SPECTRE Is Already Breaking Records at the UK Box Office
Following a sensational $6.4 million opening in the U.K. on Monday night, Spectre is presently exceeding its record-breaking precursor Skyfall at the U.K. box office.
On Wednesday, it was announced that the 24th Bond film had accumulated $9.2 million on its first full day in movie theaters, the largest Tuesday total of ever in the U.K. and larger than Skyfall‘s first-day total three years ago. From Sony and MGM, Spectre kicked off in the U.K. more than a week just before its Nov. 6 launch in North America.
Together with the serious supposition over who will be designated the next Bond after Daniel Craig— who hasn’t yet validated whether he’ll come back– and the film’s narrative, much of the discourse involving Spectre had been over if it could exceed Skyfall, which ended up being the highest-grossing 007 of ever in 2012, with $1.1 billion in global ticket sales.
Skyfall administered a $32.3 million opening weekend in the U.K. in October 2012, pulverizing numerous records at the time, including the Saturday attendance record, along with putting up the No. 2 opening weekend in history, behind Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2.
The U.K. outcomes after a just a night and a day imply that Spectre is certainly on course to accomplish a Bond assignment many said would be too formidable.
Spectre (2015) is the twenty-fourth James Bond film produced by Eon Productions. It features Daniel Craig in his fourth performance as James Bond, and Christoph Waltz as Ernst Stavro Blofeld, with the film marking the character’s re-introduction into the series. It was directed by Sam Mendes as his second James Bond film following Skyfall, and was written by John Logan, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Jez Butterworth. It is distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) and Columbia Pictures. With a budget of $300 million, it is tied with Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End as the second most expensive film ever made.
