SPECTRE is breaking yet more records, this time with the biggest opening weekend and biggest opening three days of all time for any 2D US film at the Chinese box office. With an estimated $48 million, it’s also only about $11 million off what Skyfall made during its entire China run.
SPECTRE also remained very firmly at the top of the North American box office in its second weekend by taking an estimated $35.4 million, which is only a 49.7% drop from its opening. It’s worth noting that the film didn’t really have a huge amount of competition in the US, and that next weekend will see the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, so is likely to see a much sharper drop then.
The latest Bond movie also overcame Jurassic World to become the top movie in the UK for 2015. This all means that worldwide, SPECTRE has nearly reached $550 million, and is well on its way towards Skyfall‘s $1.1 billion record for a Bond movie.
