Our weekend box office results, from Box Office Mojo
1. Gravity – $44,265,000
Still coming in number one, even after Neil Degrasse Tyson explained that it wasn’t very scientifically accurate. Jerk.
2. Captain Phillips – $26,000,000
Representing a natural distrust for any pirate that isn’t a lovable rogue. I just wanna see them singing songs, and fighting supernatural monsters.
3. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 – $14,200,000
Something about puns? I dunno, this is still happening.
4. Machete Kills – $3,797,000
You really thought this deserved to make it into the top five? Enough people said “Yeah, we should go see Machete Kills” to make that happen? Sad.
5. Runner Runner – $3,725,000
Only upon release did someone point out that the only people who care about online poker are probably sitting at home and playing online poker, instead of watching movies.
