David Riggs died when a plane he was flying crashed in China.

The film stars Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Terrence Howard and Maria Bello. Scott Bowles, USA TODAY 1:04 p.m. EDT September 22, 2013 As summer fades and studios enter the fall and awards season, studios begin releasing more adult fare. ‘Prisoners,’ starring Hugh Jackman, was No. 1 at the box office. (Photo: Wilson Webb) “Prisoners” appeals to adult audiences after summer of teen fare “Insidious Chapter 2” hung on for second place “Wizard of Oz” re-release followed the yellow brick road SHARE 18 CONNECT 32 TWEET 1 COMMENTEMAILMORE Hollywood began its seasonal migration to more adult fare this weekend as the fall-oriented Prisoners scored a convincing win at the box office. The crime drama starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal collected $21.4 million, according to studio estimates from ticket talliers Hollywood.com. The haul slightly exceeded analysts’ expectations, propelled by strong reviews as Prisoners marked one of fall’s first awards contenders. According to survey site Rottentomatoes.com, Prisoners won over 79% of critics and an impressive 90% of moviegoers a strong public reaction to a dark, R-rated film that runs 2 hours long. The film benefited from public hunger to get away from summer’s big-budget spectacles, says Tim Briody, analyst for ticket trackers Boxofficeprophets.com. Briody says Prisoners “found the right combination of star power and strong reviews to give audiences a reason to check out the crime thriller in what’s been a weak September at the movies.” Gitesh Pandya of Boxofficeguru.com says the film’s pedigreed cast, which included Viola Davis, Terrence Howard and Melissa Leo, “played to a mature adult crowd,” often neglected in the summer gold rush for teen audiences. Alas, it was the kids left with the scraps this weekend. Insidious Chapter 2 took second place with $14.5 million in its second weekend.

Riggs was a well-known Hollywood stunt pilot, and the center of considerable controversy over a string of legal problems and penchant for self-promotion. Riggs website touts his credentials as a holder of several aviation speed world records, but doesnt mention the fact his U.S. pilots license had been suspended twice. Yang Qing/ Yang Qing/Xinhua Press/Corbis David Riggs body was recovered after more than 70 hours of searching. The first time was after buzzing the famed Santa Monica pier in Los Angeles in his Vodochody L-39 Albatros jet trainer. Riggs was sentenced to 60 days of community service and 60 days in jail for reckless flying. He lost his license again in November for selling rides in his plane without permission. The prosecution came after a plane piloted by a business partner crashed, killing both people on board. Riggs had a stack of other legal problems, including convictions for bank, wire and passport fraud. He aroused such contempt among some pilots that a website aviationcriminal.com was devoted to chronicling his misdoings. His website describes him as CEO of California-based Mach One Aviation, Inc. and as a Hollywood stunt pilot, movie producer and world aviation speed record holder. It said his aerial performances had featured in movies and television shows including Iron Man, Jarhead, and the James Bond film Casino Royale. Despite his license suspension, he was hired by the organizers of the AOPA-China Fly-In 2013 air show as one of its star attractions.
