Brad Pitt's "Fury" and Michael Keaton's "Birdman" Top Box Office
Posted: October 19th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Brad Pitt's "Fury" war movie took first place at the domestic box office this weekend with $24 million, which is one of the best openings of all time for a World War II film behind "Pearl Harbor" ($59 million), "Inglourious Basterds" ($38 million) and "Saving Private Ryan ($31 million). It's also the highest opening of director David Ayer's career.

The new movie, co-starring Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman, cost $68 million to make and has an 81% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. Thanks to positive reviews, it's expected that "Fury" will have a strong showing overseas, where it begins to roll out next weekend.

The animated "Book of Life" movie, voiced by Channing Tatum and Zoe Salanda, ended up in third place with $17 million, which puts it on track to barely earn back its $50 million budget. Internationally, "Book of Life" took another $8.6 million for a worldwide debut of $25.6 million. It has a 79% fresh rating.

The other new wide release was "Best of Me" romantic drama, which landed in fifth place with $10.2 million, the lowest opening for a Nicholas Sparks adaptation. The previous low was the $12.2 million debut of "A Walk to Remember" in 2002.

"Best of Me" has a terrible 8% fresh rating, but cost only $26 million, a small risk for a Sparks movie. It should easily become profitable after international numbers come in.

On the specialty side, Alehandro G. Inarritu's "Birdman," starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts, earned $415,000 from 4 theaters for a whopping per location average of $103,750, the second best showing in two years after "The Grand Budapest Hotel" ($202,792). "Birdman" has a 92% fresh rating.
