Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Sandra Bullock-George Clooney starrer space disaster drama 'Gravity' made an impressive USD 55.6 million debut on its opening weekend.

Directed by Alfonso Cuaron, Warner Bros' USD 100 million sci-fi thriller set a new October opening weekend record by surpassing 'Paranormal Activity 3's USD 52.6 million debut in 2011.



The film also marks the best-ever debut for both of its stars, beating Bullock's USD 39.1 million start for this summer's 'The Heat' and Clooney's USD 42.9 million debut for 'Batman & Robin' in 1997, reported the Entertainment Weekly.

Animation film 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' dropped 37 per cent in its second weekend to USD 21.5 million.

Clooney's friend Ben Affleck could not help save crime drama 'Runner Runner' as the film, also starring Justin Timberlake, came third by earning a weak USD 7.6 million in its first three days.

'Prisoners' and racing drama 'Rush' made up the rest of the Top 5. 'Prisoners' fell 48 per cent to USD 5.7 million, giving the Hugh Jackman starrer a USD 47.9 million total against a USD 46 million budget.

'Rush', the Formula One racing drama starring Chris Hemsworth and directed by Ron Howard, earned USD 18.1 million total to fall short of its USD 38 million budget.
