Gone Girl Edges Out Annabelle

It's a tight race at the box office this weekend as the critically praised Gone Girl ($38 million) comes out barely ahead of horror flick Annabelle ($37.2 million).  In fact, it might be almost too close to call yet, as things could change when the final tally comes in tomorrow. Despite that fact, both of these movies debuted to much higher numbers than expected… which is a good thing for the box office, or the fact that there is really nothing else to watch.

It's also surprising to note that Gone Girl's $38 million debut marks director David Fincher's biggest opening, despite all the movies he has made.

Since Annabelle is a prequel to The Conjuring expect more sequels(?) or prequels to The Conjuring.
