Real Steel and The Ides of March continued to lead the way on Wednesday.

'Real Steel' Still #1 on Wednesday

on October 13, 2011 by Daniel Garris

Real Steel grossed $1.41 million on Wednesday to lead the daily box office for a sixth straight day. The Disney released DreamWorks film starring Hugh Jackman fell 23 percent from Tuesday, which represented the day's largest daily decline among wide releases. Real Steel continues to fall off quickly during the midweek, but it is still very possible that the film will stabilize over the upcoming weekend, especially given its strong Saturday performance this past weekend. Real Steel has grossed $33.97 million through six days of release, which places it 4 percent behind the pace of 2008's Eagle Eye.

Sony's The Ides of March held steady in second place with $0.90 million. The George Clooney directed political thriller starring Clooney and Ryan Gosling was down 14 percent from Tuesday, which represented a solid daily hold. The Ides of March has grossed $13.74 million through six days of release, as it continues to perform very similarly to 2007's Michael Clayton (which grossed $12.98 million during its first six days of wide release).

Fellow Sony release Moneyball held steady in third place with $0.62 million. The critically acclaimed baseball film starring Brad Pitt fell 12 percent from Tuesday and 35 percent from last Wednesday. Moneyball has grossed $51.56 million through 20 days, which gives the film a current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 2.64 to 1. The film is currently running 9 percent ahead of the pace of 2008's Burn After Reading.

50/50 continued to display solid holding power as it remained in fourth with $0.54 million. The Summit release starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen fell 16 percent from Tuesday and just 29 percent from last Wednesday. 50/50 has grossed $19.45 million in 13 days and will pass the $20 million mark either today or Friday.
