Warner Bros.’ $100 million Alfonso Cuarón-directed thriller Gravity blasted off on its opening weekend at the box office, scoring a stunning $55.6 million from 3,575 theaters. The sci-fi title, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, set a new October opening weekend record, surpassing Paranormal Activity 3‘s $52.6 million debut in 2011.

Gravity also marks the best-ever debut for both of its stars, beating Bullock’s $39.1 million start for this summer’s The Heat (talk about having a great year at the box office!) and Clooney’s $42.9 million debut for Batman & Robin in 1997. And to put a cherry on top of Warner Bros.’ incredible weekend, audiences issued Gravity an excellent “A-” CinemaScore grade, which will yield great word-of-mouth for weeks to come. READ FULL STORY

Warner Bros.’ $80 million thriller Gravity demonstrated some major pull on its opening day at the box office. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as stranded astronauts, scored a tremendous $17.5 million on its first day, which puts the film on pace for a weekend in the $50 million range.

Gravity will almost certainly become the best opening weekend ever for both of its stars, surprassing Bullock’s $39 million start for The Heat earlier this year and Clooney’s $42.9 million debut for Batman & Robin in 1997. It looks like Warner Bros.’ bold, stylish ad campaign has paid off. READ FULL STORY

Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck clash in new 'Runner Runner' trailer -- VIDEO

Before Batfleck Ben Affleck dons the Dark Knight’s mask, he’ll be squaring off against Justin Timberlake in gambling thriller Runner Runner.

The upcoming film, penned by Rounders writers Brian Koppelman and David Levien, centers on a cat-and-mouse game between Princeton grad student Richie (Timberlake) and gambling con man Ivan Block (Affeck). Richie initially flies to Costa Rica to confront Block about his losses in online poker, but soon gets taken under the corrupt Block’s wing — and trapped in the harsh underground world of gambling.

The latest trailer teases the rapid turn of events — as J-Kwon’s “Tipsy” inexplicably plays in the background — with shots of Timberlake running (running) and Affleck in full villain mode.

“If your boss says you gotta go out there and take a beating,” Block barks at Richie. “Take it and then say, ‘Do you need me to take it again?’”

Check out the new trailer below. Runner Runner opens in theaters October 4.

'Inside Llewyn Davis' trailer takes us on the road -- VIDEO

Inside Llewyn Davis is a road-trip story. The title man is a musician on a mission — he wants to make his living playing music. Unfortunately, life keeps getting in the way.

Still, Llewyn is determined to share his passion through records and live shows, so he takes to the road to look for opportunities.

The new trailer tells us a little more about the despondent man but stops just short of letting us see him audition for a big music mogul.

'Inside Llewyn Davis' trailer takes us inside '60s folk scene -- VIDEO

The new trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen’s Inside Llewyn Davis shows the titular character trekking around, selling his songs and clutching a cat.

The film is set in the 1960s when the music scene in New York was struggling. Inspired by the book The Mayor of MacDougal Street by folk singer Dave Van Ronk, the story follows Llewyn Davis as he struggles to make a living with his music.

Co-starring Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, and Adam Driver, the film features live singing produced by T-Bone Burnett and Marcus Mumford (Mulligan’s husband). Burnett also worked with the Coen brothers on the soundtrack to O Brother, Where Art Thou.

If the songs in the trailer are any indication, the film is going to have another great soundtrack to accompany the classic Coen brothers eclecticism. Check it out here:

'Runner Runner' trailer: Justin Timberlake vs. Ben Affleck -- VIDEO

Know what’s cooler than visiting a tropical island? Owning your own tropical island.

Justin Timberlake, 32, plays a poor Ivy League prodigy desperate enough to gamble for his tuition money on online poker, “one of the internet’s dirty little secrets.” When he goes bust, he suspects the game he thought he’d cracked just might be rigged. So he arranges a face-to-face with the man he thinks cheated him, a sly offshore entrepreneur played by Ben Affleck (reminiscent of the high-rolling scammer he played in 2000′s Boiler Room.)

From there, it becomes a mystery of who’s bluffing whom. The script is written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, the duo who scripted Rounders, so expect a lot of insider gambling lingo and an annoying female character. Watch the trailer now:

Cannes 2013: 'Inside Llewyn Davis' is a close-to-the-bone tale of the early-'60s New York folk scene

Joel and Ethan Coen have never made a movie that didn’t have at least a few big bubbles of perversity percolating through it. That said, one of the ways that I divide their work in my mind is that there are the Coen brothers films in which the perversity stays, for the most part, just below the surface (Blood Simple, Fargo, A Serious Man), which tend to be the Coen brothers movies that I love best. And there are the ones in which perversity stands up and pokes you in the eye (Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, O Brother, Where Art Thou?), which I, for one, have always found tiresome. Their new movie, Inside Llewyn Davis, which premiered tonight at Cannes, is set in the Greenwich Village folk-music scene of the early ’60s, and on the Coen perversity scale, I’d say that it’s right smack dab in the middle in a way that I found far from tiresome — the picture is lovingly crafted, eminently watchable, at times even inspired — yet ultimately frustrating. Inside Llewyn Davis comes just close enough to being an authentic, deep-dish portrait of a vital moment in pop-culture history that I felt a bit of an eye poke when it also turned out to be one of the Coens’ masochistic/misanthropic tall tales.
