This weekend saw the box office come back in a big way across the world and its probably the biggest weekend since the pandemic as the audience came back in numbers in many countries. This weekend probably put an end to debate of cinema vs streaming which has been going on for months in the West.

 

 

The UK box office which was in the doldrums came back in a big way as No Time To Die grossed around £25 million making it the biggest grosser post pandemic in the market in just four days. The Bond franchise is the biggest for UK and all the major theatre chains needed the film to put up numbers and that is exacltly what it did.

 

 

Skyfall in 2012 had a £20 million weekend in three days. Spectre in 2015 grossed £21 million in its first four days which were Mon - Thu and £41 million over the seven day period which included the real Fri - Sun weekend. This film did £20 million over the Fri - Sun period. Basically the collections are comparable to the last two Bond films despite coming after the pandemic and that is more than good enough for the present time.

 

 

The film not only scored in UK but the rest of Europe bought excellent results as well be it Germany, Switzerland, Holland or Austria. Wherever it released in Northern Europe it was simply outstanding. It will be a weekend in the region of $120 million for No Time To Die in Overseas markets without China. The US market will see a release next week.

 

 

North America also saw the best results post the pandemic as Venom: Let There be Carnage hit a weekend of $90 million apprx. There have been a few good opening weekends in the US but the box office has been held back with increasing covid infections but now with cases dropping the box office should forge ahead. 

 

 

Both these films No Time To Die and Venom: Let There Be Carnage have shown the importance of releasing films in the traditional way with theatres first and it will only get better from here as the pandemic becomes endemic across the world.
