The top three spots were retained by the previous position holder at the box office. The 2015 Halloween weekend has a box office earning of only $74 million in total. The earnings proved to be the lowest at the box office in 2015 so far.
Even though ‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ starred A-lister Sandra Bullock it did not meet expectations. The film was about an American political strategist working on a Bolivian presidential election. The film is the worst release ever in Bullock’s career.
The film Our Brand Is Crisis only earned an estimated $3.4 million and placed at 8th on the box office record. ‘Burnt’ starring Bradley Cooper earned only $5 million over the weekend. The story revolves around a chef working to make his comeback in the culinary world. The film directed by John Wells was screened in 3,003 theaters.
‘Burnt’ was also one of the worst releases of Cooper’s career. Meanwhile the R-rated comedy ‘Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse’ didn’t even make the box office list. The film only earned $1.8 million while screening in 1,509 theaters.
The top three films of the last weekend remained on their places. The Martian retained its top spot on the box office and further earned $11.4 million over the weekend. While Goosebumps also raked in $10.2 million at the 2nd place on box office. The third place holder on the box office chart Bridge of Spies also earned a respectable $8.1 million.
