It has been six whole years since a James Bond movie was released – that film of course being Sam Mendes‘ Spectre – but this weekend, a twenty-fifth installment was released – No Time to Die, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga.
The film, which marks the end of Daniel Craig‘s tenure as the beloved spy earned an impressive $56 million at the box office this weekend, bringing the film’s total to a staggering $313.3 million, which is certainly no small feat, especially considering the circumstances. It seems everybody wants to see Craig’s final outing. Strong reviews, like this one from our own Joey Magidson, didn’t hurt.
Coming in second place is Venom: Let There Be Carnage, starring Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson, which earned a total of $32 million at the box office this weekend, slowing no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Meanwhile The Addams Family 2 brought in a weekend total of $10 million, despite the absence of some of the original animated film’s voice actors including Finn Wolfhard. Other top spots include Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings bringing in $4.2 million and The Many Saints of Newark, bringing in $1.45 million. Opening in limited release, with the third best per-screen average this weekend, was Fran Kranz‘s critically acclaimed Mass.
