Bond Helps Secure Box Office Rebound
LOS ANGELES (AP) — James Bond and Charlie Brown? Not exactly the pair you'd call on to save the world. But they were enough of a dynamic duo to reverse the recent Hollywood box office slide. The latest James Bond film brought in the adults while "The Peanuts Movie" catered to the kiddies — and that helped right the movie industry's ship — for the weekend, anyway. "Spectre" took in $73 million to take the top spot at the box office. The Daniel Craig film is the second-biggest Bond opening of all time. The first-ever movie featuring the Peanuts gang finished second with $45 million. Holdover movies "The Martian," ''Goosebumps," and "Bridge of Spies" rounded out the top five.
