Gravity Holds on to Third Weekend

The Sandra Bullock and George Clooney Space flick, Gravity, easily held on to the top spot at the box office for the third weekend in a row ($31 million).  It's strong word of mouth is helping drive 3D sales.

Captain Phillips held on strong for a second place finish ($17.3 million), narrowly beating out newcomer, Carrie ($17 million).

The Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Scharwzenegger movie Escape Plan came in fifth place ($9.8 million)... pretty much in line with what many analysts were thinking, though far behind what the studios have hoped.

As for The Fifth State, the story about Julian Assange, well... nobody went to see it (well some went to see it), as it debuted in 8th place ($1.7 million)... and many are calling it an instant flop.
