Turning into a watercooler sensation, David Fincher’s Gone Girl easily stayed at No. 1 in its second weekend, trumping a flood of new films with $26.8 million from 3,284 theaters. The adult thriller, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, fell a scant 29 percent.

The film’s stellar hold puts the big screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s popular novel on track to become Fincher’s top-grossing film in North America, not accounting for inflation. His best showing to date is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button ($127.5 million). Through Sunday, its 10th day in release, Gone Girl’s domestic total is $78.3 million for 20th Century Fox and New Regency.

“David Fincher has crafted a provocative thriller about marriage that has clearly touched a nerve with audiences,” Fox domestic distribution chief Chris Aronson said. “It’s pretty exciting.”

Gone Girl also continued to soar overseas, earning $27 million from 52 markets for a foreign total of $63.3 million and world haul of $141.6 million.

Universal and Legendary Pictures’ origins pic Dracula Untold, fueled by males (57 percent), came in No. 2 with $23.5 million from 2,889 theaters.
