Box Office Report: 'Gravity' Expected No. 1 for Third Straight Week; 'Carrie' to Settle for No. 2 [TRAILERS]
The Sandra Bullock space thriller Gravity is continuing its box office reign into its third week of release.
Gravity is looking to once again take the no. 1 spot at the box office this weekend with an estimated $29.3 million, according to Deadline. The film, which also stars George Clooney, made $8.8 million Friday, leading the box office race despite three new releases. After this weekend, it will have made over $168 million in only three weeks of release.
The remake of the horror classic Carrie is expected to disappoint in its box office debut. It only made $7 million Friday and is projected to make about $18 million over the weekend, debuting in the no. 2 slot. Carrie stars Chloë Grace Moretz as the titular character and Julianne Moore as her overzealous mother.
Action thriller Escape Plan is expected to do even worse. The Arnold Schwarzenegger-Sylvester Stallone thriller only made $3.4 million on Friday and is expected to gross $9.8 million over the weekend, debuting in the no. 5 slot.
The Fifth Estate, a film dramatizing the life of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, is expected to debut very low even considering its low theater count. The film made $700,000 on Friday and is expected to debut at no. 6 with a low $2 million this weekend.
Seafaring drama Captain Phillips is expected to have a decent second week of release. The Tom Hanks drama made $5.1 million on Friday and is projected at $16.9 million, falling to no. 3 after last week's no. 2 debut.
