Brad Pitt Brings 'Fury' at the Box Office with $23.5 Million Debut!

Fury has topped this weekend’s box office with a whopping $23.5 million earned!

According to THR, the war film starring Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, and Logan Lerman, delivered one of the best openings of all time for a World War II war movie.

Coming in at second place was Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, earning an additional $17.8 million to pass the $100 million mark domestically.

The family-friendly flick Book of Life, starring the voices of Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, and more, took the No. 3 spot with $17 million.

Rounding out the top five were Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and the Nicholas Sparks romance The Best of Me, which brought in $12 million and $10.2 million, respectively.

Meanwhile, the dark comedy Birdman, starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, and Emma Stone, soared at the specialty box office, earning $415,000 from four theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

    Fury has a much more impressive cast of Jewish actors (Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, Shia LaBeouf, Jason Isaacs) playing WWII soldiers than Pitt’s Inglourious Basterds did.

    I don’t know which thread people are posting on so…I’ll put the comment in both places -

    Dawne -

    I did. I replied to you last night. You probably just didn’t see it because this new format hides half the freaking comment…

    I did what you said, and it still didn’t work, so I knew for sure it was Jared. I wonder how long Jared can go on with no more traffic than he’s getting. If you notice, the other threads have no posts or 1 or 2. Plus, the JP comments have fallen off, when advertisers see how few people JJ actually has visiting his site, just how long are they going to keep advertising here. The JP threads are the only threads that get lots of traffic. Oh well, Jared is certainly a disappointing, greedy little guy.

    Jared’s site gets a shiteload of traffic. Over 4 million unique visitors every month. They just don’t comment is all. Advertisers don’t care if people comment as long as their ads are displayed. You have to be able to guarantee a certain number of impressions, ie, page loads, per ad. According to Alexa.com Jared’s site is 1,080 among US sites, 2,051 worldwide. SiimilarWeb.com, another ranking service, lists Jared’s US rank at 1,331 and global at 1,958 and 11th in Arts & Entertainment (global) with 14.7MIL visits in Sept. That’s a shiteload of ad money.

    Also, the comments have fallen off…but that’s because people have to register to comment. Most casual commenters can’t be bothered. I also don’t know if the comments are counted only when it’s a new comment or if the count includes the replies to each comment. So you could have 250 main comments and another 250-300 replies to comments and it’s actually 500-550 comments. I’m inclined to think the number is exact and the fewer comments is just a result of registration. There’s a lot of names I don’t see anymore but they may just be using new names since the display name is whatever you’ve registered your email account as.

    An excellent film. It movingly registers some of the horror of battle. This account from a D-Day veteran also hits that –
