Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic has failed to impress at the North American box office, taking just $7.3 million in its first general week of release.

The film, for which Michael Fassbender has been tipped for a best actor Oscar, entered the chart at number seven.

Ridley Scott’s The Martian reclaimed the top spot taking $15.9 million.

Elsewhere, Jem and the Holograms made one of the worst debuts of all time for a major studio release opening in over 2,000 locations with just $1.3 million.
