Spectre Easily Takes the Top at the Box Office

The latest installment in the James Bond franchise, Spectre, easily dominated the box office this weekend.  It raked in $73 million for first place, beating out a strong debut from The Peanuts Movie ($45 million) and also helping this weekend to become the biggest weekend since early July.

Despite taking the top spot, Spectre's debut is significantly behind Skyfall's $88.4 million.  This is probably due to it's less than stellar reviews compared to Skyfall (64% Tomatometer vs 93% Tomatometer). In fact, it is the lowest reviewed Bond film of the Daniel Craig era, just dipping below Quantum of Solace's 65% Tomatometer.  Perhaps the silver lining is that it has already grossed more than $300 million worldwide.

In other news, The Peanuts Movie had a solid debut with $45 million, which was aided by solid reviews (86% Tomatometer), zero competition, and the upcoming Holiday Season.
