No Time to Die, the next film in the 007 franchise, could break the opening weekend for a Bond movie.
No Time to Die‘s April release date is quickly approaching but how much are people looking forward to Daniel Craig’s final appearance as James Bond? Well, according to Box Office Pro, quite a lot.
The box office experts predict that No Time to Die could earn a domestic opening weekend in the range of $75 – 100 million. The top end of this prediction could see it go past Skyfall’s $88 million, which would see No Time to Die grab the biggest Bond opening ever in the US.
Box Office Pro says: “Following the release of its first trailer, NTTD has generated strong online sentiment and engagement across major social media outlets relative to other adult-targeted franchises. Early metrics are comparable-to-higher than those of Mission: Impossible – Fallout and Hobbs & Shaw, while not far off from The Fate of the Furious.
“The four-and-a-half-year lapse since the previous Bond film (Spectre) has likely given the brand enough time to breath and allow anticipation among general audiences to brew again — not unlike the four-year gap between 2008’s Quantum of Solace and 2012’s Skyfall.”

Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
