David Fincher HBO

David Fincher’s relationship with HBO is on the ropes this summer, with news that both of his projects with the network are in trouble of some description. His ‘80s music video comedy was abruptly halted back in June, and now his re-make of ‘Utopia’ looks to be in financial difficulties.

Fincher, who was an executive producer on ‘House of Cards’ for Netflix, had been set to work on both projects in tandem a few months ago, but now the cable network HBO is trying to figure out how to move forward with his dramatic adaptation of ‘Utopia’ as well as salvaging ‘Video Synchronicity’, which has been out of production for nearly two months.

Box Office Report: "Fury" Storms In To Knock "Gone Girl" Off The Throne


Brad Pitt Guillermo Del Toro David Fincher Channing Tatum

Ok, it’s time to talk box office stats again. Unlike the past 2 weeks, however, there are actually some interesting new contenders this week. David Fincher’s smash hit Gone Girl has finally been dethroned. Predictably, the new chamion is the Brad Pitt starrer Fury, which took the throne with $23,5 million over the three-day period, easily topping Gone Girl’s $17,8 million (stats according to Box Office Mojo). Fury, a dramatic and gory WWII tale, exposing the horrors of war, also stars Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña and Scott Eastwood. Even so, Pitt who produced and starred, took center stage during the film’s promo rounds.

Watch the trailer for Fury below.

"Studios use star power as the No. 1 marketing tool, and Brad Pitt has that," says Phil Contrino, box office analyst for BoxOffice.com. "But it's not star power alone which gets people to the theaters. Brad Pitt picks smart pictures that people want to see."

David Fincher's Gone Girl Holds The Box Office


David Fincher Ben Affleck Rosamund Pike

David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel Gone Girl has won the box office for the third week in a row in both America and Britain, a remarkable achievement for a two-and-a-half hour long mystery that loses its surprise value on first viewing. So audiences must be responding to its complex exploration of relationship issues, mainly how difficult it is to know what's going on in a partner's head.

This week in America, Gone Girl saw off competition from both Dracula Untold (which landed in second place) and Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day (at No 3). In Britain, newcomers The Maze Runner and Annabelle were held off at 2 and 3. And the film shows no signs of slowing down, at $162 million worldwide and climbing. Competition this week in America comes from Brad Pitt's Fury, while in the UK the top titles are Palo Alto and The Judge. In both markets, romantic drama The Best of Me is also expected to make its mark.

"Gone Girl" Scores Easy Box Office Victory Over "Dracula Untold"


David Fincher Ben Affleck Rosamund Pike Jennifer Garner

Well, it’s official – David Fincher’s Gone Girl is the winner in another weekend box office race. It wasn’t even a close one this time. On its second weekend, the mystery thriller saw a 29% drop, but still made it to $78 million.

Gone Girl, Ben Affleck
Gone Girl is Fincher's top grossing film to date.

With $26,8 million, Gone Girl narrowly beat our the critically panned Dracula Untold. The gory, vaguely historical flick came in second with $23,5 million, meaning that, despite abysmal reviews, Drac still has a shot at next week’s throne. Recently, director Gary Shore even let slip that he’s thinking about a possible sequel. Even though nothing’s been greenlit just yet, it looks like we won’t be rid of the Romanian prince for a while. Sigh.

Could Ben Affleck Return For 'Gone Girl' Sequel?


Ben Affleck David Fincher

Gillian Flynn had always played down the possibility of a sequel to her bestselling novel Gone Girl. After the insane plot twists and famous ending, the book and movie works well as a standalone piece of work - though given the box-office success of the latter, has Flynn changed her mind?

Ben AffleckBen Affleck is superb in David Fincher's 'Gone Girl'

Speaking to the website at which she used to work, Flynn told Entertainment Weekly in 2012, "I didn't write it as an open ending to set up a sequel at all. It was the only thing that made sense to me, that made sense to what was true to the book and true to the characters. Amy's not going to end up in jail. She's Amazing Amy!"
