The box-office duo of James Bond and Charlie Brown again dominated North American movie theaters, while Angelina Jolie Pitt's By the Sea caused barely a ripple. Spectre, the 24th Bond installment and last week's top film, took in $35.4 million in its second weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. Craig's fourth Bond film has most flexed its muscles abroad, where it grossed $48 million in its China debut; USA Today notes that it's still lagging far behind Skyfall, which had taken in $160.9 million at this point in its release.

The Peanuts Movie held in second place with $24.2 million. The Christmas comedy Love the Coopers fared the best of the new releases, taking in $8.4 million. The Chilean miner drama The 33 earned $5.8 million. But the poorly reviewed By the Sea, starring Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt, had its release scaled back to 10 theaters, where it made only $95,440.
