Latest James Bond Film Pulls In More Than $300 Million At Global Box Office

“No Time to Die,” the latest installment in the James Bond film franchise, earned $56 million U.S. at the North American box office over the weekend and has pulled in $313.3 million U.S. in international markets.

While some box office analysts projected the film could top $100 million U.S. during its debut weekend in the U.S. and Canada, the latest James Bond film’s opening numbers are still a solid performance for the pandemic era.

No Time to Die’s domestic opening weekend marked the fourth-best debut of any James Bond film in the franchise’s nearly 60-year history.

Heading into its opening weekend, “No Time to Die” was outperforming advanced ticket sales expectations. Fandango reported last week that the film was outpacing presales for “Venom: Let There Be Carnage.” The “Venom” sequel holds the pandemic record for the highest opening weekend box office tally.

The audience for James Bond films tends to be older. Nearly 60% of moviegoers who turned up to see the movie over the weekend were over 35 years old and 36% of ticket buyers were older than age 45.

Older audiences have been slower to return to movie theatres in the wake of the pandemic, leading to smaller box office hauls for films that cater to older generations of filmgoers.

About 25% of ticket buyers who went out to see “No Time to Die” this weekend noted that this was their first time returning to theaters in more than 18 months, according to box office tracking.
