‘Goosebumps’ goes fright to the top
LOS ANGELES — “Goosebumps” has scared off its competition to claim the top spot at the box office.
The familyfriendly horror film starring Jack Black as author R.L. Stine earned $23.5 million across the weekend, according to estimates on Sunday. It cost a reported $58 million to produce.
“Goosebumps” also managed to beat “The Martian” by a hair, pushing Ridley Scott’s adventure to the secondplace spot for the first time in its threeweek run with $21.5 million.
Steven Spielberg’s wellreceived Cold War thriller, “Bridge of Spies,” debuted in third place with $15.4 million.
Guillermo del Toro’s gothichorror romance film “Crimson Peak” opened in fourth place with $12.8 million. It’s one of del Toro’s lowest wide openings after 1997’s “Mimic,” which earned only $7.8 million in its first weekend in theaters.
