'SPECTRE' Box-Office Opening Weekends
By MI6 Staff
'SPECTRE' uniquely opened on a Monday in the United Kingdom, so its opening 'weekend' was actually a seven day period for the box-office, which in part explains its performance against 'Skyfall' which opened on a traditional Friday.
The figures below are collated from box-office reports from around the world. Not all countries report the opening weekend figures independently from the running bo-office total. Some figures are reported in millions, and these have been expanded to remain consistent with other data (for example, $2.5m = $2,500,000). An asterisk (*) denotes a box-office estimate.
Figures are updated periodically.
SPECTRE (2015) is the new James Bond film and the 24th in the series. It will be the fourth outing for Daniel Craig as 007, and the second film to be directed by Sam Mendes from a screenplay by John Logan, Neal Purvis & Robert Wade. The new MI6 team of Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Rory Kinnear (Tanner) and Ben Whishaw (Q) are all reprising their roles. The cast will include Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott and Christoph Waltz. Production commences on December 8th 2014, with location work as early as 5th January 2015 in Austria. The film will also shoot on location in: Erfoud and Tangier, Morocco; Rome, Italy and Mexico City, Mexico. SPECTRE is scheduled for release on 7th November 2015.
