Goosebumps tops box office
GOOSEBUMPS, based on spooky children's books by R. L. Stine, shot straight to the top of the North American box office over the weekend, estimates out on Sunday showed.
Sony's action-comedy pulled in US$23.5 million (S$32.5 million) in box office revenue on Friday to Sunday on its debut in Canada and the United States, tracker Exhibitor Relations said.
The children's flick knocked space movie The Martian - which brought in US$21.5 million in its third week in theatres - off top spot.
Another new entry was in at No. 3 - Steven Spielberg's Bridge Of Spies starring Tom Hanks, with US$15.4 million.
