LOS ANGELES, United States—The new James Bond movie “Spectre” stayed atop the North American box office in its second week in theaters, bringing in $33.7 million, industry figures showed Monday.

The star-studded spy thriller—with Daniel Craig as the dashing secret agent, Italian beauty Monica Bellucci and Oscar-winning Austrian star Christoph Waltz as the villain—has taken in $129 million in its first two weeks. It was among the most anticipated films of the year.


Computer-animated 3D cartoon “The Peanuts Movie”—the first big screen rendering in 35 years for the beloved comic book characters—sold $24 million in tickets to stay in second place in its second week, box office tracker Exhibitor Relations said. Its two-week total was $82.3 million.


The comedy “Love the Coopers”—about a four-generation Christmas Eve family celebration that turns wacky and ultimately touching—debuted in third place with $8.3 million.

Fourth place went to “The Martian,” which has generated serious Oscar buzz for lead actor Matt Damon, who plays a NASA scientist accidentally left on the Red Planet.

“The Martian” solidified its blockbuster status with $6.7 million in weekend ticket sales, for a whopping $207.4 million in the seven weeks since its release

“The 33,” about 33 Chilean miners trapped 700 meters underground for 69 days in 2010, debuted in fifth place with a take of $5.8 million. It stars Antonio Banderas and Juliette Binoche.

The rest of the top 10 were:

  1. “Goosebumps” ($4.6 million)
  2. “Bridge of Spies” ($4.27 million)
  3. “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” ($2.4 million)
  4. “Hotel Transylvania 2” ($2.4 million)
  5. “The Last Witch Hunter” ($1.48 million)
