08-Nov-2021 • No Time To Die
With another £2m added to its total of now £89.9m in its sixth weekend on release in the UK, 'No Time To Die' has surpassed the British box-office total of £88.7m ($122.1m) held by 'Avengers: Endgame.' It makes it the fifth highest-grossing film at the UK box office ever.
Although the film will not be hitting VOD rentals in the UK like it is in the USA this week, it is unlikely that 'No Time To Die's stellar success in the UK will catch that of 'Skyfall's £103.2m total. The online release cannot be far away though, as the DVD & Bluray date has been confirmed to be December 20th for the UK, so there are only a few weeks left for the film to earn its rental money.
The film has now earned $524.3m internationally. This weekend added $27.2m from 72 markets, of which $11.3m came from China. The IMAX total now stands at $42.3m, making it the premium format's #2 release of the year.
Highlights for Bond included the regular favourites: Germany only dropped 26% week-on-week to a total of $67.7m, The Netherlands crested $20.1m to become the 7th biggest title ever, and Russia's haul grew to $12.1m to become the biggest Bond ever there. France ($30m) and Japan ($21.7m) are two of the top five markets.
The only major market left to open is Australia, which comes this weekend.
