No Time to Die has become one of the top five largest domestic debuts of 2021.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the James Bond film earned a total of $56 million in 4,407 North American theaters over the weekend, which was on par with sales predictions. The pic pulled in $257.4 million overseas for a grand total of $313.3 million worldwide.

The long-awaited film, which is Daniel Craig’s last as Bond, was delayed three times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the industry was hoping No Time to Die would perform just as well as 2012’s Skyfall—which earned a record $88 million its domestic opening weekend—and 2015’s Spectre, which brought in $70 million, the Bond movie was a celebratory moment for theaters, as more and more moviegoers slowly return to cinemas, particularly the older adult demographic.

It’s anticipated that No Time to Die’s total sum for the second weekend will surpass the $100 million mark. The last time the box office saw such a notable return was during pre-COVID times, when January 2020’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Bad Boys for Life arrived. Rather than big openings, Bond films largely find success in multiples and usually see more success in overseas markets.

Marvel Studio’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage landed the No. 2 spot for the weekend, earning $32 million in its second weekend for a 10-day domestic total of $141.7 million.
