Sandra Bullock Gravity

Box Office October 18-20, 2013. Gravity was Number One at the box office over the weekend for the third week in a row with $31 Million for $170 Million so far. Captain Phillips was Second for the second week in a row with $17.3 Million. Carrie premiered in Third Place with $17 Million. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 was Fourth with $10.1 Million. Escape Plan premiered in Fifth with $9.8 Million. Prisoners, Enough Said, The Fifth Estate (which premiered this weekend), Runner Runner, and Insidious Chapter 2 rounded out the top ten respectively.

Carrie is a 2013 American supernatural horror film. It is the third film adaptation of Stephen King’s 1974 novel of the same name, though MGM and Screen Gems, who are producing the film, employed a script that is reportedly more faithful to King’s original novel. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz as the titular Carrie White, and Julianne Moore as Carrie’s mother, Margaret White.

Escape Plan (formerly known as Exit Plan and The Tomb) is a 2013 action thriller film starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jim Caviezel. Escape Plan is directed by Swedish filmmaker Mikael Håfström, and is written by Miles Chapman (screenplay) and Jason Keller (rewrite). The film follows Stallone’s character Ray Breslin, a structural engineer who is incarcerated in the world’s most secret and secure prison, aided in his escape by his cellmate Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger).

The Fifth Estate is a 2013 American thriller film directed by Bill Condon, about the news-leaking website WikiLeaks starring Benedict Cumberbatch as its editor-in-chief and founder Julian Assange, and Daniel Brühl as its former spokesperson Daniel Domscheit-Berg. Anthony Mackie, David Thewlis, Alicia Vikander, Stanley Tucci, and Laura Linney are also featured in supporting roles. The film’s screenplay was written by Josh Singer based in-part on Domscheit-Berg’s book Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange and the World’s Most Dangerous Website (2011), as well as WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy (2011) by British journalists David Leigh and Luke Harding.
