Gone Girl: Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike Hold Top Spot at US Box Office

Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl hold the top spot at the U.S. box office for two weeks running and considering the competition it should come as no real surprise, although it has to be pointed out that the crime thriller did just squeak past Dracula Untold. The Gillian Flynn adaptation of his own novel by the same name pulled in $26.8 million on its second weekend at the cinema and the reworking of the Vlad Tepes legend grossed $23.5 million so certainly it was a very big squeak at a difference of $3.5 million in the box office receipts race.
