‘Gravity’ Soars to $100 Million Worldwide

3D space epic earned a strong $6.6 million Tuesday domestically

Warner Bros.’ 3D hit isn’t ready to come back to Earth just yet.

After setting an October record this past weekend at the U.S. box office, “Gravity” crossed the $100 million mark globally on Tuesday.

Directed by Alfonso Cuaron, the space drama earned an additional $6.6 million Tuesday in the U.S. — almost unheard of for midweek in October — bringing its domestic total to $68.4 million.

Gravity’s” foreign cume, meanwhile, currently stands at $35.8 million.

Cuaron’s long-gestating space drama benefited from 3D ticket sales in its debut weekend (80% of the pic’s sales last weekend were for the 3D version) in addition to strong word of mouth.

“October is strong, but not a lot of people have taken a shot at it,” Warner domestic distribution prexy Dan Fellman told Variety. “To jump out at 80% (in 3D) opening weekend is phenomenal.”

The film’s $55.6 million weekend launch, a career best for stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, eclipsed October’s previous record of $52.6 million, set by “Paranormal Activity 3” in 2011.

The $80 million-budgeted “Gravity” should have plenty left in the gas tank, both domestically and internationally in coming weeks. “Gravity” expands from overseas 27 markets over the next month and is expected to keep a stronghold Stateside this weekend as it battles Sony’s adult thriller “Captain Phillips” with Tom Hanks.
