SPECTRE topped the US box office this weekend after going on general release from Friday. The latest Bond film took a total of $73 million according to early estimates.
This figure corresponds to the range from the first forecasts before they were raised to the $80 million region. This is some way off the $88.4 million earned by Skyfall on its first weekend, despite opening on more screens. The other big film this weekend has been The Peanuts Movie, which is said to have impacted on SPECTRE’s take.
UPDATE: The weekend take dropped to $70.4 million when Sony reported the final take on Monday. Headline modified to take account of that.
