No Time To Die

After a series of lengthy delays on account of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Daniel Craig-starring No Time To Die is on pace for a huge opening weekend at the international box office.

Deadline reports that Craig’s fifth and final James Bond film is set to debut with $112.9 million at the international box office, making it the first pandemic-era Hollywood film to debut with over $100 million globally, without the added benefit of China’s massive market. 

No Time To Die also scored the best pandemic-era IMAX gross thus far on Thursday in 14 markets, including the UK, Germany and Hong Kong, as well as the biggest IMAX opening day of the Bond franchise in nine markets.

Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the film will open in North America on October 6 and eventually in China on October 29.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Craig will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The 53-year-old British actor will be honored during a ceremony this coming Wednesday, just days before the U.S. premiere of No Time To Die.

“Daniel Craig is a British cultural icon, as is James Bond, the man he has portrayed in five 007 films,” Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to place his terrazzo Walk of Fame star next to the star of another famed actor who also portrayed James Bond, Roger Moore. Fans will be thrilled when they see that their stars are appropriately located at 7007 Hollywood Boulevard.”
