A lonely Martian entered the cinaplexes to do battle with vampire Sandler. Who won the week?
* Finishing first this week was Goosebumps with $23.5M in its opening weekend. Though it isn’t going to break any box office records, this is a nice number. With decent reviews, this one could have legs.
* Coming in second this week was The Martian grossing $21.5M in its third weekend. This is an amazing third week number, and I am excited that such a quality movie is seeing such strong ticket sales.
* Number three this week was Bridge of Spies, finishing with $15.4M in its debut weekend. This is an incredibly disappointing number for a Spielberg film; especially one with such good reviews.
*Pulling in at #4 this week was Crimson Peak with $12.9M in its opening week. This is a huge flop. The Guillermo Del Toro scarefest was not cheap like other horror entries; costing $55M in production costs!
* Rounding out the top five this week was Hotel Transylvania 2 in its 4th weekend with $12.3M. The Sandler stinker continues to leverage the deal with the devil crafted to make this movie a success…
