The new James Bond movie "Spectre" stayed atop the North American box office revenue tally in its second week in theaters, bringing in $35.

4 million, industry estimates showed Sunday.

The star-studded spy thriller -- with Daniel Craig as the dashing secret agent, Italian beauty Monica Bellucci and Oscar-winning Austrian star Christoph Waltz as the villain -- has taken in $130.7 million in its first two weeks. It was among the most anticipated films of the year.

Computer-animated 3D cartoon "The Peanuts Movie" -- the first big screen rendering in 35 years for the beloved comic book characters -- sold an estimated $24.2 million in tickets to stay in second place in its second week, box office tracker Exhibitor Relations said. Its two-week total was $82.5 million.

The comedy "Love the Coopers" -- about a four-generation Christmas Eve family celebration that turns wacky and ultimately touching -- debuted in third place with $8.4 million.

Fourth place went to "The Martian," which has generated serious Oscar buzz for lead actor Matt Damon, who plays a NASA scientist accidentally left on the Red Planet.

"The Martian" solidified its blockbuster status with an estimated $6.7 million in weekend ticket sales, for a whopping $207.4 million in the seven weeks since its release

"The 33", about 33 Chilean miners trapped 700 meters underground for 69 days in 2010, debuted in fifth place with a take of $5.8 million. It stars Antonio Banderas and Juliette Binoche.

The rest of the top 10 were:

6. "Goosebumps" ($4.7 million)

7. "Bridge of Spies" ($4.3 million)

8. "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" ($2.4 million)

9. "Hotel Transylvania 2" ($2.35 million)

10. "The Last Witch Hunter" ($1.5 million
