01-Nov-2021 • No Time To Die
Hopes were not high this weekend at the US box-office as audience numbers were expected to be lower than usual due to Halloween landing on a Sunday and many planning parties. That was proven true as the haul of the top ten films dropped down to $60m combined, compared to recent weeks of $100m takes. The lack of general attendance hobbled many new releases this weekend, with none of the newcomers able to break the hold of the old top three.
'No Time To Die' kept its spot at #3 behind 'Dune' and 'Halloween Kills' with $7.8m on its fourth weekend with a 36.5% drop. It managed to keep 3,507 screens, down just 300 from last week.
The US total now stands at $133.2m. With mid-week takings expected to fall below the $1m per day level this week, and further competition from new releases, it is unlikely the film will do much better than a $150m total.
