‘Gravity’ Soars Past $300 Million at Worldwide Box Office

Gravity Movie

3D pic already is this year's 10th-highest grossing film Stateside

The box office steamroller that is Warner Bros.’ “Gravity” reached $300 million worldwide Wednesday, with domestic grosses outstanding at nearly $175 million.

Internationally, the 3D B.O. phenom, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, reached $115.6 million from 51 territories. There’s plenty more space for “Gravity” to grow overseas, with major markets like France, the U.K., China and Japan yet to come.

So far, the film’s top-grossing international market is Russia, with $17.6 million in three weeks. Australia and Germany follow, having contributed north of $11 million each locally.

The global endgame for “Gravity” is tough to call, though domestically, the film could easily soar past $250 million. The pic’s overseas benchmark depends on how it’s embraced in 3D-hungry China, as well as the more mature European markets still to come.

“Gravity” is already this year’s 10th-highest grossing film domestically.

If the film holds well again this weekend, it feasibly could notch a rare four straight wins at the box office. Paramount’s “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” provides stiff competition, however.
