Following "Gone Girl" is "Dracula Untold" starring Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon and Dominic Cooper at number two having earned over $23 million on its debut.
Affleck's wife Jennifer Garner also stars in "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" opposite Steve Carell, which earned $20 million on its debut and the third spot at the weekend box office.
The Miguel Arteta-directed film also stars Ed Oxenbould, Dylan Minnette, Kerris Dorsey, Bella Thorne and Megan Mullaly among others.
At number four is the horror flick "Annabelle," which earned $16 million on its second week followed by "The Judge" starring Robert Downey Jr. at number five with $13 million.
Although "Dracula Untold" failed to steal the number one spot from "Gone Girl," its debut is considered successful at the box office.
On the other hand, despite its successful debut, "Dracula Untold" has received negative reviews, such as appearing to be the first act of a superhero film stretched to become a feature-length movie, according to Breitbart.
For director Gary Shore, the possibility of a "Dracula Untold" sequel depends on how the audience respond to it.
The audience could go as far as they could in terms of the film's story and they are not limited to do so as "Dracula Untold" is "divorced from Bram Stoker's novel," Shore explained.
In an interview with Screen Rant, Shore said he would love to "explore something in between 1460s and modern day" if he were to approach "Dracula Untold" again because he could just do something with many parts of history within Europe that have yet to be seen with a Dracula film.
