It was battle of the spouses at the box office this weekend. Ben Affleck and Gone Girl went up against his wife Jennifer Garner and her film Men, Women & Children. Garner’s MW&C did not do as well as Gone Girl. No surprise there Men, Women & Children is on a limited release and doesn’t go wide until October 17th. Despite having star Ansel Elgort making surprise appearances at some theaters the film only grossed $48,000 in 17 theaters.
Gone Girl is a different story. The film battled creepy doll movie Annabelle for the top spot at the box office and it came out on top. Gone Girl grossed $38 million while Annabelle grossed $37.2 million, so close! Gone Girl managed to bring in more revenue despite being fewer theaters than Annabelle (about 170).
