In a photo finish this weekend, it was Nightcrawler by a nose. The thriller took in $10.9 million, taking the lead by just $9,000!
Ouija conjured up $10.9 million in second place for a domestic total of $34.9 million. With a tiny budget of just $5 million, that’s one scary big profit so far.
Fury held strong at number three with $9.1 million, but is still in the red after three weeks in release.
Gone Girl also held its spot from least week at number four with $8.8 million. This mystery thriller has already earned $279 million worldwide Ben Affleck a hit.
In a case of DeJa Vu, The Book of Life held its spot at number five with another $8.3 million, but is still $10 million shy of profit. That’s a harsh lesson in reality.
After a solid opening last week, John Wick tumbled to number six with $8 million. Looks like the puppy revenge thriller won’t have a kitten revenge sequel anytime soon.
St. Vincent moved down one spot to number seven with $7.7 million. This indie charmer may have some box office legs.
Alexander also fell just one spot to number eight with $6.4 million. After four weeks in release, this family friendly film has earned $69 million worldwide.
The Judge actually moved up a spot to number nine with $3.4 million, but it’s still not enough to save this drama from taking a big loss.
Rounding out the top ten was Dracula Untold, who sucked up another $2.9 million for a domestic total of $52.8 million.

Next week Disney’s Big Hero 6 takes on Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. This one is a tough call. I fear my winning streak may be at an end. I’m going with Big Hero 6 for the win. Tune in to see if I’m right. Until then, happy movie going!
