BOX OFFICE: Batfleck's GONE GIRL Drives Stake Through DRACULA UNTOLD

Ben Affleck beat his wife ... at the North American box office this weekend. His new film Gone Girl, which was directed by David Fincher, bested all newcomers.

David Fincher's Gone Girl, which stars Ben Affleck ("Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice") pulled in $27.6M this weekend at the North American box office. It only experienced a miniscule 26% drop. The first-place finish makes Gone Girl the first R-rated drama since 2010's Shutter Island to hold the No. 1 position two weeks in a row. It now has a ten-day total of $75M.

Universal is hoping Dracula Untold will be the start of their planned classic monsters cinematic universe. The action-horror film will finish in second-place with a respectable $23M debut. Audiences were rather kind to the vampire origin film, as they gave it an “A-” CinemaScore. That was a popular score as two other films debuting this weekend, Jennifer Garner's Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and Robert Downey Jr.'s The Judge received that very same score. Garner's family-friendly film, which also stars Steve Carrell, will finish in third, with $19M+. While the Iron Man star has been sentenced to a lackluster fifth-place finish, with only $13M+.
