Gone Girl has bested Dracula Untold in domestic weekend box office earnings despite the movie being available for the last two weeks.

Gone Girl claimed $26.8 million in the United States, edging out Dracula Untold which hauled in $23.5 million.

Led by big name actors including Ben Affleck and Neil Patrick Harris, the movie, which cost $60 million to produce, has now racked up $78.3 million in domestic box office.

What might be most impressive about Gone Girl is its staying power. While most movies suffer from a 40 percent to 50 percent fall off after week one, the movie only decreased box office sales by 29 percent.

Dracula Untold features a lesser known star in Luke Evans, and the movie was facing another horror movie, Annabelle, which was released the week prior to opening. The movie also debuted in 2014, a year in which fright flicks have underperformed. The movies biggest failure comes from its critics who delivered an incredibly low 26 percent rating on RottenTomatoes.com.

Despite bad reviews and a lesser known star, the movie actually won the international box office, edging out Gone Girl with a $33.9 million haul. Dracula Untold only cost $70 million to produce, which means it nearly broke even within its first three days of wide-release.

Finally falling out of the top 10 was Guardian of the Galaxy which remained in the top 10 for 2½ months.

Here were the weekends top five movies in the United States:

1. “Gone Girl”: $26.8 million ($78.3 million total)
2. “Dracula Untold”: $23.5 million (debut)
3. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”: $19.1 million (debut)
4. “Annabelle”: $16.4 million ($62.2 million total)
5. “The Judge”: $13.3 million (debut)

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day may be the biggest surprise, the movie failed to break $20 million despite a strong cast that includes Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner.
