'Jem' Tanks At Box Office

There is not much cause for celebration at the box office this weekend. "Jem and the Holograms" became one of the worst debuts of all time for a major studio movie opening in over 2,000 locations with a truly outrageous $1.3 million.

Bill Murray's "Rock the Kasbah" barely did better, pulling in only $1.5 million. Vin Diesel's "The Last Witch Hunter" also tanked with $10.8 million.

But, while poor reviews might have sunk "Jem" and "Kasbah," good reviews couldn't save "Steve Jobs" either. After two very strong limited-release weekends, the biopic failed to impress in wide release with $7.3 million.

The weekend of duds left room for holdovers to take the top spots. In second place, "Goosebumps" earned $15.5 million, while "The Martian" reclaimed its throne in weekend four with $15.9 million.
