News from around the web

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.

After an impressive 3 week run at the top Wolf of Wall Street this week surrenders to animated feature Mr Peabody and Sherman.

An early half term treat for the kids, Mr Peabody makes a splash at the top with £3.9 million over the weekend beating out quite easily a challenge from the Robocop reboot which lands at 2 with £2.4 million.

The Wolf of Wall Street dips to number 3 with a weekend take of £1.6 million bringing it's total to £17 million.

New films this week:

  • Mr Peabody and Sherman

Five years ago there was also a change at the top with Brad Pitt starring in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button making it's debut knocking Slumdog Millionaire down to number 3.

Ten years ago it was a similar story when Jet Black's starring School of Rock took over at the top on it's debut knocking the previous weeks top film Scary Movie 3 to number 4.

Fifteen years ago (and not to sound too receptive) A Bugs Life took over at the top on it's debut week knocking Shakespeare In Love into the runner up spot.

Finally twenty years ago Mrs Doubtfire was still the big film of February with Free Willy proving to be the big new film of the month.

For a third straight week there is no change at the top of the box office with The Wolf of Wall Street still proving too dominant and with little in the way of big new releases.

Wolf adds another £2.4 million to bring it's total to £14.9 million and looking to be Scorsese's biggest film, his previous best was Oscar winning The Departed from 2006.

That Awkward Moment Highest new film is at 3 with That Awkward Moment with took a relatively low £961,167 over the weekend.

Long running films Frozen, Gravity and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug are still doing well but this could be the last weekend for The Hobbit and Gravity, although The Oscars could change that.

Five years ago Slumdog Millionaire was still doing well at the top with highest new film Revolutionary Road entering at 3.

Ten years ago the as also no move with Scary Movie 3 staying at the top, no new films in the top 10, highest new film was Cold Creek Manor at 14!

Fifteen years ago Shakespeare in Love entered the box office at the top knocking Little Voice down to 3.
