'Spectre' Wins Big at Weekend Box Office With $73 Million!

Daniel Craig‘s new James Bond flick Spectre opened domestically to a whopping $73 million this weekend, taking the top spot!

According to THR, the movie is now the second-biggest opening for the spy franchise (missing Skyfall‘s $88.4 million domestic debut), bringing in over $300 million worldwide so far.

Coming in at No. 2 was The Peanuts Movie, earning a solid $45 million, which coincided with the 65th anniversary of the comic strip and the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Taking the third position was Matt Damon‘s The Martian, which continued to do well with an additional $9.3 million, for a domestic total of $197.1 million.

Rounding out the top five were Goosebumps and Bridge of Spies, which grossed $7 million and $6.1 million, respectively.

Meanwhile, at the specialty box office, Michael Keaton‘s Spotlight earned $302,276 from five theaters for a location average of $60,545.

Saoirse Ronan‘s new film Brooklyn brought in a solid $237,389 for a location average of $47,478.

Bryan Cranston‘s Trumbo debuted to $77,229 for a location average of $15,445.

    Nothing strange about Spectre winning at the BO. The two films I look forward to are Spotlight and Brooklyn. Both will probably compete for Best Picture during awards season.
