After being delayed for more than a year, the James Bond movie No Time To Die opens this weekend in 50+ markets around the world ahead of its US debut, and it is expected to generate a good amount of money, at least by pandemic-era standards.

According to Deadline, No Time to Die could make around $90 million from its international debut this weekend. That much money would be a "big win," according to Deadline. For comparison, it would be ahead of F9, which made $69.5 million during its opening weekend internationally earlier this year.

Spectre ($123.5 million) and Skyfall ($109.2 million) made more money for their opening weekends in international markets, but there was no pandemic when those movies arrived.

No Time To Die's international rollout includes releases in Korea, the UK, Brazil, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, and Spain. The movie was delayed in Australia to November 11 due to the ongoing pandemic. No Time To Die opens in the US and Canada on October 8, with a release in China slated for October 29.

No Time To Die is Daniel Craig's fifth and final 007 movie, with a new actor coming in to play the British superspy when the series inevitably continues in the future. This next Bond movie will be the first under Amazon, which acquired MGM for $8.45 billion earlier this year.

In other news, Craig recently said he wants to see better parts for women and people of color instead of casting a woman as James Bond in the next movie. "There should simply be better parts for women and actors of color. Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?" he said.
