Weekend Box Office: The Fifth Estate Fails MiserablyBy: Jeremy Muncy - October 22, 2013
Nothing changed this past weekend, in regards to the top two spots as Gravity and Captain Phillips both held onto their first and second position.
Probably the biggest shock / surprise of the weekend was the 8th place finish for the Wikileaks movie, The Fifth Estate. To put this into perspective for you, it debuted with a per-screen average nearly equal to Prisoners, a film in its FIFTH week of release. Another interesting nugget is that Machete Kills has already fallen off, just a week after its release.
You can peruse the weekend box office numbers below:
1.) Gravity – $31 M
2.) Captain Phillips – $17.3 M
3.) Carrie – $17 M
4.) Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 – $10.1 M
5.) Escape Plan – $9.8 M
6.) Prisoners – $2 M
7.) Enough Said – $1.8 M
8.) The Fifth Estate – $1.7 M
9.) Runner Runner – $1.6 M
10.) Insidious: Chapter 2 – $1.5 M
This coming weekend we get Ridley Scott and writer Cormac McCarthy’s all-star thriller “The Counselor” as well as “Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa”.
