on November 13, 2013 by Daniel Garris

Disney's Thor: The Dark World grossed $5.24 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a fifth consecutive day. In the process, the Marvel superhero sequel starring Chris Hemsworth surpassed the $100 million domestic milestone. However, Thor: The Dark World was down a sharp 50 percent from Monday's Veterans Day inflated performance. In comparison, 2011's Thor grossed $5.41 million on its first Tuesday, while last year's Skyfall grossed $7.22 million on its first Tuesday. With a five-day start of $101.399 million, Thor: The Dark World is currently running 32.5 percent ahead of the $76.54 million five-day start of Thor and 7 percent behind the $109.11 million five-day take of Skyfall.

CBS Films' Last Vegas continued to hold up nicely on Tuesday. The modestly budgeted ensemble comedy was down 25 percent and up 2 spots from Monday to place in second with $1.16 million. Last Vegas was down 39.5 percent from last Tuesday's Election Day inflated performance. Last Vegas has grossed a very solid $36.18 million through twelve days of release and is in good shape to hold up well once again this coming weekend.

Paramount's Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa was down 41 percent from Monday, but was still up two spots to take third with $0.87 million. The successful Jackass spin-off starring Johnny Knoxville was down 51 percent from last Tuesday. Bad Grandpa has grossed a stronger than expected $81.12 million in 19 days, which leaves the film $18.88 million away from reaching the $100 million milestone.

Ender's Game was down a sharp 53 percent and one spot from Monday to place in fourth with $0.74 million. The sci-fi film from Lionsgate continues to showcase signs of front-loading, as it was down 65 percent from last Tuesday. With a twelve-day total of $46.33 million, Ender's Game is running 5 percent behind the $48.58 million twelve-day gross of After Earth earlier this year.

Warner's Gravity rounded out Tuesday's top five with $0.66 million. The blockbuster 3D sci-fi drama fell 46 percent from Monday and 43 percent from last Tuesday. With a 40-day take of $233.14 million, Gravity is currently the seventh highest grossing release of 2013 domestically. The film will soon surpass the $234.91 million final gross of Oz: The Great and Powerful to move into sixth place.

Fox Searchlight's 12 Years a Slave followed closely behind in sixth with $0.65 million. The awards season hopeful was down 42 percent from Monday. The 26-day total for 12 Years a Slave stands at a very solid $19.20 million.
