Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: November 10, 2013

Marvel dominates the box office once again, while the rest of the top 10 holds relatively strong.

Thor: The Dark World (read our review) comes in at number 1 with $86.1 million, a solid improvement over its predecessor's $65 million debut - not to mention the film is doing extremely well overseas and has amassed $327 million worldwide.

While Thor 2's opening is well behind Iron Man 3's massive $174 million debut earlier this year, it still proves that Marvel's stock is on the way up in a post-Avengers world. We'll see how high Thor can soar in the coming weeks.

Coming in at number 2 is Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa with $11.3 million. Now at $78 million total, this Jackass spin-off is the second highest grossing film in the series and should finish somewhere around $100 million.

Not far behind is Free Birds in the number 3 spot with $11.18 million. As the only kid-friendly option in the top 10, Free Birds held well and is now up to $30 million.

And not far behind Free Birds, in the number 4 spot, is Last Vegas with $11.1 million. The senior-focused comedy has surpassed its $28 million budget and is now at $33 million total.

Falling to the number 5 spot this weekend is Ender's Game with $10.2 million. The film showed promise coming out of Comic-Con, but a paltry $44 million after two weeks is well below expectations.

In at number 6 is Gravity with $8.4 million. There isn't much more to say about Gravity besides the fact it has grossed $231 million domestic (#7 for 2013) and $472 million worldwide (#10 for 2013).

12 Years a Slave holds at number 7 with $6.6 million. The film expanded to 1,144 screens this weekend and saw a 37% bump in grosses. It's now at $17 million domestic.

The number 8 film this weekend is Captain Phillips with $5.8 million. The film is now at $90 million domestic after 5 weeks.

Jumping up to the number 9 spot this weekend is About Time (read our review) with $5.1 million. The time-traveling romance from director Richard Curtis expanded to 1,200 screens this weekend and seemingly provided decent counterprogramming to the other films out there. About Time is now at $6 million total.

In at number 10 is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 with $2.8 million. Sony's animated sequel is now at $109 million total.

Outside the top 10: the Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone team-up Escape Plan opened in international markets this week and has reportedly grossed about $53 million so far. It appears the aged action stars still have a fanbase after all. Additionally, Dallas Buyers Club (read our review) expanded to 35 screens and pulled in $629,000 ($27,000/screen).
