Spectre was a distant second with German earnings of $3 million (€2.8 million) this past weekend, but it was still sufficient to keep the new Bond in contention.

Holiday horror film Krampus was the best new entry, with a $650,000 (€600,000) first weekend take, good enough for fourth place, behind Pixar's The Good Dinosaur, which earned a further $930,000 (€860,000) in its third outing in the territory.

Steven Spielberg's Berlin-set Bridge of Spies continues to draw German audiences, earning a further $628,000 (€580,000) over the weekend to bring its total take to around $1.6 million.
