Matt Damon’s The Martian is the top dog once again in domestic box office totals, beating out newcomers Burnt, Our Brand is Crisis, and Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.
Ridley Scott’s latest film earned $11.4 million, bringing its U.S. domestic total to $182 million, with a worldwide total of $428 million.
Jack Black’s Goosebumps and Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies claimed the 2nd and 3rd spots respectively. Goosebumps brought in $10.2 million, and Spies nabbed $8 million. Both films have made back their production budget. Hopefully, this begins a nice, long career for newcomer Spielberg.
Bradley Cooper’s Burnt and Sandra Bullock’s Our Brand is Crisis underperformed. Burnt earned an estimated $5 million, coming in at 5th while Crisis grabbed $3.4 million. But Scout’s Guide couldn’t take advantage of the holiday crowd, barely scraping together $1 million.
In terms of films that will be potential Oscar contenders this year, Steve Jobs continues to struggle, earning $2.3 million, bringing its domestic cume to $14.5 million, against a $30 million production budget. On a more positive note, the Emily Blunt-led Sicario earned $1.2 million, bringing its domestic total to $42 million.
Stay tuned, as next week, based on Spectre’s great overseas numbers from its early release, the film is set to overtake The Martian of the top spot. The latest James Bond film has been released in six territories so far, and has earned $80.1 million, including a 7-day release of $63 million, breaking Skyfall’s record from 2012, and that film went on to earn $1 billion worldwide.
