Three new releases challenged Gravity for the top spot at the box office on Friday, but the 3D space thriller remained on top with $9.1 million.  Gravity will cross $150 today and is likely to win its third weekend in a row, bolstering the film’s Oscar chances.  Carrie put up the best fight with a $6.6 million Friday for second place.  The Stallone vs. Schwarzenegger pitch brought in just $3.4 million in business for Escape Plan, good enough for fourth place.  In a semi-wide release, The Fifth Estate lagged behind with a seventh place opening of $587,000.  Check back tomorrow for the weekend box office report.
