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, 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.

New films this week:

  • Mr Peabody and Sherman

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!
