Box Office Milestone: 'Gravity' Crossing $300 Million Worldwide
There's no stopping Gravity.
The space survival film starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney will cross the $300 million mark at the worldwide box office Wednesday, according to Warner Bros.
The Alfonso Cuaron–directed film has been No. 1 at the global box office for the past three weeks, doing especially big business in 3D and Imax. This milestone puts the film in the top 10 highest grossing films of the year worldwide.
The top foreign markets include Russia ($14.3 million), Australia ($11.9 million) and Germany ($11.3 million). And the film has yet to open in several major foreign markets; it will hit theaters in the U.K. on Nov. 8, China on Nov. 20 and Japan on Dec. 13.
In North America, Gravity has also rocketed to the top of the box office for three weeks in a row, earning a whopping $175 million to date. It fell just 28 percent in its third weekend to $31 million.
