HOLLYWOOD—It was quite apparent that many people attended Halloween parties and did trick-or-treating instead of visiting the multiple this weekend. Even though several new releases like “Burnt” and “Our Brand Is Crisis” debuted, some previous flicks maintained the interest of moviegoers.
“The Martian” remained on top for the fifth time with an impressive $11.4 million. The space adventure is less than $20 million away from crossing the $200 million mark at that the domestic box-office. It was apparent some parents and their kids wanted goofy scares as “Goosebumps” remained in second place with an additional $10.2 million to its total. After three weeks, the book series which was adapted for the big screen has earned over $57 million.
Landing in third place is the Tom Hanks drama “Bridge of Spies” with $8.1 million. “Hotel Transylvania 2” is proving that sometimes the second chapter is better than the first, as the flick earned another $5.8 million to its total. After more than six weeks in theaters, the animated hit has not landed out of the top five at the box-office. Rounding out the top five was the Bradley Cooper drama “Burnt” with a dismal $5 million. Sandra Bullock didn’t have a great weekend either, as her flick “Our Brand is Crisis” opened with a paltry $3.4 million.
This weekend should see a boost in numbers as the next chapter in the Bond franchise “Spectre” arrives and animation returns with “The Peanuts Movie.”
