'Ender's Game' Takes Wednesday with $1.5 Million

on November 07, 2013 by Shawn Robbins

Lionsgate/Summit's Ender's Game won Wednesday with $1.504 million, pushing it domestic cume up to $32.5 million. The film is currently pacing 3 percent behind the six-day performance of After Earth. Look for a sharp drop this weekend with the release of Thor: The Dark World, which will also begin splitting screens with Ender's.

CBS Films' Last Vegas added $1.42 million yesterday, representing a 26 percent drop Tuesday. The flick has totaled $21.03 million in six days, just 14 percent behind where Red 2 stood at the same point. BoxOffice projects that word of mouth will continue to carry the ensemble comedy in the days and weeks ahead.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa eased 35 percent from Wednesday of last week to $1.32 million yesterday. After a surprisingly strong second weekend hold, the Paramount comedy continues to hold up well this week. Grandpa's $66.2 million tally thus far is 20 percent ahead of Jackass Number Two and 28 percent behind Jackass 3-D.

Gravity brought in $0.894 million on Wednesday for a week-to-week decline of 37.5 percent. The blockbuster film has amassed $221.83 million domestically, 12 percent behind the pace of Inception.

Relatively Media's Free Birds slid 54 percent from its inflated Election Day Tuesday (when family films typically over-perform) to $0.56 million yesterday, dropping into sixth place behind Captain Phillips. The animation's total gross is $18.3 million through six days, about 1 percent behind Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole.
