Lionsgate Lionsgate

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" did exactly what it was expected to do at the box office this weekend, destroying the record books with a whopping $161.1 million debut according to Film.com.

That's the fourth biggest opening of all time. It also demolished the record for the biggest November opening ever, previously held by "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," which earned $142.1 million back in 2009.

Needless to say, nothing else came close this weekend. But for a full run down of the box office top ten, including figures for Vince Vaughn's disappointing new comedy "Delivery Man," head to Film.com.

As expected, "Thor: The Dark World" performed heroically at the box office this weekend, as the latest Marvel Studios superhero blockbuster earned a whopping $86.1 million according to Film.com.

Combined with the $240.3 million "Thor: The Dark World" has already taken in overseas, Chris Hemsworth and company are now sitting at a tidy $326.4 million worldwide in just ten days of release.

Needless to say, there wasn't a whole hell of a lot else going on at the box office this weekend, as "Thor: The Dark World" pretty much sucked the air out of the room.

Returning champ "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" stayed strong in second place with $20.5 million, while newcomers "Last Vegas" and "Free Birds" debuted in third and fourth place, earning $16.5 million and $16.2 million respectively.

'Bad Grandpa' Wins Box Office

Paramount Paramount

Everybody loves a jackass. And America's top jackass is undoubtedly Johnny Knoxville, as according to Film.com, his new film "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" easily won the box office thanks to a $32 million debut weekend.

That was enough to knock three-time defending champion "Gravity" down to second place. Not that Sandra Bullock and company are complaining, as "Gravity" still earned another $20.3 million, pushing its domestic total to $199.8 million so far.

Meanwhile, the weekend's other big release, "The Counselor," completely crapped out, earning just $8 million despite an all-star cast and a ubiquitous media campaign. Alas.

'Gravity' Wins Box Office Yet Again

Gravity Warner Bros.

For the third weekend in a row, the team of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney dominated the box office, as according to Film.com "Gravity" easily took the top spot on the charts with an estimated $31 million.

That was more than enough to best both "Captain Phillips," which came in second for the second weekend in a row with $17.3 million, and the new horror remake "Carrie," which started strong but faded to third place with a $17 million debut.

And the news was even worse for the weekend's other new releases, as both "Escape Plan" (fifth place with $9.8 million) and "Fifth Estate" (a dismal eighth place with just $1.7 million) bombed out.

'Gravity' Tops 'Captain Phillips' For Box Office Crown

Gravity Warner Bros.

Tom Hanks gave it his best shot, but even America's most beloved actor couldn't knock America's most beloved actress out of the top spot at the box office, as Sandra Bullock's "Gravity" easily topped "Captain Phillips" according to Film.com.

With an estimated $44.3 million, "Gravity" pushed its ten day total to an impressive $123.4 million. Not that "Captain Phillips" was a flop by any means; with $26 million, the film represents Hanks' best opening weekend in years. The news wasn't so nice for "Machete Kills," though, which bombed out in fifth place with a dismal $3.8 million debut.

'Gravity' Rockets to Box Office Victory

Gravity Warner Bros.

There wasn't much doubt which film was going to win the box office title this weekend, and sure enough it was "Gravity" riding buzzworthy performances by superstars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney to a $55.6 million debut according to Film.com.

That set a new October record. Needless to say, it was also more than enough to beat out returning champ "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, which held strong with $21.5 million. And both films crushed new release "Runner Runner," which fizzled out at just $7.6 million despite the presence of both Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck.

Next week should be interesting, with Tom Hanks headlining the drama "Captain Phillips." For now, though, you can check out the full box office top ten over at Film.com.

'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2' Tops Box Office

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Sony

There were no fewer than four new releases this weekend at the box office, but it turned out there was no real competition at all for the top spot, as "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" crushed the competition with a $35 million rake according to Film.com.

That was way more than any of the other new releases managed. Ron Howard's racing drama "Rush" debuted in third place with $10.3 million, while the romcom "Baggage Claim" came in fourth with $9.3 million. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, "Don Jon," only brought in $9 million as well.

Next weekend should be a different story thanks to the team of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney and their new space epic "Gravity." Until then, though, you can check out this weekend's box office top ten over on Film.com.
