Fox's The Martian claimed first place on Monday with $1.15 million. The blockbuster Ridley Scott directed 3D sci-fi film starring Matt Damon was down 69 percent from Sunday and down a very slim 5 percent from last Monday. The Martian continues to receive an added boost this week from its ongoing one-week IMAX run. The 32-day total for The Martian stands at an impressive $184.27 million. The film is currently running 16 percent ahead of the $159.10 million last year's Interstellar had grossed after 32 days of wide release and 16 percent behind the $218.89 million 32-day take of 2013's Gravity.

Disney and DreamWorks' Bridge of Spies took second place with $0.773 million. The critically acclaimed Steven Spielberg directed thriller starring Tom Hanks declined 67 percent from Sunday and just 21 percent from last Monday. Bridge of Spies has grossed a very solid $46.31 million in 18 days. That places the film 19 percent behind the $57.21 million 18-day gross of 2004's The Terminal.

Goosebumps placed in third with $0.675 million. The 3D horror comedy from Sony starring Jack Black fell 81 percent from Sunday and only 12 percent from last Monday. Goosebumps has grossed $57.44 million in 18 days, which places the film 31 percent ahead of the $43.91 million 18-day take of last year's Ouija. Goosebumps will soon face new competition for family audiences when Fox's The Peanuts Movie enters the marketplace on Friday.

Burnt followed in fourth place with $0.528 million. The Bradley Cooper led dramedy from The Weinstein Company was down 63 percent from Sunday's performance. Burnt has grossed a disappointing $5.53 million in four days. That places the film a discouraging 47 percent behind the $10.52 million four-day start of Aloha earlier this year (which was a very soft performer in its own right).

The Last Witch Hunter rounded out Monday's top five with $0.483 million. The Vin Diesel led action film from Lionsgate decreased 71 percent from Sunday and a solid 38 percent from last Monday. The Last Witch Hunter has grossed a softer than expected $19.51 million in eleven days and is running a lackluster 38.5 percent behind the $31.73 million eleven-day haul of 2013's Riddick.

Meanwhile, Warner's Our Brand Is Crisis and Paramount's Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse continued their very disappointing starts with respective day takes of $293,414 and $180,052. Both films are performing below their already low expectations, as Our Brand Is Crisis has grossed just $3.53 million in four days, while Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse has only managed an even softer four-day take of $2.02 million.
