Over the weekend, audiences were torn between seeing an acclaimed director's adaptation of critically-praised New York Times bestseller or seeing the thing about that doll from the other thing. In the end, it's estimated Fincher's film narrowly pulled ahead of Annabelle, but beware, Gone Girl, because Annabelle will surely return in Annabelle II: Hell's Belles.
Here's your weekend box office:
1. Gone Girl - $38 million
2. Annabelle - $37.2 million
3. The Equalizer - $19 million
4. The Boxtrolls - $12.4 million
5. The Maze Runner - $12 million
