Weekend Box Office Report: October 30-November 1, 2015
The Martian still survives at #1!
Matt Damon's stranded astronaut continues to persevere, keeping THE MARTIAN on top at the box office with an estimated $11.4 million!
Now approaching $200 million domestic and passing $425 million worldwide, Ridley Scott's red planet thriller led the pack on a slow Halloween weekend as GOOSEBUMPS and Steven Spielberg's BRIDGE OF SPIES retained their second and third place positions from last week.
Opening behind it in fifth was the new Bradley Cooper chef comedy-drama BURNT (previously titled ADAM JONES) with $5 million. It's the second miss for the actor this year after Cameron Crowe's ALOHA started with $9.6 million in May, but he's still got AMERICAN SNIPER's $547 million worldwide finish as a feather in his cap.
Vin Diesel's action-fantasy THE LAST WITCH HUNTER moved to sixth with $4.7 million, a drop of 56% from its debut last week. PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSION placed seventh with $3.4 million, down 57% from its opening (the $5 million final entry in the series has made over $50 million worldwide). It's also the only straight horror offering in the Top 10 -- movie fans looking for hardcore frights for Halloween may have simply sought on-demand or streaming options.
Opening in eighth was OUR BRAND IS CRISIS with $3.4 million. The R-rated comedy-drama from director David Gordon Green marks the lowest opening ever for star Sandra Bullock, just two years after her double-whammy success of THE HEAT and GRAVITY. Perhaps audiences are already too exhausted with the country's political game for the movie's subject matter, and the 32% Rotten Tomatoes average from critics also probably didn't help.
Guillermo del Toro's R-rated Gothic tale CRIMSON PEAK was in ninth with $3.1 million, followed by STEVE JOBS at the bottom of the list. Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin's look at the Apple co-founder doesn't seem to be attracting word-of-mouth business, dropping 63% on its second weekend in wide release.
Outside the chart, THE INTERN and SICARIO slipped out of sight, and the new horror-comedy SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE lurched onto 1500 screens and collected $1.7 million (it also hits VOD in just a couple of weeks). Last week's DOA releases ROCK THE KASBAH and JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS fared even worse on their second weekends, dropping 76% and 78% respectively from their already-meager openings.
Next weekend has Daniel Craig's latest 007 mission SPECTRE (breaking box office records in its UK release this week with $63 million there already), along with computer-animated Charlie Brown and Snoopy in THE PEANUTS MOVIE. Limited releases include the Bryan Cranston blacklist drama TRUMBO and the church scandal SPOTLIGHT.
