The Martian soared to first place at the US box office this weekend taking in an estimated $55 million. It fell just below what Gravity done in its opening weekend back in 2013 ($55.7 million) but could still beat it if the film has a stronger Sunday then expected. This is a triumph for all involved and the film deserves this fantastic opening.
In second was Hotel Transylvania 2 only dropping 32% from last weekend making an estimated $33 million.
In third was Sicario getting a nation wide release this weekend after being in a limited run of theatres the past couple of weeks. Sicario made an estimated $12 million.
In fourth was The Intern, dropping down 2 spots from last weekend making an estimated $11.6 million. And rounding out the top 5 was Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials making an estimated $7.6 million.
- The Martian- $55 million.
- Hotel Transylvania 2- $33 million.
- Sicario- $12 million.
- The Intern- $11.6 million.
- Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials- $7.6 million.
So how did I go in my predictions??? Well I got a 5/5 :D. Every single position right, finally I triumph again!
