Brad Pitt latest movie Fury, finally knocked the Ben Affleck/Tyler Perry starrer Gone Girl From the top spot this weekend. Zoe Saldana’s animated movie The book of life did solid numbers, grossing over $17 million on a $50 million budget.

Denzel’s R-rated drama, The Eqaulizer, is still solidly pulling an adult audience, the movie is steadily making its way to the magic $100 million figure – its performing well worldwide too. At final run, The Eqaulizer should gross approximately $195 million worldwide – incredible numbers from a $50 million budgeted R-rated flick (The Eqaulizer 2 is coming for sure).
