on November 11, 2015

Spectre grossed $7.32 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a fifth consecutive day. The latest installment of Sony and MGM's James Bond franchise was up 38 percent over Monday's performance. Daily percentage increases were especially strong in general on Tuesday thanks in part to the eve of the Veterans Day holiday. Spectre has grossed a solid, but unspectacular $83.04 million in five days. That places Spectre a significant 24 percent behind the $109.11 million five-day start of 2012's Skyfall and 10 percent ahead of the $75.71 million five-day take of Quantum of Solace.
The Peanuts Movie held steady in second place with $3.05 million. The 3D computer animated adaptation from Fox and Blue Sky was up a very strong 76 percent over Monday. Family films experienced especially strong daily percentage increases yesterday. The Peanuts Movie is on the verge of reaching the $50 million domestic mark with a healthy five-day start of $49.00 million. The film is running 14 percent behind the $56.75 million five-day take of 2012's Wreck-It Ralph and a slim 1 percent behind the $49.45 million five-day start of 2007's Alvin and the Chipmunks.
Fellow Fox release The Martian took in $1.05 million to remain in third. The blockbuster Ridley Scott directed 3D sci-fi film starring Matt Damon was up an impressive 70 percent over Monday and down just 29 percent from last Tuesday. The Martian has grossed $198.51 million in 40 days, which leaves the film just $1.49 million away from reaching the $200 million domestic milestone.
Disney and DreamWorks' Bridge of Spies continued to claim fourth place with $0.728 million. The critically acclaimed Steven Spielberg directed thriller starring Tom Hanks was up 53 percent over Monday and down 31 percent from last Tuesday. Bridge of Spies has grossed $55.93 million through 26 days, which gives the film a current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 3.64 to 1.
On the platform front, Open Road's Spotlight took in $33,370 for the day, while Fox Searchlight's Brooklyn took in $22,536. Both awards seasons hopefuls are currently playing in 5 locations, which gave Spotlight and Brooklyn respective daily per-location averages of $6,674 and $4,507. Spotlight has grossed $363,487 in five days, while Brooklyn has taken in $289,462 in seven days. Both films will expand into additional locations this coming Friday.
