'Gone Girl' Narrowly Beats Out 'Annabelle' at Weekend Box Office

Gone Girl and Annabelle went neck and neck at the box office this weekend, with the Ben Affleck thriller pulling in a narrow lead for the top slot with $38.0 million, Variety reports.

Annabelle brought in an impressive $37.2 in its opening weekend – the film is an origin story for the scary doll featured in last year’s The Conjuring.

The Equalizer came in at number three this weekend with a total of $19.0 million at the box office. The Chloe Moretz and Denzel Washington movie dropped from the number one slot last week.

Rounding out the top five were The Boxtrolls and The Maze Runner, bringing in $12.4 and $12.0, respectively.

Reese Witherspoon‘s The Good Lie, which opened in limited release, brought in a less-than-expected $935,000. Jennifer Garner‘s Men, Women & Children, which also opened in limited release, brought in a very small $48,000 for its 17 locations.

    And let this be a lesson learned: people want to see intelligent thrillers for adults just as much as people want to see mindless entertainment (nothing wrong with that, I like to watch those films every once in a while).

    I saw “Gone Girl” last night and I got to tell you, it wasn’t that interesting.I think that “Annabelle” is the female version of Chucky in child’s play, so I’m not even going to waste my money and time on that. These days , movies aren’t as good as they were before. “Taken 3″ is coming out soon,I saw the trailer last night and it kind of reminds me of the Harrison Ford movie ” The Fugitive ” … Hollywood isn’t very innovative in movie-making anymore. It’s just sad 😞

  • Ha

    I’d rather see Annabelle tho
