No Time To Die Tops US Box Office Chart
The 25th James Bond movie fell short of box office predictions but was still the biggest movie in the US this weekend.
Eighteen months after its initial release date--and a week after it hit some international territories--the Bond movie No Time To Die finally arrived US theaters. The movie has made $56 million in its first three days.
This is a good result for any movie in the pandemic era, but it did fall short of estimations for the film. As Box Office Mojo reports, No Time To Die was predicted to open with $60-$70 million, with the previous movie, 2015's Spectre, making $70.4 million. Nevertheless, the movie is performing extremely well outside the US, with a $313.2 million gross to date. In addition, the film is yet to open in China, where the Bond series has traditionally performed extremely well.
Sony's Venom: Let There Be Carnage drops to No. 2, taking $32 million in its second weekend. The film opened with a hugely impressive $90.1 million last weekend and has so far taken $185.6 million worldwide. The Venom sequel is yet to open in some countries too, including the UK, where Bond continues to dominate the box office.
The Addams Family 2 fell to No. 3 in its second week, with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, The Many Saints of Newark, and Free Guy at No. 4, 5, and 6 respectively. The week's highest new entry was the Scandinavian folk horror drama Lamb at No. 7, which made $1 million on 583 screens.
This coming weekend will see the release of Halloween Kills, which will also debut on Peacock, and Ridley Scott's historical epic The Last Duel. Beyond that, Dune finally arrives on October 22.
