Last week, there was a genuine sense of hopeful optimism thatcould become the first pandemic-era release , with screenings sold out all across the country and more showtimes being added to meet the unprecedented demand.
Even as recently as a few days ago there was widespread belief the $90 million record set by Venom: Let There Be Carnage was in real danger, with Daniel Craig’s final outing as 007on home soil. While No Time to Die is on course for a solid haul, the numbers are still coming in below early projections.

As per, the 25th installment in the iconic franchise is on track for a $60 million first frame, bang in the middle of MGM’s modest $55-65 million prediction, but much lower than many analysts were expecting. Of course, the 163-minute length means it won’t be getting screened anywhere near as often as the 97-minute Let There Be Carnage, so it’s hardly a shock either.
That’s still good enough to rank as one of the highest-grossing debuts since the beginning of 2020, behind only the Venom sequel, Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Fast & Furious 9 and Bad Boys for Life, so No Time to Die is a hit whichever way you want to look at it, even if the numbers are coming up on the low end of the scale.
