Box Office Top 20: 'Pan' flops with $15.3 million

LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Pan" fared even worse than expected in its dismal 3,515-screen debut. The $150 million live-action Peter Pan origin story netted $15.3 million in its first days in theaters according to Rentrak reported actuals on Monday. Sunday estimates had the film at a slightly better $15.5 million.

The disinterest in "Pan" surprised both Warner Bros. and box office trackers, who had expected it to open at least in the $20 million range. Sony's high-wire spectacle "The Walk" also proved to be wobbly in its first weekend in wide release, earning only $3.7 million from over 2,500 locations.

Instead, audiences kept crowd-pleaser "The Martian" and the family-friendly "Hotel Transylvania 2" afloat in the first and second place spots. "Steve Jobs," which played on four screens this weekend, also had reason to celebrate with its $130,380 per-screen average — a promising start as the biopic expands across the next two weeks.
