $56.95 million thus far. By comparison, that's 8 percent behind where The Departed stood at the same in its release cycle six years ago.
The Carrie remake slid 29 percent from Tuesday for a $0.87 million gross yesterday. The horror title is performing along a similar trajectory as last year's Sinister, which Carrie leads/trails by 12 percent. The pic's six-day cume is $19.3 million.
Arnold's and Sly's Escape Plan added $0.702 million yesterday, declining a sharp 33 percent from the previous day. The action-thriller is off to a slow start despite the team-up of the former blockbuster stars, a strategy which previously worked in the Expendables films. Escape Plan has accumulated $12.45 million in its first six days.
In its platform release, 12 Years A Slave bumped its total up to $1.18 million since debuting last Friday. The film took in $0.083 million on Wednesday and is scheduled to expand into more than 100 theaters this weekend before it's wide expansion on November 1.
