More than 25 million of them come from the UK. Thus 007 guarantees the best Hollywood film debut since March 2020 without China – the film will not be shown on screens until the end of October. The film also set records in Belgium. The movie premiered on Thursday and immediately resulted in the best opening day of 2021 and the best September debut ever. After Friday, the meter’s income has already reached more than half a million euros. “This is the biggest success of the opening since the start of the pandemic,” Kinepolis spokeswoman Anneline van Tross confirmed. Last weekend, the shows were almost sold out.
James Bond still has a long way to go. The budget for No Time to Die is estimated at $250-300 million. In order to cover costs, the film would need a total of $1 billion. It remains to be seen if Daniel Craig will succeed. Previous Bond films – Skyfall and Specter – were good for $1 billion and $880 million, respectively. Pre-pandemic, yes. In China, one of the largest markets, the print edition will be released on October 29. And in the US, too, it will have to wait until Friday. Maybe they’ll give the sales numbers a big boost.
