Box Office Top 3: 'The Martian' Barely Misses October Record
"The Martian" came close to breaking the record for biggest October box office debut — which is held by 2013's lost-in-space film "Gravity."By Jamal Andress | October 4, 2015
Well, after one dangerous trek through Europe and two long voyages to outer space, I think we can definitively say: Don't go anywhere with Matt Damon. Because not only is he going to get lost, it's really gonna suck trying to pick him up.
"The Martian" came dangerously close to stealing the record for biggest October box office debut — which, ironically, is held by 2013’s "Help I’m Lost in Space" film, "Gravity." "Gravity" holds onto its record by a measly $700,000 or so.
