WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Martian returned to the top of the chart with 15.9MM, as the weekend's new releases underperformed.  Ridley Scott & Co. dropped a mere 25 perecent, which is a leggy hold indeed for a fourth weekend. The Martian is likely already profitable and does not open in China until Nov. 25.  Goosebumps places with 15.5MM on an alright 34 percent drop; it will likely have to do a bit better overseas than here to profit in theaters.  Bridge of Spies shows again with 11.4MM on a leggy 26 percent drop. The Last Witch Hunter debuted in the fourth slot with 10.8MM against a reported 90MM budget; word is Lionsgate sold off much of their exposure on this seeming flop.  Hotel Transylvania 2 rounds out the Top 5with 9MM on a leggy 29 percent  drop in its fifth weekend. Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension opened in sixth with 8.25 million --which would normally be okay for the famously lo-budgeted franchis, but this one reportedly cost 10MM, so it's a good thing it's headed to video-on-demand in two weeks. Steve Jobs was expected to win the weekend but landed in seventh place with 7.3MM; even so, this may not hurt too bad against a 30MM budget.  New releases Rock the Kasbah and Jem and the Holograms opened in 13th and 15th place, respectively.
