hen the dust settled it was Ridley Scott's "The Martian" in first place, adding $15.9 million to the Fox release's impressive $166.4 million domestic haul.The exhibitors will receive a cut of digital revenues in return for allowing the studio to release the latest "Paranormal Activity" electronically 17 days after the movie leaves most theaters.Paramount is pointing to "Paranormal's" strong results in circuits like AMC, where it was the top grossing film for the weekend, as evidence that audiences didn't stay away because they could see the film digitally early.That barely beat the $6.7 million that Ashton Kutcher's critically excoriated "Jobs" made in its initial weekend.Ultimately the buzz didn't translate into box office, and making it unlikely that "Steve Jobs" will earn back its $30 million budget and millions more in marketing costs.That wasn't even good enough to crack the top ten and mark the lowest openings for studio films released in at least 2,000 theaters.In the art house world, Focus Features debuted historical drama "Suffragette" in four locations where it made $77,000 for a per-screen average of $19,250, while Broad Green fielded the Sarah Silverman drama "I Smile Back" in two locations to $16,036, for a per-screen average of $8,018 .
