GRAVITY sucking all the money at box office.. a distant MACHETE hacks

Columbus Day box office numbers developing--people are less accepting of newcomers, instead seeing GRAVITY in droves.. I wrote last week that this may be the movie of the year for a few reasons--and this without even seeing it myself yet! Hopefully that will change soon.
In the meantime.. The numbers as they are rumored to be..

GRAVITY lost about 25% since last week.. but it will still end up being in first place in domestics this weekend--$124 cumulative since last week is pretty darn good for a sci-fi film in the fall.. $44 mil alone this weekend expected ..

CAPTAIN PHILLIPS has some rough shores with a second place $26 mil weekend

It's still a little CLOUDY on how to judge the 2nd MEATBALLS .. $78 cumulative is a little less than what I expected for the kids film

But right where I expected it: MACHETE KILLS is going to be number four this week.. A little over $4 mil for the weekend set.. We'll see how long 2,538 choose to run this R rated flick. Even Lady Gaga's APPLAUSE couldn't save MACHETE this time.

The fake missile warning in Hawaii was scary for residents of that state .. 38 minutes of hell.

Scary for America more may be what ELIANA JOHNSON writes in POLITICO: A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration. President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out. The Old Cold War guard is gone.
