Spectre Once Again Seizes the Day

A supersized Spectre surrounded movie theaters this weekend, as a suave spy continued to crush the competition in the most debonair manner. The cast of The Peanuts Movie, while hardly sophisticated, packed them in once again while The 33 miners packed into those dark, drafty mines finally saw the (movie) light. The celestial lights were shining on The Martian, whose head was still in the clouds while the rest of him drifted successfully through the cinematic solar system. Traveling the entertainment globe (and ending up at the local movie theater), moviegoers embraced a multi-generation, misguided clan while pondering the question;  can we truly Love the Coopers, the dysfunctional brood taking up emotional as well as literal space at this year’s holiday dinner table?

Lovable and loathsome characters creatively combined, mine workers and martian dwellers found their way out of the deep, dark space while Bond and Brown made for unlikely but likable competitors.

Who made for the most likable of companions for you this (almost) holiday weekend?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:

  1. Spectre $35.4 million.
  2. The Peanuts Movie $24.2 million.
  3. Love the Coopers $8.4 million.
  4. The Martian $6.73 million.
  5. The 33 $5.85 million.
