Released on 26th December in 2014 the film entered the box office chart at the second best film of that week with a doubt gross of £1.9 million.
It never went any higher than 2 and over a 5 week run on the box office the films took a UK gross of £6.7 million.
Last weeks top film, A Walk Among The Tombstones falls this week to number 4 after 3 new entries enter at the top.
Apart from The Equalizer at the top there is The Box trolls at number 2 and What We Did On Our Holiday at number 3.
It's weekend take of £4.1 million Gone Girl makes a very impressive October debut. It has a long way to go for it to be Ben Affleck's top grossing film which is currently Shakespeare in Love from 1999.
Director David Fincher also has an impressive box office record, his best film to date being 1995's Seven, his second film, and considered a classic.
Coming in quite respectably in second is Dracula Untold which debuts at number 2 with £1.7 million.
Falling a single place to number 3 this week is The Equalizer which add's £1.2 million to make a 10 day total of £4.3.
Last weeks top film was an event movie for one day only, which actually had some “encore” screenings which means it hans on and makes £114,000 this week but, as expected, tumbles down the chart this week.

Two other film entered the box office this week inside the top 15
What We Did On Our Holiday at 4
Maps to the Stars at number 15
This time last year Prisoners took over at the top from Ron Howard's Rush which went back to number 2 after a single week at the top.
Five years ago the remake of 70's classic Fame hit the box office summit on it's debut week knocking Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs after a week at the top.
Ten years ago it was all change at the top end of the box office with Wimbledon taking the number 1 spot knocking Collateral down to 3.

Based on the 80's TV show of the same name, the Antoine Fuqua directed film tops the box office on it's debut weekend of release with a gross of $35 million.
Falling to number two this week is The Maze Runner which on it;s second week of release takes $17.5 million takings it's total gross after 10 days to $58 million.
Also new on the US box office this week is The Boxtrolls which enters at 3 with a gross of $17.2 million.
Having done the media rounds during the week the Antoine Fuqua directed The Equalizer will no doubt hit the top spot over the weekend. The film stars a popular Hollywood figure and has the built in audience of the original 80's TV show.
Map to the Stars is set to make a smaller splash this week, but given the female cast and the male dominated Equalizer this could easily get a top 5 entry, Pride is a challenge but on it's way out already.
The Boxtrolls is bound to loose it's place at the top this weekend and Liam Neesons A Walk Among the Tombstones will most likely stay in the runner up spot behind Mr Washington.
