So did I. Probable eon pr or some insider leaking info and the reporter/stenographer “forgot” about currency exchange


Eon (or Sony) purposely mislead reporters about the cost of casino royale, leaked the total of 70million gbpound budget knowing it would be misreported, the talking point it was supporting was brosnan was too greedy and CR is back to basics with a sensible budget, some places still have/had the wrong numbers for that budget (the numbers.com?)
Truth was CR cost more the DAD.

Interesting the the bo mojo 8 day vs with no time vs spectre 8 day total is $75 million to $105,
I forgot how poorly Specter really preformed and I didn’t realize the totals now have 400 some odd days counted
From the email leaks I think they needed 1 billion to break even for spectre , I think , probably got there eventually with Home video and other sales


I think the no time to die decline even without covid was on the way to the bond franchise , as happened with dc and Star Wars , but those franchises I have a speed slightly faster than a glacier. Babs was stuck in her own world ignoring the most excited people have gotten about bond since 2012 were recast and reboot rumors.

Halloween is 'killing' it this weekend, with a better than expected box office of $50 million+, while No Time to Die is seeing a second weekend of $24.4M, down -56% from last week.

No surprise, when you basically off the franchise.

With 41% of Venom 2's offshore footprint released, the film captured the No. 1 spot in 39 markets and is outpacing No Time To Die by 34%.

NTTD: USA in 10 days total is only $99,509,477. In 2 weekends here it failed to top $100 million. At $99.5 million domestic, it lags the 10-day totals for “Spectre” ($129 million) and “Skyfall” ($161 million). It faces “Dune” next week with some overlap in audience. The overseas totals are still too high for this junk. I hope to see a steep drop off going forward with limited repeat theatre viewings by the masses once their curiosity factor has waned.

This is very deep dive on Box Office. I think you all will enjoy. Barbara's dumpster fire got beat by a B Movie slasher film that was also streamming on Peacock.

Our "friends" at MI 6 spinning their asses off abt the #dumpsterfire. While not spinning Box Office for EON, their "Moderating" aka deleting posts by 007 fans who don't engage in group think. Next, they will be burning books, probably Fleming's.

Par for the course Jason, MI6 holds enough water for EON to fill the English channel and their aggressive "moderating" as you so eloquently put it is the reason many members migrated here over the years.

Ridley Scott's The Last Duel is having a tough old time at the box office. Partly my fault, as I haven't seen it, but it's sad to see a director as talented as Scott fall so hard.

NTTD's weekend numbers were officially lowered to $23,792,118 as it dropped 57% and its Monday numbers dropped a whopping 65% here in the USA. It is not looking good here for Broccoli and her sidekick MGW. The rest of the planet should follow this lead as well. :Happy:

Jason, the Bond Argonaut, that is their modus operandi. I left there in 2007 as they shill for the EON house.

Mi6 past and present were always this way. Kind of hard to deny even with covid as an excuse there was a problem with the bond franchise at least as far as the wider audience was concerned

They will blame, the new 007. Bond dying, the delay,
IMHO the truth is the audience was off Craig and this take on bond 2015 but this is the first movie since then were the audience can show it by not buying a ticket

No Time to Die earned $3.579 million on its third Friday, dropping 50% and setting itself up for around a $12 million (-50%) third-weekend gross. That’ll give the movie a $120 million 17-day cume, with expectations now lowered to $155 million instead of $185 million for a domestic finish...........the threshold will keep lowering as the rubbish spreads negative word of mouth.

It's day 17 of NTTD's North American release and it's so far grossed $120,041,599 (estimated). For comparison, here are the day 17 cumes for the last few Bond films. These are all unadjusted figures, which makes NTTD look somewhat better. Even so:

SPECTRE - $154,146,608
Skyfall - $214,291,699
Quantum of Solace - $141,418,534
Casino Royale - $115,876,024
Die Another Day - $120,207,399

In other words, NTTD's tracking is comparable to that of Bond films made 15-20 years ago. Again, unadjusted for inflation. (Source: The Numbers).

No it is not. If unadjusted, then it did worse, as the prior numbers would be quite higher now. Value of $115 million from 2006 to 2021:
$115 million in 2006 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $156.48 million today. $120 million in 2002 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $182.97 million today. So, adjusted for inflation, it is well below both CR and DAD after 17 days and ridiculously below SF and Sp-ech-tre.
