Box Office: ‘No Time To Die’ Spies $56M Stateside, $300M Worldwide

  1. No Time to Die (review)- $56M

When it comes to James Bond, the global numbers were always going to be what counted most, which is a good thing for Daniel Craig’s swan song, No Time to Die. The oft-delayed film opened with $56M domestically to top the charts, easily beating the second weekend of Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Even so, the number is below the $90M heights of Skyfall in 2012, and the $70M of Spectre in 2015. But, obviously, the situations are vastly different. Most importantly, the final run as 007 for Craig has hit $313M worldwide, and that’s without having opened in China.

2. Venom: Let There Be Carnage– $32M/$141.6M

Venom 2‘s second weekend drop of 64% was better than expected given the Bond competition. Sony/Marvel’s superhero sequel scored $32M for $141.6M domestic and a global cume of $185M.

3. The Addams Family 2– $10M/$31.1M

4. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings– $4.2M/$212.5M

Marvel’s Shang-Chi punched through the $400M worldwide mark like a pile of bricks.

5. The Many Saints of Newark– $1.45M/$7.4M

6. Free Guy– $1.3M/$119.7M

7. Lamb (review)- $1M

A24 dropped another dark, atmospheric horror on the masses with Lamb, an unusual film about a most peculiar farm animal. Opening in just 583 sites, it earned $1M which isn’t great. However, I’m not sure it ever could’ve expected to do much better than this given the secrecy surrounding the premise, the lack of star power, and a limited marketing campaign in order to main that shroud of mystery. This one will be discovered by the people it’s meant to.

8. Dear Evan Hansen– $1M/$13.7M

9. Candyman– $700K/$60M

10. Met Opera: Boris Godunov– $387K
