`Quantum` loses theatre count in North America, is ahead of `Casino Royale`

08-Dec-2008 • Quantum Of Solace

As had been expected, the 22nd James Bond film lost some of its screens this weekend in North America as the box-office crowds around 007 in the top ten.

On its fourth weekend in the USA and Canada, "Quantum of Solace" was #5 in the box office and dipped to 3,423 engagements - down from its peak of 3,501 the previous weekend.

"Quantum" is still enjoying more screens than its predecessor "Casino Royale", which only had 3,161 after the same time on release back in 2006.

The combination of the record opening for Daniel Craig's second outing as 007, and a higher theatre count, means that "Quantum" is outperforming "Casino" - $151,468,000 versus $129,020,082 according to studio estimates for this weekend's box office.

"Quantum" crossed the $150m barrier in North America after 24 days on release, compared to
the 43 days that "Casino" needed.

"Quantum" now only needs an additional $17m to surpass "Casino" totals from North America.
