Weekend Box Office- November 1-3, 2013

Written in



Ender’s Game opened at number one as expected and the gross was right around expectations. Orson Scott Card’s classic sci-fi story had a huge cast including Ben Kingsley, Harrison Ford and Viola Davis but could not break through to a huge opening collecting $28 million. With Thor opening next week it does not bode well for Ender’s staying power. Last Vegas (or Geriatric Hangover) finished in third just ahead of the animated Free Birds. Gravity earned $15.1 million in its fifth week of release.

Thor: The Dark World was the big story even though it does not open here until next week. The God of Thunder opened in multiple markets overseas and brought in a mighty $109 million. That is a huge head start on what is sure to be a big weekend coming up for the Marvel film.
