Though not as much of a cake walk as last week, Spectre, the latest James Bond installment, continued to hold off The Peanuts Movie to remain atop this weekend’s box office.

Peanuts was able to close the gap between it and Spectre this week to just over $11 million in comparison to last week when the gap was almost $30 million. The rest of the field lagged behind, as no other movie aside from the top two could manage eight figure receipts for the week.

Spectre’s $35.4 million take was less than half of last week’s big opening of $73 million, but it was enough to top The Peanuts Movie, which pulled in an additional $24.2 million compared to last week’s $45 million. Debuting at number three this week with a modest $8.4 million is the family comedy Love The Coopers, featuring an ensemble cast that includes Anthony Mackie, Diane Keaton, Ed Helms, John Goodman, and Olivia Wilde. Dropping down one notch from three to four this week and bringing in another $6.7 million is The Martian. And rounding out the top five is the drama, The 33, based on the true story of the 33 Chilean miners that drew the eyes of the world when they were trapped in an underground coal mine for over two months. The Antonio Banderas led film bowed at $5.6 million in its debut week in theaters.
