Daniel Craig starrer, “Spectre” or Steve Martino directed “Peanut” have been doing quite well since the time of their release. But who won the box office battle? Let’s find out.
Eon Production’s twenty-fourth installment in James Bond series got released on Oct. 26, 2015. The movie was lauded by critics and audiences for its high sequence actions, stunt work and cinematography. While on the other hand, the magic of Snoopy and Charlie Brown in “Peanut” worked excellently on the box office. The movie hit the screens on Oct. 19, 2015, and received much positive response from the movie critics and love from the audience.
According to Yahoo’s box office report, the two films have maintained their position of highest grosser in the second week also. “Spectre” has so far managed to collect $35.4 million in its second week while “Peanut” has $24.2 million to its account.
Talking about the new releases, the Christmas comedy “Love the Coopers” fared the best. It is a family holiday gathering directed by Jessie Nelson and starring an ensemble including Diane Keaton and Alan Arkin. It collected $8.4 million for CBS Films. While, Warner Bros.’ Chilean miner drama, “The 33,” did a $5.8 million business in its opening week.
Although, Brad Pitt and Jolie-Pitt marital drama, “By the Sea” failed to impress audiences and ended up with a collection of only $95,440. On the other hand, Tom McCarthy’s acclaimed “Spotlight,” pulled in $1.4 million with a per-screen average of $23,307 for Open Road Films.
Till now, “Spectre” and “Peanut” are a clear winner of the box office but upcoming movies like Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2,” could give a tough fight to both.
But facts show that “Spectre” is the highest gross even in the second week and we are seriously don’t see Daniel Craig’s magic to fade away so soon from theatres and, of course, audience’s mind.
