Brad Pitt's Fury was able to usurp first place from Gone Girl this weekend, though it was a closer race than anticipated.Meanwhile, Birdman opened at four locations in New York and Los Angeles and scored one of the best per-theater averages ever for a live-action movie.Opening at 3,173 theaters, Fury rolled in to first place this weekend with $23.7 million. This debut is in the same general ballpark as movies like Captain Phillips ($25.7 million), Act of Valor ($24.5 million) and The Monume...

Guardians of the Galaxy was back on top of the international box office this weekend; the movie added $23.1 million for a new total of $405 million. Most of that came from China, where Guardians eased 28 percent to $22.3 million. Reports that bad subtitles were causing poor word-of-mouth seem to be unfounded. To date, Guardians has earned $69 million in China, and has a legitimate shot at ultimately reaching $100 million.The 10th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has now grossed $733 m...

On a somewhat quiet day at the box office, Brad Pitt's Fury easily took first place with $8.8 million.That debut is a bit higher than last October's Captain Phillips ($8.5 million), and also noticeably better than The Monuments Men ($6.9 million). Still, it's way off from recent R-rated hits The Equalizer ($12.5 million) and Gone Girl ($13.2 million). For the weekend, Fury is on track to earn $24 to $27 million.Entering its third weekend, Gone Girl eased 32 percent to an estimated $5.55 mil... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 18-Oct-14)Forecast: 'Fury' to Invade Top Spot This Weekend
World War II tank movie Fury will almost certainly take the top spot away from two-time winner Gone Girl this weekend. Meanwhile, The Book of Life and The Best of Me are also opening nationwide.Playing at 3,173 theaters, Fury stars Brad Pitt as the leader of an American tank crew making their way through Germany as the second World War draws to a close.With the exception of 2012's Killing Them Softly-which was an odd, dark crime drama-Pitt has been on a strong run lately as a leading man. T... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 17-Oct-14)Forecast (cont.): 'The Best of Me,' 'Men, Women & Children,' 'Birdman'
<< Continued from "Weekend Forecast"Opening at 2,936 theaters, The Best of Me is the ninth Nicholas Sparks adaptation to hit the big screen. Sparks adaptations have been fairly consistent-the last four movies opened between $16 million and $30.5 million. However, the highest-grossing entry remains 2004's The Notebook, which ended its run with just north of $81 million.The Best of Me seems to fit nicely in to the Sparks playbook. It's a romance (of course), and poster... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 16-Oct-14)Moviegoers Thrill to 'Gone Girl,' 'Annabelle' This Weekend
It was a photo finish at the box office this weekend between Gone Girl and Annabelle, though both movies are winners regardless of their rank.David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's immensely popular novel took first place with $37.5 million, while the prequel to The Conjuring was a very close second with $37.1 million. The two movies were seperated by a mere $378,854.Those impressive debuts led to an overall boom at the box office: the top 12 earned $139.5 million, which is up 21 per...

Annabelle and Gone Girl both had impressive debuts on Friday. While the creepy doll took the top spot on opening day, the David Fincher adaptation should win the weekend.Playing at 3,185 theaters, Annabelle opened to a very strong $15.5 million. That's not too far off from The Conjuring, which took in just under $17 million on its first day. Still, the history of horror sequels (or in this case, a prequel) suggests that Annabelle's weekend will be fairly front-loaded. If it performs in line...

Friday AM Update: Annabelle and Gone Girl both had impressive debuts on Thursday night, and each now seems poised to wind up at the higher end of weekend expectations.Annabelle took in $2.1 million from late night shows. That's lower than The Conjuring ($3.31 million) and both of the Purge movies ($3.4 million and $2.6 million). All three of those titles opened during the Summer, though, when Thursday night shows are easier to attend.A better comparison is last September's Insidious Chapter...

<< Continued from "Weekend Forecast"At the domestic box office, at least, Gone Girl will face stiff competition from Annabelle, which opens at 3,185 locations.The movie's biggest selling point is the fact that it's a prequel to 2013 horror sensation The Conjuring (it shows the origin story of that movie's creepy doll). That movie opened to $41.9 million last July, then held well on its way to a $137.4 million total. It has had a robust post-theatrical life as well, a... (Box Office Mojo - Top Stories 02-Oct-14)
