WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Gravity tops the chart with 55.6 million, the biggest October opening ever -- and the biggest openings for both George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. OTOH, Gravity had a 100 million production budget, so you'd probably still prefer the ROI of a Paranormal Activity movie.  Even so, the overseas markets are likely to be pure gravy for Gravity.  Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 places with 21.5 million on a 37 percent drop; it likely would have been leggier had Gravity not taken all those 3D screens.  Runner Runner shows with 7.6 millio; the studio is undoubtedly relieved it only spent 30 million to produce this.  Prisoners drops to the fourth slot with 5.7 million on a steep 48 percent drop -- likely a product of the subject matter and competition from Gravity for Oscar-bait seekers.  Rush rounds out the Top 5 with 4.4 million on a similarly steep 56 percent drop for similar reasons -- subject matter and Gravity.  Rush is at least doing better in overseas markets where people are more into F1 racing.  Below the fold, Don Jon comes in sixth with 4.2 million on a steep 52 percent drop; it has earned 16 million against a 6 million budget, but the advertising cost was reportedly around 20 million more.

HALLE BERRY & OLIVIER MARTINEZ welcomed a baby boy Saturday.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 tops the chart at 35 million -- about 5 million more than the original and 5 million less than outside projections.This one cost 78 million, substanially less than the 100 million of the original, which helps ensure a profit once the worldwide receipts and home video money rolls in.  Prisoners places with 11.3 million on a 46 percent drop, which is steep, though maybe not surprising given the dark subject-matter; it's close to recouping the production budget here, and is just getting rolling abroad, where Jackman will bring in the money.  Rush shows with 10.3 in its expansion, a tiny bit below projections, though the studio likely wished for a number closer to Argo's 19-20 million range.  A movie about Formula 1 racers is likely to do better biz overseas, but Ron Howard would almost certainly like this to have enough legs for Oscar nominations.  Baggage Claim debuted at No. 4 with 9.3 million on the strangth of the African-American market.  Don Jon rounds out the Top 5 with 9 million, about 2 million less than projections.  It may not be leggy either, because the TV marketing couldn't tell people what was in the movie, which likely results in mediocre word-of-mouth.  Even so, it may make 25 million here and match that overseas, making for a tidy profit on a 6 million budget... and an even bigger profile for wrire-director-star Jospeh Gordon-Levitt.
