LOS ANGELES (AP) - The bloody World War II drama "Fury" blew past "Gone Girl" at theaters this weekend.

"Gone Girl" was tops at the box office for two weeks before Brad Pitt and his rag-tag group of tank mates in "Fury" blasted the film to second place.

According to studio estimates Sunday, Sony's "Fury" captured $23.5 million in ticket sales during its opening weekend. Fox's "Gone Girl" followed with $17.8 million.

Two other new movies landed in the top five: The animated Fox feature "The Book of Life" opened in third place with $17 million; and Relativity's Nicholas Sparks romance "The Best of Me" debuted in fifth place with $10.2 million.

Disney's "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" placed fourth, dropping one spot since opening last weekend.
