Weekend Box-Office: James Bond Movie NO TIME TO DIE Scores Slightly Disappointing $56 Million Debut

Weekend Box-Office: James Bond Movie NO TIME TO DIE Scores Slightly Disappointing $56 Million Debut

With no other major debuts this weekend, "No Time to Die" predictably topped the charts over the weekend, but fell slightly below expectations. The film was originally slated to hit theaters in April 2020.

Read more about the weekend box-office after the jump.

After 18 months of delays and date changes, the latest installment in the James Bond franchise, "No Time to Die" finally opened in theaters and grossed $56 million from 4,407 locations. The disappointment came from pundits predicting a $60-$70 million debut, or in extreme cases some expected a debut north of $100 million. Regardless, it's still the fifth-largest opening weekend in the pandemic era, and the fourth-highest debut of any Bond movie, behind "Skyfall" ($88.4M), "Spectre" ($70.4M) and "Quantum of Solace" ($67.5M).

After two weeks in theaters, "No Time to Die" also grossed a total of $257.3 million overseas. Overall, the film has grossed a total of $313.3 million worldwide. That might sound like a big number, but really the film is still far from making a profit due to its huge $250 million production budget and around $150 million spent to market the film worldwide.

Last week's #1 movie, "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" stepped back to second place with $32 million. That's a 64.5% drop from its record-breaking debut. The film's domestic total has reached $141.7 million, while overseas it has grossed $43.9 million.

The animated sequel "The Addams Family 2" finished in third place with $10 million, which brings the film's domestic tally to $31.1 million, while overseas it has earned $4.6 million.

Disney's "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" dropped 31% from last week and landed in fourth place with $4.2 million. After six weeks, the film has grossed $212.4 million in North America, and another $189.1 million overseas.

The Top 5 is rounded out by the Sopranos prequel "The Many Saints of Newark" with $1.5 million. The film continues to struggle, dropping a massive 68.8% from an already terrible debut, and its domestic total now stands at $7.4 million. It also grossed $2.9 million internationally.

A surprise entry in the Top 10 is A24's "Lamb", a surreal R-rated indie film starring Noomi Rapace, which opened in seventh place with $1 million from 583 theaters.
