Fury triumphs at weekend box office

FuryAfter two weeks at number one at the box office, Gone Girl was knocked down by war film Fury. Starring Brad Pitt as an army sergeant leading a small team on a deadly mission, the film debuted at the top of the box office with $23.5 million and currently has a 4.4 Tribute star rating. Gone Girl managed to stay strong in second place with over $17.8 million in its third week and a 3.7 Tribute star rating.

In third place this weekend was the animated film The Book of Life, starring Diego Luna and Zoe Saldana. The family film about a man adventuring through the worlds of life and death to be with the woman he loves debuted with $17 million at the box office. It currently holds a 4 Tribute star rating.

Rounding out the top five this weekend are Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (4.2 Tribute stars), which made $12 million in its second weekend, and The Best of Me (4 Tribute stars) with $10 million – the lowest opening for a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks’ novel.

One notable entry in the box office this weekend is Birdman, starring Michael Keaton, which came in at number 17 with over $400,000, despite only opening in four theaters in North America. While that number may seem small, if you put it in perspective, Fury made an average of over $7,000 per theater this weekend, while Birdman averaged over $100,000, which is promising news for the Oscar contender. ~Kelly Townsend
