Box Office: Sandra Bullock, Bradley Cooper Try to Scare Off ‘The Martian’ on Halloween Weekend.

LOS ANGELES – Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock plays a political spin doctor in satirical comedy “Our Brand is Crisis”, taking a look at the tactics of election campaigns.Although the pair attended Jennifer Aniston’s private wedding to Justin Theroux in August, this week’s premiere marked the couple’s first red-carpet appearance together.

The Hollywood actress portrays political strategist Jane Bodine, who is coaxed out of a self-imposed retirement to help boost the campaign of a Bolivian presidential candidate struggling in the election polls. “I think now the curtain has just been pulled back and everyone gets to see it. There won’t be much relief this weekend, as “Burnt” and “Our Brand of Crisis” are expected to deliver muted openings. “A lot of studios aren’t even releasing horror movies, because they’re not confident people will cancel their plans,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at “People are going to dress up and go out on Saturday. This is based on absolute reality.” Spurring Bodine’s decision is the opportunity to beat her rival, Pat Candy — played by fellow Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton — who is with the opposition. “The (film’s) message — yes politics as a backdrop but it is more about consequences, big business, how far is too far.

They’re not going to the movies.” That means that holdovers “The Martian” and “Goosebumps” will likely be in a neck and neck race for first place. When you start harming others for power and extreme wealth, eventually you have to get off the carousel,” Bullock said. “Who is going to grow a conscience and who is going to say enough money is enough money?

But, politics made a fun backdrop because it is so real and in your face.” Bullock’s “Gravity” co-star George Clooney is a producer on the film, which was directed by David Gordon Green, known for “Pineapple Express”. There’s a lot of financial partners on this one, including Participant Media, which limits the studio’s exposure should things not go according to plan. “Burnt,” a drama about a driven chef that features Bradley Cooper toiling over a hot stove, is looking at an opening of $7 million when it debuts across 2,900 theaters. Reviews have been weak, with critics handing it a 39% “rotten” rating, but Cooper’s star is on the rise after “American Sniper” dominated the box office earlier this year. Cooper previously played a chef on TV in the short-lived series “Kitchen Confidential.” And for the second weekend in a row, Paramount is trying to upend distribution models.

Both pictures are part of an experiment that allows Paramount to debut the films digitally 17 days after it leaves most theaters in return for cutting exhibitors like AMC in on a cut of the home entertainment revenue. That took a chunk out of “Paranormal Activity’s” box office last weekend, leaving it with $8.1 million, and it should depress ticket sales for “Scouts Guide” as well. In 2014, studios largely steered clear of the weekend, only offering up the Jake Gyllenhaal thriller “Nightcrawler” and the Nicole Kidman dud “Before I Go to Sleep.” The trio of new films should match the $12 million and change those pictures generated even if they won’t exactly set the world on fire.

The good news for the business is that the first weekend in November brings the James Bond sequel “Spectre” and “The Peanuts Movie,” and with them the promise of box office salvation.
