by Daniel Garris

Sony's Fury was up one spot from Wednesday to return to first place on Thursday with $1.11 million. The World War II film starring Brad Pitt was down a slim 1 percent from Wednesday and down 45 percent from last Thursday. Fury placed in third for the week with $18.29 million. That was down 45 percent from the film's opening week performance and brings the film's two-week total to a solid $51.34 million. The film is currently running 3 percent ahead of the $49.94 million 14-day take of The Monuments Men earlier this year.

John Wick was down one spot and 8 percent from Wednesday to place in a close second on Thursday with $1.06 million. The Keanu Reeves led action thriller from Lionsgate trailed Fury by just $51,206 for the day. John Wick placed in second for the week with a seven-day start of $19.54 million. That was on the high end of expectations and was boosted from relatively strong IMAX sales. The film is currently running 23 percent ahead of the $15.88 million seven-day take of 2008's Street Kings.

Ouija followed closely behind in third with $0.94 million. The low-budget PG-13 horror film from Universal and Platinum Dunes increased 8 percent over Wednesday, as the film received a nice pre-Halloween boost yesterday. Ouija was the week's top film with a seven-day start of $24.06 million. That was on the low end of expectations and was 20 percent stronger than the $20.12 million start of last year's Carrie.

Fox's Gone Girl claimed fourth place with $0.896 million. In the process, the critically acclaimed David Fincher directed film surpassed the $127.51 million final domestic gross of 2008's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button yesterday to become the highest grossing film of Fincher's career. Gone Girl placed in fourth for the week with $14.81 million. That was down 38 percent from the previous frame and brings the film's four-week total to an impressive $127.80 million.

The Weinstein Company's St. Vincent rounded out Thursday's top five with $0.690 million. The low-budget comedy starring Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy increased 2 percent over Wednesday. St. Vincent placed in sixth for the week with $10.64 million and has grossed an encouraging $11.77 million to date.
