Ridley Scott’s latest release, The Martian rocketed to the top of the box office charts in the US this weekend with $55 million, according to studio estimates.
So far the movie has passed $100 million worldwide already, though that successful launch wasn’t quite enough to send it beyond what Gravity made from it’s October opening.
The charts stayed fairly similar except for a couple of big movers. Hotel Transylvania 2, dislodged from its top spot after one week, fell to second with $33 million and drama Sicario was one of the more impressive performers this weekend, shooting up from 10th to third place with $15 million to date.
The Intern fell from second to fourth, taking in $11.6 million along the way, while Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials rounded up the top five with $7.6 million.
