After 3 weeks on the top of the box office, Gone Girl has been toppled by WWII drama Fury which has made over $2.5 million in its opening week. It isn’t at all surprising for a war film to do solid numbers, especially one that stars Brad Pitt. Gone Girl is firmly planted in second spot, still raking in huge figures in its 4th week and not too far behind Fury.
The only new release this week that has made a dint is This is Where I Leave You, coming in at number 3 but still far from doing Gone Girl numbers.
