Weekend Box Office Report November 6 – 8: Spectre Scores Big

Two big films hit the big screen this weekend, and luckily for the industry they gave a sluggish box office a bounce back.

Spectre, the latest James Bond film, alone brought in over $73 million in its opening weekend, nearly topping the combined total of the previous week’s box office haul.

The Peanuts Movie wasn’t terribly far behind, taking the number two spot with a respectable $45 million.

The Martian, which had been #1 for four of its first five weeks, slid to the number three spot with $9.3 million, bringing its total domestic amount to roughly $197,067,346 through six weeks.

Here’s how the top 10 fared:

  1. Spectre (Sony) – $73,000,000 [N – 1]
  2. The Peanuts Movie (Fox) – $45,000,000 [N – 1]
  3. The Martian (Fox) – $9,300,000 [1 – 6]
