on October 29, 2015
Fox reports that The Martian claimed first place yet again on Wednesday with $1.25 million, off just 20.5 percent from last week. That gives the hit blockbuster film a domestic tally of $170.2 million as it continues to enjoy strong word of mouth deep into its theatrical run.
Bridge of Spies pulled $1.11 million in second place on Wednesday, down just 16.5 percent from last week. The well-received Spielberg-Hanks historical drama has taken in $36.1 million domestically.
Goosebumps added $0.696 million yesterday, down 26 percent from last Wednesday. The adaptation's domestic total stands at a healthy $46.2 million through 13 days of play.
The Last Witch Hunter grabbed $0.66 million yesterday in its sixth day of release, giving it a disappointing total of $13.2 million so far.
The nationwide expansion of Steve Jobs continues to leave something to be desired. The well-reviewed film earned $0.49 million on Wednesday, giving it an overall total so far of $11.5 million.
Meanwhile, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension grossed $0.43 million in its sixth day of release. The horror franchise finale has tallied an underwhelming $9.7 million at the box office as part of Paramount's experimental release strategy.
