The most recent James Bond film “Spectre” may be trailing behind it’s previous installment “Skyfall” (It made $70.4 million in its opening weekend as opposed to “Skyfall” and it’s $90.6 million debut), but that hasn’t stopped it from already netting $550 million worldwide within two weeks of it’s release. This was largely helped overseas with “Spectre” opening in China this weekend to $48 million. This is actually a new record for a non-3D U.S. film being released in China. In the US, the domestic box office for the film is currently $140 million.
So, thanks to recently earning a Guinness World Record for biggest explosion in a film, and coupled with it’s recent successes, it seems “Spectre”, while not at the level of “Skyfall”, is still leaving it’s mark.
