Hollywood Box Office Runners-up: ‘Peanuts’ and ‘Spotlight’ places after ‘Spectre’
The iconic characters, James Bond and Charlie Brown, took over the entire Hollywood Box Office with the release of “Spectre” and the “Peanuts” movie. The movie bowed before the box office this weekend and it proved as the biggest openings this weekend.
According to Box Office Mojo, the 24th installment of the James Bond film series, “Spectre,” topped the box office, grossing over $35.4 million within fourteen days of its release in the U.S. The “Peanuts” movie,which earned $24 million in the second week of its release, was the first runner-up after “Spectre.” October was seen as a month of flop films and disappointments in the Hollywood industry. Well, November can claim two box office successes apart from the fact that Sony’s movie, “Spectre,” had faced a lot of negative reviews from the critics.
“Peanuts,” released by the 20th Century Box, had faced positive remarks from the critics and safely made its second place after “Spectre” on the list. It had remained sturdy at the second place even for the second week where it earned $24.2 million on the box office. “Peanuts” is an American 3D computer-animated comedy film which had earned $44 million in the first weekend of its release.
According to Fortune.com, both the movies, “Spectre” and “Peanuts,” have covered up for the disappointments that were faced in October, which led to a release of a series of lowest grossing movies of the year. After the top two movies, the spot of second runner up was taken over by the science-fiction thriller, “The Martian,” directed by Ridley Scott. It stood firm by $9.3 million in its sixth weekend on the box office.
There were also some of those films which were released limitedly over the weekend. Among them, “The Spotlight,” brought in more than $300,000 in the weekend and gave the film the average gross of $60,455. November seems to be a good month for Hollywood as it has given out the major hits in the starting of the month. Let’s see what happens when the final installment of the Hunger Games franchise releases on November 20.
