The Martian Blasts off with $55 million Opening Weekend



Ridley Scott's space flick, The Martian, debuted just shy of Gravity's $55.8 million for the biggest opening in October.  Though, numbers may change tomorrow when the final tally is released for the weekend.  Overseas, it also grossed a big $45.2 million, marking it's worldwide total at $100.2 million.  The Martian also marks, Ridley Scott's biggest opening since 2001's Hannibal ($58 million).

In other news, Hotel Transylvania 2 slipped to a strong second place ($33 million) and is now Sony's biggest film of the year with a domestic total of $90.5 million.  Yes, Sony, has not had a film gross over $100 million yet, in 2015.  Surprisingly, their top 3 films (Hotel Transylvania 2, Pixels, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2) all involve Adam Sandler in a way.

In other, other news, Sicario opened to a respectable $12.1 million, which should have some decent legs since it's reviews are very strong.  Then again, not all critically acclaimed movies do well at the box office.
