Gone Girl continued to hold the top spot against four new challengers this past weekend. The David Fincher directed thriller made another $26 million over the weekend, down less than 30% from last weekend, and seems to be on track to become one of Fincher’s highest grossing movies.
Dracula Untold, despite tons of mocking and less than stellar reviews, took second with $23.5 million. It’s way up from the other kinda/sorta reboot of a classic monster from earlier this year, I, Frankenstein and slightly better than recent similar movies like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and was just under the last Underworld.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day took third with a kind of mediocre $18.4 million, especially for a Disney family comedy. It had a better opening than Adam Sandler’s Blended from earlier this summer.
Annabelle dropped almost 60% from last weekend with another $15.9 million, good for fourth place. It’s drop is much more than The Conjuring’s drop and it also is down overall from it’s predecessor.
The Judge, Robert Downey Jr’s star studded drama, took fifth with $13.1 million. It’s up from the last dramatic RDJ role, The Soloist and the recent This is Where I Leave You but Gone Girl had to have stolen most of the audience who would have seen this.
In seventh was the other new release of the weekend, Addicted, which seemed as generic as it’s name and only made $7.5 million and will probably quickly fall off the charts.
Left Behind is on the brink of falling off the charts, barely keeping 10th place with another $2.8 million.
