“Spectre” Dominates Friday Box Office, “The Peanuts Movie” Follows

Narrowly shy of that posted by 2012 predecessor “Skyfall,” the opening day tally still comfortably positioned “Spectre” atop the US’ Friday box office.

The latest Bond film earned $28.0 million on opening day, which more than doubled the tally posted by the day’s nearest competitor.

“The Peanuts Movie,” that competitor, garnered $12.1 million in Friday receipts.

The aforementioned “Skyfall” opened with $30.5 million on its first Friday (+$2.2 million in Thursday screenings). It had ultimately grossed $90.6 million by the end of its first weekend.

As far as this Friday goes, the closest competition for the new “Spectre” and “Peanuts” was “The Martian.” Last week’s champion added $2.6 million to its haul.

“Bridge of Spies” (#4, $1.8 million) and “Goosebumps” (#5, $1.7 million) completed the day’s TOp 5.
