The Martian is still sitting on top!

Matt Damon's drama on the red planet remained the biggest box office draw, keeping THE MARTIAN at #1 for a second weekend with an estimated $37 million!

The space survival thriller from director Ridley Scott dropped only 32% from its opening last week for a 10-day domestic total of $108.7 million (which is its approximate reported cost).

In second place once again was Adam Sandler's monster 'toon HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 2 with $20.3 million. The sequel has been doing solid business with a $116 million domestic total on its third weekend in theaters.

Opening in third was the new fantasy-adventure PAN with $15.5 million. Initially scheduled for a June release, the $150 million origin spin on J.M. Barrie's classic tale came from director Joe Wright (HANNA, PRIDE & PREJUDICE) and star Hugh Jackman. The PG spectacle didn't impress critics (23% on Rotten Tomatoes), while moviegoers gave it a 'B+' CinemaScore.

The Anne Hathaway/Robert De Niro comedy THE INTERN was in fourth with $8.6 million as it gets close to a $50 million domestic total. The Emily Blunt/Josh Brolin/Benicio Del Toro drug war thriller SICARIO came in fifth with $7.3 million, down 40% on its second weekend in wide release.

MAZE RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS was in sixth with $5.2 million. The young-adult post-apocalyptic thriller doesn't seem likely to reach the $102 million domestic finish of the first movie, but the sequel is now up to $239 million worldwide so far.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's high-wire act THE WALK expanded to wide release from its large-screen premiere and placed seventh with $3.6 million. The vertigo-inducing Robert Zemeckis film now has a $6.3 million domestic total (on a reported cost of $35 million).

Closing out the Top 10 was the Johnny Depp mobster drama BLACK MASS, followed by the mountain adventure EVEREST and M. Night Shyamalan's horror movie THE VISIT.

Outside the chart, WAR ROOM and THE PERFECT GUY disappeared while Pixar's INSIDE OUT has now passed $800 million worldwide. The limited release of STEVE JOBS earned a remarkable $130k per-screen average along with strong reviews (89% on Rotten Tomatoes) before it adds more screens next weekend. 

Next week has Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg collaborating again on the espionage thriller BRIDGE OF SPIES, director Guillermo del Toro opens his haunted house with CRIMSON PEAK, and Jack Black tries to frighten the kiddies in the big-screen version of R.L. Stine's GOOSEBUMPS.

Bad year for the Mara family, both sisters were in some major flops (although, Kate was also in the Martian, which is deserving of the praise).
I saw Sicario and The Walk, and both were very good movies. I recommend both. I thought I saw an ad that Steve Jobs wasn't going wide until the 23rd.

I saw "The Martian" on Friday. It is great to have Scott back after two flops. I was really rooting that "The Walk" would do better business. I love Zemeckis and Gordon-Levitt

Steve Jobs was incredible! Fantastic filmmaking and a fresh approach to the "biopic". Performances, directing, editing, cinematography and score all top notch!

Great for The Martian. Well deserved! LOL, as expected Pan was a box office bomb.

The Walk = The Flop

Great to see The Martian doing so well.

I loved it and am trying to convince the wife to come and see it with me again. She's not really into science but she she loves Disco!

Glad to see The Martian still going strong; it was terrific and am glad it is appealing to the masses. And I hope more people check out Sicario as well (my pick for best film of the year, thus far).

Martian is a mocie that after a few more viewings could crack my top 10 all time. I have seen it twice and it is just simply fantastic.

I feel bad for The Walk and Everest... the releasing strategy for these movies made their release dates really confusing and i think completely ruined their box office. 2 great movies that are lost in the market place due to poor a poor release strategy.

Everest was really good and am disappointed it's not doing as well as I thought it would have.
