‘Gone Girl’ Could Face Another Box Office Barn Burner With ‘Dracula’, ‘Alexander’, ‘Judge’ – B.O. Preview

‘Gone Girl’ Could Face Another Box Office Barn Burner With ‘Dracula’, ‘Alexander’, ‘Judge’ – B.O. Preview

After holding off Annabelle’s possessed doll in a photo finish at the box office last week, Gone Girl faces a new round of challengers in what could be another tight race, this time pitting the David Fincher-Ben Affleck thriller against Robert Downey Jr., Dracula and one peeved kid. And while the field is becoming overcrowded with fall entries, the race should help continue the box office’s rebound from a dismal September.

Although it’s taken some hits from critics as a typical courtroom drama, The Judge has wattage in the form of Downey and Robert Duvall. The $50 million pic from Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow, though, could be the season’s first victim of the overcrowded field. Like Gone Girl, it’s an R-rated drama starring a comic-book movie superhero. But it lacks the public chatter of Gone Girl, and could be cannibalized by adult competition.
