Good Evening boys and girls, it’s a good weekend for cinephiles as Gone Girl has gone straight to number 1 beating off competition from Annabelle. Gone Girl managed an opening weekend of $38m beating off a strong opening from the new horror flick, Annabelle came oh so close with $37.2m no doubt benefitting from its links to The Conjuring (2013).
The Equalizer was pushed into third place as a result after an ok weekend of $19m. My only question is what the hell happened to The Guest? It’s sunk without trace in North America despite it being one of the best films of the year to date. Clearly we must be more cultured in the UK – well that and we had a recognised distribution company involved on this side of the pond.
