BRAZIL: 'Gravity' Rises to #1
on October 23, 2013
Gravity dethroned Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 for the top spot at the Brazilian box office. The sci-fi film took a narrow lead from the weekend despite playing in less than half the screens showing the animated sequel. The $1.43 million take for Gravity propelled the film to a $4.1 million cume in its second frame. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 finished the weekend with a $1.4 million tally from 639 screens, bringing its Brazilian total to $9.2 million.
Prisoners premiered in third place, finishing the weekend with an $810K gross from 218 screens. Prisoners was the weekend’s top new release after fellow openers Serra Pelada and Diana struggled to make an impact. Diana opened in 87 screens for a $165k tally at the bottom of the table; the Lady Di biopic only played in 87 screens and collected a middling $1,901 per-screen average.
Escape Plan continues to prove the Brazilian audience’s waning interest in aging action stars. The Stallone/Schwarzenegger vehicle fell to the bottom half of the table with a $334K gross in its second weekend. Escape Plan has grossed a total of $1.3 million in Brazil and will hope to end its run in the territory above the $2 million mark. Riddick has shared similar box office struggles, occupying the eighth position in this weekend’s chart with a $285K hold. Riddick has grossed a total of $1.1 million in Brazil.
