Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film disappoints at US box office.

Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic has failed to impress at the North American box office, taking just $7.3m (4.8m) 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 $15.9m (10.4m).

The Steve Jobs biopic cost around $30m (19.5m) to make and has taken $9.98m (6.5m) to date, after two limited release weeks and one week on full release.

Co-starring Kate Winslet and Seth Rogen, the film is the most high-profile of half-a-dozen documentaries and films about the Apple founder since his death in 2011 and has generally received strong reviews.

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 $1.3m (850,000).
