Fending off to keep the title this week is "Gone Girl" holding it's #1 spot for the 2nd week in a row with a very low drop bringing in an extra 26.8 million. It is currently on track to possibly hit the 150 mil mark when it is all said and done. New at #2 is "Dracula Untold" debuting with a decent 23.5 mil and right about expectations. The number is fair but in the bigger picture, not enough. New at #3 is "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" with a 19.1 mil opening. Just shy of expectations but still good for this film during this time. Holding on to #4 is "Annabelle" with another 16.4 mil as it tries to reach the 100 mil cume but won't make it. New at #5 is "The Judge" earning 13.3 mil and below expectations but still a decent opening.
New movies that did not make the top 5:
Just one this week as "Addicted" comes in at #7 and made 7.6 mil and not too far off industry estimations.
New movies next week:
Coming up is three new films for next week. First off is "The Best of Me" based on a Nicholas Sparks novel from 2011. Good date night movie and potential for a 10 to 15 mil opening. Up next is "Book of Life" which is set in the style of the Spanish Day of the Dead theme but for families. Looks like a fun film but probably will hit below 20 mil to open. Last but not least, one film I am excited to check out is "Fury," set in Europe towards the end of World War II as we follow the survival and exploits of one tank and its crew. This could get some award buzz later on, looking to open at 20 but I think it could go pass that.
