Box Office: SPECTRE remains in first place over slow pre-Thanksgiving weekend

After the second biggest opening for a Bond movie, SPECTRE, starring Daniel Craig and Christoph Waltz, dropped 50% for an estimated $35.4 million in its second weekend, also the second best for the franchise as it has grossed $130.8 million domestically after ten days. SPECTRE also opened in the lucrative Chinese market this weekend with $48.2 million, which is the biggest opening for a 2D US film in China. It has already grossed a good percentage of Skyfall‘s total China gross of $59 million.

The 25th installment of MGM Studios and Sony Pictures‘ James Bond franchise SPECTRE, once again starring Daniel Craig as 007 and directed by Sam Mendes from Skyfall, opened with an estimated $73 million in its first weekend in 3,929 theaters or $18,580 per theater. Co-starring Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Ralph Fiennes, Monica Bellucci, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris, it grossed $28 million on Friday including $5.4 million in Thursday previews, which was already down from the $30 million grossed opening day for the previous installment, 2012’s Skyfall.
