While it has yet to premiere in North America, No Time to Die has already earned $119.1 million in 54 markets in its international debut and has become the first Hollywood film to cross $100 million in its overseas launch without China during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As reported by THR, the 25th James Bond film earned $11.4 million in the U.K. and Ireland on Saturday, earning it the records of the highest box office single day for any Bond film and the highest single-day earnings for any movie in the pandemic era.
It is expected to also achieve the “third-biggest weekend of the Bond franchise with $34.8 million, and the sixth-biggest for any film.”
No Time to Die has been a huge success in IMAX as well, as it set the best opening weekend for a Bond film in 24 countries and was the best pandemic-era opening in 21 markets, including the U.K., Hong Kong, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, and Norway.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which earned $13.8 million in its international debut in Russia only, also broke a pandemic record with a $90.1 million opening in North America. In its third weekend internationally, Dune earned another $13.7 million to surpass $100 million overall.
No Time to Die will premiere in North America on October 8 and will be the fifth and final film starring Daniel Craig as James Bond. In 2022, the search for the next James Bond will begin.
