This battle for first place this weekend wound up not being much of one when it was all said and done, as none of the new releases made much of an impact. Here’s what went down:
Spectre managed to hold on to the top spot at the box office for a second weekend in a row, bringing in an estimated $33.9 million. That raises the film’s two-week total to $129.2 million. It’s not a bad number, but considering the production cost of Spectre is in the neighborhood of $300 million, it still has a serious way to go before it could be a profitable endeavour
As for the rest of the top five, The Peanuts Movie was in second place with $23.9 million. Love The Coopers could only managed a third place debut with a lackluster $8.4 million. The Martian was behind it in fourth place with $6.7 million,. That film’s total now sits at $207.4 million. Finally, new release The 33 closed things out in fifth place with a disappointing $5.6 million.
So, to recap, here were our predictions:
1) The Peanuts Movie – $30 million
2) Spectre – $29.5 million
3) Love The Coopers – $15 million
4) The 33 – $8 million
5) The Martian – $6.5 million
And here’s how the weekend is estimated to turn out:
1) Spectre – $33.9 million
2) The Peanuts Movie – $23.9 million
3) Love The Coopers – $8.4 million
4) The Martian – $6.7 million
5) The 33 – $5.6 million
