The annual turn towards the strange and paranormal takes place in October at movie theaters.. this year a kid-themed scare and a ghost story held high spots in the box, while a spy story gained a second place finish to the weekend..
While some envisioned THE MARTIAN keeping its number one slot, GOOSEBUMPS ruined that, having a strong weekend starting with Friday and having amazing social media presence of people who saw it.. the red planet drama will end at second place..
BRIDGE OF SPIES was geared towards older audiences, but still managed to haul in enough to be the third film this week..
Guillermo del Toro’s flick CRIMSON PEAK started strong Friday but had a major percentage drop each night after, ending the weekend a weak fourth place.
Meanwhile.. GOOSEBUMPS at first with a potential $24 mil+ weekend..
