After a stunning opening weekend performance, No Time To Die has reportedly broken box office records both at home in the UK and abroad.
Boasting, Metro reports, an £87.7million ($119.1m) international opening in 54 countries, citing Variety, it says this makes the latest James Bond outing – and Daniel Craig’s last as the spy – an overseas pandemic-era record-holder, and that’s without a release in China or the US, which is set for October 8.
It’s also the first film to cross the $100m (£73.7m) threshold without the boost of a Chinese release, although the film was screened in Hong Kong.
After 18 months of delays due to Covid-19, it appears Bond is reigniting the box office just as the industry hoped.
It’s reported that more than 30,000 people bought tickets for midnight screenings of the film on Wednesday 29 September, with 1.6m tickets sold overall in the UK and Ireland during the first four days of the film’s release.
