Box office report: 'Gravity' scores third weekend win with $31 million; 'Carrie' and 'Escape Plan' both underwhelm

There’s no force strong enough to pull Warner Bros.’ $100 million smash Gravity back down to Earth. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, easily maintained its perch atop the box office in its third weekend, dropping just 28 percent to $31 million — good for a $170.6 million total after just 17 days.

Gravity is already the tenth highest-grossing film of 2013 in the U.S. (it surpassed Bullock’s other vehicle, The Heat, this weekend), and appears to be headed for a finish of at least $250 million, which would put it ahead of director Alfonso Cuaron’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which grossed $249.5 million in 2004. Worldwide, Gravity has already earned $284.8 million.

Sony’s $55 million Tom Hanks drama Captain Phillips spent a second week in second place, dipping 33 percent to $17.3 million for a $53.3 million total after ten days. The well-reviewed film is playing well ahead of Argo, which had earned $43 million at the same point in its run last year en route to a $136 million finish. Captain Phillips will need some major awards attention in the following months to reach those heights, but thanks to great word-of-mouth, it should reach (or get close to) $100 million domestically.

Chloe Moretz, Julianne Moore, 'Carrie' cast talk horror movies

Everyone has a movie they saw too young. It’s basically a rite of passage — being self-aware enough to know that what you’re watching is beyond your years, but suffering through it anyway. Why do you think we include it in our Pop Culture Personality Tests?

At the Los Angeles premiere of Carrie, director Kimberly Peirce’s re-imagining of Stephen King’s 1974 horror classic (and Brian De Palma’s 1976 film), stars Chloë Moretz, Julianne Moore, and Judy Greer recounted their own tales of the movies that traumatized them in their youth.

Julianne Moore cast as 'Hunger Games' President Coin

Julianne Moore, the four-time Oscar nominee who also played Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change, has been cast as President Alma Coin, the steely leader of the rebellion in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2. In Suzanne Collins’ best-selling books, Coin leads the fight against President Snow and the Capitol that began in the mysterious District 13. Katniss and Coin are reluctant allies at the beginning, due to the need to rally around a symbol — Katniss as heroic Mockingjay — but she begins to suspect that Coin is as untrustworthy as the man she aims to replace.

The third and fourth installments of the Hunger Games are slated for release in November 2014 and November 2015. Catching Fire arrives in theaters on Nov. 22.

'Carrie' trailer: Chloe Moretz causes some mayhem

Carrie-Trailer-2.jpg

Carrie just wants to be normal.

Unfortunately, that’s not in the cards for the telekinetic teenage loner. Not when your abusive mother tells you that all the kids are going to laugh at you, shames you with bible verses (and some non-textual religious zealotry), and occasionally locks you in a closet as punishment.

Chloe Moretz stars as the tragic title character in Kimberly Peirce’s update of  Stephen King’s novel and Brian De Palma’s 1976 film. Julianne Moore gets the lucky task of playing her psychotic mother.

Take a look at the latest blood-soaked trailer for Carrie after the jump.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Don Jon' gets a head-turning new poster -- EXCLUSIVE

Don-Jon.jpg

Whenever characters in comedic movies or TV shows end up looking at porn they always do that “head-tilt” trope, which suggests whatever they’re seeing (and the audience isn’t) is so twisted they’re having a hard time telling up from down.

The new poster for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon very subtly tricks the viewer into doing the same, at least if you want to get a good look at the seductive looks Julianne Moore and Scarlett Johansson are giving off.

Coincidence? Probably. But it’s also appropriate given this film’s twisted take on love and sex.

Julianne Moore gets her rock star on: Listen to the full soundtrack of 'What Maisie Knew'; Plus an exclusive clip

You’ve seen Julianne Moore play a lawyer, a housewife, a mother, and a post-apocalyptic survivor, but not until now have you seen her play a rock star.

For indie drama What Maisie Knew, Moore had to learn the swagger and the singing skills of a rocker. She plays Susanna, one half of the pair of negligent, self-involved parents of young Maisie (Onata Aprile). When Susanna and her art dealer husband (Steve Coogan) divorce, Maisie gets shuffled back and forth between the two of them, and soon her two new stepparents (Alexander Skarsgård and Joanna Vanderham) come to care for her more than her childish parents do.

Real-life rock group The Kills became Susanna’s band for the film. Moore sings with them for two songs on the soundtrack, “Night Train” and “Hook and Line.” READ FULL STORY

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Don Jon' gets fall release date

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut Don Jon, formerly Don Jon’s Addiction, will be in theaters Oct. 18. Gordon-Levitt (who also wrote the film) stars as a modern day Don Juan from New Jersey who is addicted to porn. The film made a splash at Sundance and was quickly scooped up by Relativity Media for $4 million. Gordon-Levitt stated in February that he would probably have to cut out some of the film’s racier scenes to secure an R-rating. Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore and Tony Danza also star.

Julianne Moore and Lily Collins star in 'The English Teacher' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

Julianne Moore’s recent characters know their way around a mid-life crisis.

Garnering acclaim for roles in The Kids Are All Right and Game Change, Moore excels at playing complicated women, a trend that is set to continue with Linda Sinclair, her character in the new film The English Teacher. Moore plays the titular high school teacher, a woman whose life outside the classroom hasn’t always measured up to her work inside. When a former student, Jason (Michael Angarano), returns home after failing as a playwright in New York, Linda refuses to let him give up his dream, and decides to mount his new controversial production at the school.

That may have been fine, but Linda also begins a relationship with Jason, which leads to an awkward love triangle between Linda, Jason, and Lily Collins’ “drama student extraordinaire” character, Halle — which naturally gives way to some combative scenes between Collins and Moore. “My character is kind of the catalyst for Julianne Moore’s character going a little bit crazy,” Collins tells EW. “[Moore's character] is kind of having this mid-life crisis, and me calling her out on her relationship with Michael and the play kind of start her on this downward spiral where she shows she’s a bit of a mess.” READ FULL STORY

Check out 'What Maisie Knew' trailer spotlighting child actress Onata Aprile -- VIDEO

A new trailer has been released for What Maisie Knew, the Julianne Moore and Alexander Skarsgård-starring divorce drama that premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

A reimagining of the 1897 novel of the same title by Henry James, What Maisie Knew tells the story of a child shuffled back and forth between her two self-involved divorced parents, played by Moore and Steve Coogan. This new trailer — which has a rather bright tone given the heavy subject matter — showcases child actress Onata Aprile as Maisie finds herself amid the confusion of a changed family situation with new stepparents, played by Skarsgård and Scottish actress Joanna Vanderham.
