SPECTRE Crosses $300 Million International Box Office

While in North America the box office for the latest James Bond blockbuster, SPECTRE, is lagging slightly behind Skyfall at the equivalent stage of release, in the rest of the world the Sam Mendes-directed film is breaking all sorts of records.


SPECTRE opened to  $73 million in North America over the weekend, the second-biggest opening for any Bond film, and one of the best US box office debuts this year. Skyfall made $88.4 million at the US box office in its first weeken in November 2012, though SPECTRE beat the openings of Casino Royale ($40.8 million) and Quantum of Solace ($67.5 million).

Overseas, SPECTRE amassed $117.8 million from 76 markets for a global weekend take of $190.8 million which means that its total gross to date has already crossed $300 million. It was number one in every territory where it has opened.

SPECTRE outperformed Skyfall‘s opening in Mexico ($4.5 million), Brazil ($2.9 million), Russia ($5.8 million), Hong Kong ($2.4 million) and Malaysia ($2.3 million). It opened to a massive $20.1 million in Germany — on par with Skyfall — nabbing the biggest Saturday of all time. SPECTRE has yet to open in China, Japan, Australia and France.
