Ghostbusters debuts at #2

It looks like those negative pre-release comments about the film may have taken a toll. The all-female reboot took second place at the box office behind The Secret Life of Pets (which is in its second week).

Did anyone here see it this weekend? Any wild and unfounded theories you want to throw out? Are the Hollywood bean counters right and female-led movies just don’t gross as much money? Or were audiences just not willing to put any money down to see a reboot of a beloved classic? Or a little of both?
