It's no wonder Gone Girl is No. 1 again this weekend. Everyone, including actor Ben Affleck's ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez, is seeing this one!

So if you haven't seen it, join J.lo and kick up those feet. This psychological thriller about a man turned into a possible murder suspect after his wife goes missing is sweeping the box office with an impressive $26.8 million in its second weekend.

With a full frontal Ben Affleck scene, his wife Jennifer Garner even joked about how a wide lens was needed for it.

Coming in second, Dracula Untold made about $23.4 million in its first opening weekend. The action/drama and fantasy film had an estimated budget of about $100 million. Luke Evans plays Vlad Tepes, who makes a deal with supernatural forces as he sets out to protect the kingdom and his family in this dark tale -- and yes, vampires do attack. This is the first big-budget solo Dracula movie since Dracula 2000.

Garner is competing with her husband this weekend as she stars in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Grossing an estimated $18.6 million in its opening weekend, Steve Carell and the A-list actress make for a funny duo in this family film. We've all had that "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day," and so this Disney film is both relatable and enjoyable.

This is a film to get everyone in the Halloween spirit.
