Interstellar shows with 29.2 million on a 39 percent drop.  The Nolan flick has grossed about 322 million worldwide,and probably needs 500 million to profit.  Beyond The Lights debuts in the fourth slot with 6.5 million; against a reported 7.2 million budget.  Gone Girl hangs onto the bottom of the Top 5, with another 4.6 million and 319 in worldwide receipts to date.
