Gone Girl was able to retain its position atop the box office for another weekend, while its close competitor from last week, Annabelle, saw a big drop in ticket sales. Everyone has talking about David Fincher's Gone Girl, and all of that buzz is surely what helped it stave off this week's flurry of new releases. With all of its great twists and craziness, it's the kind of movie people just can't seem to get enough of, and I imagine it's going to remain talked about deep into awards season where it should be a major contender. Dracula makes his big screen return in his origin tale, Dracula Untold, which had an strong opening stateside with $23.4 million but has found even more success overseas where its already amassed $86.1 million. Disney's family comedy Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day starring Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner bounced into the charts with $19.1 million. Annabelle fell way down from its $37 million debut last week, coming in at 4th with $16.3 million. Finally, family courtroom drama The Judge, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall opened in 5th place, with a disappointing total of $13.3 million. I would have certainly expected better from the film considering the star talent, in addition to how well it has dominated this month's Pick My Flick. See you next week when Brad Pitt's Fury rolls into the box office!
