James Bond did well, but not as well as Skyfall.
James Bond is back, but it appears he has lost some of his magic since Skyfall. While Spectre still took in a very respectable $73M, that is $15M less than Skyfall took in on its opening weekend. That being said, the film stands at $299M globally off of a $245M budget – although some reports peg it higher – so it’s still in good shape if not in profit yet.
2. The Peanuts Movie
The Peanuts Movie performed better than most expected taking in $45M in its debut weekend off of a $99M budget. The key here will be how much hold it has at the box office in the coming weeks.
3. The Martian
The Martian slipped into third place with $9.3M for a new domestic total of $197M off of its $108M budget. Globally it stands at $458.45M.
Goosebumps landed in fourth place with $6.96M. It now stands at $66.4M off of its $58M budget.
5. Bridge of Spies
Steven Spielberg’s latest film, Bridge of Spies, rounded out the top five with $6M for a new domestic total is $54.9M off of its $40M budget.
