7th October 2014
There was little doubt over what would be the top film this weekend at the UK box office, and with ease the David Fincher directed Gone Girl starring Ben Affleck debuts at the top.
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 but it had some 'encore' screenings which means it has gone on and made £114,000 this week but, as expected, tumbles down the chart.
