Sandra Bullock and George Clooney‘s film Gravity comes in No. 1 at the weekend box office for the second week in a row!

According to THR, the space flick brought in an additional $44.3 million this weekend, racing past the $100 million mark domestically to end the weekend with total earnings of $123.4 million!

Coming in second place was Tom Hanks‘ new pirate pic Captain Phillips, which did better than expected with a $26 million opening.

Third place went to the animated film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, grossing $14.2 million and pushing its total to $78 million.

Machete Kills, starring Danny Trejo, Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, and Alexa Vega, debuted in fourth place to roughly $3.8 million – the worst wide opening of writer-director Robert Rodriguez‘s career.

Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck‘s Runner Runner tied for fifth place with Hugh Jackman‘s Prisoners, each earning $3.7 million.

    That Tom Hanks movie sounds pretty good, maybe I will go see it on Tuesday when it is Senior Discount Day at my local theater. Not so sure if I would like Gravity.

    I Saw Machete Kills and Enough Said. Enjoyed both.

    Saw Gravity with my mom, she sobbed by the middle/end. I thought it had a couple problems, but overall, it was an okay movie. Beautiful pictures of Earth and space and the story was good, but it felt very rushed but at the same time, very slow. I honestly thought the movie would be 2.5 hours but instead it was only 91 minutes. I think that lent to the “rushed” feeling.

    Examples: When Sandra’s character, Ryan, set her timer and then did all the things she did before the timer went off, it felt like she got them all done in 20 minutes VS. 1.5 hours. Again, it was that rushed feeling. Another thing was the sound, at times I couldn’t even hear what Clooney was saying, even though they were talking with such clear voices, which I disliked. I would have rather heard them talking like actual astronauts in suits speaking over an intercom. Instead it felt like Sandra and George were just sitting in big rooms, doing their lines, crystal clear voices and that was dubbed over the movie.

    I wasn’t totally blown away by the movie, in regards to the Oscar buzz for best movie or Sandra’s performance. Although I do think it could maybe win for Cinematography, etc…
