It was a scary close race to the finish at the box office this weekend, but the Jake Gyllenhaal crime thriller Nightcrawler came out on top… by a nose.
The low-budget film, which stars Gyllenhaal as an ambulance-chasing man who shoots gory footage for the local news, takes in $10.09 million in its debut weekend.
Last weekend’s top film, Ouija, came in a close second with $10.9 million, bringing it two-week total to $34.9 million.
Fury stays put at #3 with $9.1 million and $60.4 million in three weeks; Gone Girl holds on to the fourth spot with $8.8 million and a $136.6 million total; and the animated The Book Of Life closes out the top 5 with $8.3 million and $40.5 million in three weeks.
That’s a wrap for this weekend. This upcoming week, look out for the release of the Disney film, Big Hero 6.
