By Matt O'Bryant
What's up guys and gals,
Welcome back to our Weekend Box Office Report here @ECMG!
Taking the top spot this weekend was the latest James Bond installment Spectre bringing in a cool $73 million. While Daniel Craig's fourth outing as Bond came up short of Skyfall's monster $88.3 million opening back in 2012 the film is still a mega head crossing $300 million internationally after just two weeks of release.
Another classic character hitting the big screen this weekend was Charlie Brown in The Peanuts Movie taking second place with $45 million. While Charlie Brown is no newcomer to the big screen, it is the first time Charlie Brown and company has been seen in the 3D animation style we are so used to nowadays.
Matt Damon's The Martian continues to bring in strong numbers with another $9.3 million to claim third place. The Ridley Scott-directed film has now made $197.1 million domestically.
Coming in fourth place this weekend was Jack Black's Goosebumps movie bringing in another $7 million for a domestic total of $66.4 million after four weeks of release.
Finally rounding out the top five is the Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg Cold War Drama Bridge of Spies taking in another $6 million. The film has now earned a surprising $55 million domestically.
