The 25the James Bond released, No time to die which opened in a number of European and Asian markets last week, made its first bow to the United States last weekend.
Estimates drive the successful franchise and the final release of Daniel Craig as a British secret agent taking $ 56 million and just like in the UK he has the widest release of any film since the start of the pandemic in the United States.
That said, the film’s opening weekend was the lowest for the Bond franchise since Casino Royale.
No time to die ended up with a $ 56 million opening weekend in the United States.
The coming month in the United States is very competitive with Venom: let there be carnage is still playing after its monster $ 90 million opening last week and sits on $ 146 million on Sunday night for $ 32 million this weekend.
There has been a lot of talk about vaccination passports, or evidence of vaccination warrants affecting the box office, but in New York City, where this is so, it was actually the top market according to Deadline.
Outside of the United States, the film gained momentum with around $ 89.5 million coming worldwide this weekend for a total of $ 257 million coming from international markets alone.

In France, the film recorded the best opening weekend in ticket sales since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in 2019, selling 1.2 million tickets.
Admittedly, the film also runs after the same film for the same record in the opening week since 2019 in France.
In the UK, the film is expected to exceed $ 70million during Sunday (£ 51million) to become the world’s largest market for the film to date.
Germany would take second place (outside the United States) with $ 31 million, followed by the Nordic countries with $ 29 million.
Shang Chi: And The Legend Of The Ten Rings surpassed the $ 400 million mark worldwide this weekend with an additional $ 4.9 million added at the box office.
In China, the successful epic, The Battle of Changjin Lake continues to beat the local box office with $ 110 million in its second weekend (setting a record as 4e Best weekend ever).
He now leads like the 7e highest grossing film in Chinese cinema history at $ 639 million and is expected to reach $ 800-1 billion at current growth.
For all the analysts predicting that the Chinese box office could not survive without Hollywood imports, it seems that is not the case.
Next week will see a wealth of films released in many markets (including the UK), from by Ridley Scott The last duel of Walt disney, Venom: let there be carnage (United Kingdom) and Halloween kills.
October is sure to be the busiest time at the box office since the start of the “era” of the pandemic.
