Brad Pitt's latest film, Fury, is performing well at the box office after its first weekend. The film launched straight to the top of the list, kicking Ben Affleck's Gone Girl to second place as it grossed $23.5 million.
It's not surprising that Fury knocked Gone Girl from the top of the list; it's surprising than the Ben Affleck thriller managed to stay on top for a full two weeks. We're not saying Gone Girl is a bad movie; we just did not believe it had the legs to keep on top for so long.
Gone Girl's overall gross at the box office now stands at $107.1 million. Interestingly enough, Gone Girl is not too far from surpassing "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" gross of $127.5 million, another film by David Fincher.
Trust us when we say this, Gone Girl is one of those films that everyone who are interested in thrillers need to watch. The whole thing will shock and surprise; yes, it is that darn good.
In third position at the box office, the animated movie, "The Book of Life" is keeping strong with $17 million debut, which spans across over 3,000 theaters in the United States. With the likes of Fury and Gone Girl controlling the numbers, we doubt this animated film will get far, especially with John Wick launching in 4 days.
At fourth place, the Disney family film, "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" is holding on tight in the top ten for another week. Nothing surprising here since it is a Disney film after all, and families will come out in swarms with their children to get a glimpse of what is causing Alexander's day to be so terrible and horrible.
Back on the matter of Fury, we expect the film to keep ahead of the box office for just a mere week, as Keanu Reeve's latest film, John Wick, will likely punch it from the top. For the rest of October, John Wick will stay on top of the box office numbers since there is nothing else worth watching until November.
