No time to die, Daniel Craig’s latest James Bond, broke UK box office records.
During its opening weekend, the film grossed more money than any other Bond film in history and has already become the biggest film of the year.
No time to die has also broken international records for a film since the start of the pandemic, totaling $ 119million (£ 88million) across 54 different territories.
This makes it the first Hollywood image to surpass $ 100million (£ 73million) since the start of the pandemic.
In the UK and Ireland, No time to die, which has been delayed since last April, has brought in around £ 26million over four days.
Therefore, No time to die has so far become a greater commercial success than the two Fall from the sky and Spectrum, the two most significant launches in franchise history.
It also received the biggest theatrical release ever in the UK with 772 different theaters showing the film over 9,000 times a day.
The film is yet to be released in the two biggest cinema markets: the United States, where it is releasing this week, and China, where it is scheduled for release on October 28.
No time to die, which is the longest-running film in the Bond series, received overwhelmingly positive reviews, although The independent‘s Clarisse Loughrey called it “disappointing” and “anti-climate”.
