Spectre raked in $9.2 million on its first full day.
Spectre is the 24th movie in the Bond franchise and it is already breaking records in the UK. On its first full day, Spectre brought home a whopping $9.2 million which is the biggest box-office haul of all time in the UK on a Tuesday. The opening night in the UK, which was on Monday, took in $6.4 million. Spectre is all set to break the records Skyfall, its predecessor, made. Spectre was launched three years after Skyfall and it would seem that fans just couldn’t wait to line up outside theatres on the opening day. The latest movie in the Bond franchise was released a week earlier in the UK. Spectre is set to premier on the 6th November in the United States. Release date in Pakistan is the same as in the States.
An interesting fact about Spectre is that it will Daniel Craig’s last movie as James Bond himself. We are still uncertain as to whether Daniel Craig will actually leave the Bond franchise, but much speculation was owed to the question which is one of the reasons Spectre raked in big numbers. Fans and enthusiasts also wondered whether it will be able to break the records set by Skyfall. Well, that is settled now. Skyfall released in 2012 and became the highest-grossing Bond movie of all time. Global ticket sales amounted to a colossal $1.1 billion. The opening weekend commanded $32.3 million.
Given the numbers generated by Spectre, it would seem that the movie is on the right path to break all the previous records – those set by Skyfall and otherwise. If this movie actually turns out to Daniel Craig’s last, well, he sure would go out with a major bang.
