Suddenly Susan is back with this weeks Box Office Breakdown!
We have a new #1! Ender’s Game took the top spot but it didn’t exactly take flight at the box office! Doh!
Suddenly Susan has the full recap for us!
Check it out after the jump!
I’m officially the smartest person alive when it comes to predicting the box office… that or the luckiest! Ender’s Game indeed came in at number one with $28 million. With a budget of $110 million, I don’t think anyone at Paramount is jumping for joy. Ender’s Game could ultimately find success if it plays well overseas.
Slipping slightly, but not breaking a hip, was Bad Grandpa, who came in at number two with $20.5 million. The movie has more than quadrupled its $15 million budget in just two weeks!
The senior comedy Last Vegas came in at number three with $16.5 million. Not a bad showing, but certainly nothing to write home about from the retirement facility.
Relativity’s animated comedy Free Birds got cooked at number four with $16.2 million. Though I personally love the message of vegetarianism, I don’t think parents were keen to have their children to start bawling over their Thanksgiving Day dinner.
Gravity got knocked down to the number five spot earning $13 million. It was bound to happen, but after earning a domestic total of $220 million in just five weeks, there’s something to major to celebrate.
Captain Phillips lost a little wind in its sails, falling to number six, but earning another $8.5 million to its impressive domestic total.
12 Years a Slave opened to just 410 theatres, but still managed $4.6 million in ticket sales. That should prove it worthy of a wider release.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 still has quite an appetite, coming in at number eight with another $4.2 million after eight weeks in release. That’s one amazing recipe for a hit!
Carrie telekinetically fell to the number nine spot with $3.4 million after just three weeks in release. I think we can kiss her goodnight and out of the top ten next week.
The Counselor was served a harsh sentence, rounding out the top ten after its second week in release and just $3.2 million added to its domestic gross of $13 million.

Next week I’m predicting Thor: The Dark World will pulverize the competition and take the top spot in upwards of $70 million.
Tune in to see if I’m right!
