Despite Weak U.S. Box Office, ‘No Time to Die’ is Hollywood’s Biggest Film of 2021


Despite Weak U.S. Box Office, ‘No Time to Die’ is Hollywood’s Biggest Film of 2021

 

Despite weaker than expected domestic box office, according to Deadline, the latest James Bond flick ‘No Time to Die‘ crossed $733M worldwide this weekend, making it the highest-grossing Hollywood film of 2021 — and of the pandemic era.

 

After topping $708M through last Sunday, and becoming the biggest Hollywood movie overseas in 2021 and throughout the pandemic, we’ve been expecting Mr. Bond to overtake the previous global leader, Universal’s own F9 ($725M WW cume and the only other studio movie to cross $700M this year). In total to date, Daniel Craig’s last turn as 007 has an estimated gross of $154M domestic and $579M at the international box office.

The Cary Joji Fukunaga-directed 25th Bond pic initially released in late September in most overseas markets; it then added North America, China and Australia in later weeks. On October 20, it became Hollywood’s No. 2 movie of 2021 globally and continued to hit new benchmarks, crossing $700M last weekend. Overall throughout its run, it scored the biggest pandemic opening weekend in 36 markets.

 

Kneon over at Clownfish TV was shocked and had this to say in response.
