(Newser) Gravity scared off Carrie this weekend, pulling off its third box-office win in a row with a hefty $31 million take, reports the Los Angeles Times. Both films were expected to fetch around $30 million, but the Stephen King classic fell far short, with $17 million and the No. 3 spot. Tom Hanks' Captain Phillips held on at No. 2 with $17.3 million, adds the AP. The week's other newcomers flopped, with Escape Plan taking in $9.8 million, and Julian Assange's favorite whipping boy, The Fifth Estate, garnering a truly wretched $1.7 million.
