Audiences made “Pan” walk the box office gangplank over the weekend with the big-budget movie opening to a dismal $15.5 million behind holdovers “The Martian” and “Hotel Transylvania 2,” according to Sunday estimates.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara and Garrett Hedlund, the live-action, $150 million Peter Pan prequel failed to grab the family audience away “Transylvania Hotel 2,” which finished second with about $20 million to bring its three-week total to nearly $117 million.

“The Martian,” starring Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars, lost only a third of its audience in the second week to lead the box office with a strong $37 million, boosting the overall take for the Ridley Scott-directed film to nearly $109 million.
