There was big continued pull on audiences from Alfonso Cuaron's sci-fi thriller Gravity this weekend. After setting a record for the highest October opening last weekend, the movie held on strong, dropping just 20% and maintaining a death grip on the number one spot. Adding $44 million this weekend, it handily crossed the $100 million mark winding up at $123 million domestic and nearing the $200 million level internationally.

Tom Hanks' biopic Captain Phillips debuted with moderate success, banking $26 million against a $55 million budget and taking a distant second place.

One of the least anticipated sequels of the year, Machete Kills, proved its lack of desirability by opening at a weak fourth place with $3.8 million. That opening marks a huge drop from the original Machete's $11 million opening in 2010 and the lowest debut for director Robert Rodriguez.
