According to Box Office Mojo, "The Heat" has made $159 million at the U.S./Canadian box office as of Oct. 21, 2013. "Gravity" is on track to make more than $250 million in the U.S. and Canada by the time the movie ends its run in cinemas. "Gravity" is also getting a lot of of awards buzz, with many people predicting that "Gravity" will get several Oscar nominations.
"Iron Man 3" is most likely going to remain the highest-grossing movie of 2013. The movie has made $1.2 billion worldwide, with $409 million of that amount coming from the U.S. and Canada. As of this writing, "Gravity" is still opening in several countries, so the international box office of the movie will be much clearer by November 2013.
Bullock's achievement is even more outstanding if you consider that, at age 49, she has defied the odds from many people who think actresses' careers start to go downhill when they're over 40.
