We have some interesting results in this weekend’s box office as the new James Bond film No Time to Die continues to do well overseas but domestically it was a bit of a disappointment. Daniel Craig’s final time as OO7 has broken the $313M internationally, but here in the U.S., the film opened on the lower end of expectations coming in at only $56M according to Deadline.
How does that compare to the previous films? Quantum of Solace opened for $67.5M, Spectre for $70.4M and Skyfall for $88.3M. One of the things that might be going against the film is the excessive run time of almost three hours, meaning less number of screenings a theater can do, unlike Venom: Let There Be Carnage at 97 minutes which was able to bring in $32M even with the a big tent pole movie opening against it.
This movie is clearly NOT going to earn back its production costs… Bond may finally be dead after all.
