Latest Bond beats Skyfall and SPECTRE opening weekends.
Pent up demand for a new James Bond film saw No Time to Die earn £21 million over the weekend, putting it on £26 million for the four days since opening on Thursday.
So far it has opened in 54 geographical markets where it has taken $119 million, the first Hollywood film to break through $100 million overseas without China since the pandemic began. That compares with SPECTRE’s $123 million and Skyfall’s $109 million international openings.
This week sees the film open in the United States and other territories, while it arrives in Chinese cinemas on 29th October. It will be interesting to see if it continues to outperform over the next few weeks.
