'Crimson Peak' debuted in second place.

The Martian stayed on top of the Russian box office for a second weekend in a row, followed by Crimson Peak.

Ridley Scott's sci-fi drama added 235 million rubles ($3.7 million) to its gross, according to data from the research company Movie Research.

Crimson Peak debuted in second place, grossing 157.6 million rubles ($2.5 million).

It was followed by The Walk, which took in 139.7 million rubles ($2.2 million) in its first weekend in theaters.

Pan slipped two positions down to fourth place, adding 71 million rubles ($1.1 million) to its gross.

The local movie Rodina (Motherland) was in fifth place, with a gross of 25.1 million rubles ($399,000). The box-office figures for this $7 million drama came as a major disappointment for the producers.

All of director Pyotr Buslov's previous features turned in a profit in theaters, and his 2011 movie Vysotski. Spasibo chto zhivoi (Vysotsky. Grateful to be Alive), a biopic on 1970s Russian singer Vladimir Vysotsky, was the year's seventh-highest-grossing movie and the highest grossing local one.

No other local movie made the top 10 this past weekend.
