3rd November 2015
Its been an interesting week in the UK with the release of the latest James Bond movie Spectre, most unusual of all is that the film got its release after its UK premiere on Monday night rather than the usual Friday.
This opening meant that its weekend figures, although fantastic, were not a true reflection of the usual take on a debut weekend.
To cut a long story short Spectre has done amazingly well, it has the largest UK opening of any film, beating Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban 10 year record by nearly double, it also has the biggest single day gross for any film in the UK, Tuesday and in fact Wednesday.
The films weekly take, from its opening on Monday through to Sunday was £41.3 million, not only the highest ever but also higher than the previous Bond outing Skyfall, which is the highest grossing film ever in the UK.
Its Friday to Sunday total is just shy of £20 million which puts it just behind Skyfall, but that film opened on a Friday, its hard not to believe that Spectre wouldn't have beaten all these figure had it opened on the traditional Friday.
Spectre thus makes its debut at the top of the UK box office with an incredible weekly gross and with no film daring to compete with it, it is also the only new entry on the box office this week, and with very few new film in the coming weeks it will stay a while.
All thats left now is for it to become the top grossing film ever in the UK, it needs over £102 million to achieve this, but with the debut it is entirely possible.
