Spectre, the 24th film in the 007 franchise, has been on release around the world for several weeks, and its stylish opening credits are now available to view in HD online.
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. It ended up grossing $17 million less domestically opening weekend than Skyfall despite opening better in most international territories over the past two weeks.
This evening it has been confirmed that SPECTRE, the 24th movie in the James Bond franchise, has opened with a record breaking week in the UK, besting any other opening in U.K. history, and achieving a significantly larger opening than 2012’s Skyfall.
Sam Mendes follows up the perfect Bond movie with an impressive but unremarkable new adventure.
