In the firt day full day of screenings, on tuesday, Spectre sets a record in the UK, gaining almost 9.2 million $. It must be added to the 6.5 million $ the film earned on the first night on Monday, totaling almost 16 million $ so far, and only in the UK.
The James Bond franchise gained almost 2 billion $ during the 53 years of the franchise, thanks to the 23 movies before SPECTRE. Half of these earnings came from the last movie, Skyfall, 1.1 billion dollars at the box office.
The challenge for SPECTRE is to be able to top the previous outing. Will it succeed? Certainly the start is promising.
