Daniel Craig’s fifth and final outing in the role of James Bond, “No Time to Die,” looks set to be either the biggest or second biggest opening weekend film of his run in the character.
The film has hit long-range tracking forecasts and Box-Office Pro reports that the movie is tracking to debut anywhere in the $75-100 million range for its opening weekend in the United States on April 10th.
Compared to previous Craig films, “Casino Royale” kicked off with $40.8 million, “Quantum of Solace” opened to $67.5 million, “Skyfall” started out with $88.3 million, and “Spectre” debuted with $70.4 million.
The ‘No Time’ opening would also easily be the biggest of the year to date, eclipsing “Bad Boys for Life” ($62.5M) and “Sonic the Hedgehog” ($58M), and ahead of other big titles in early tracking including “A Quiet Place Part II” ($60-80M Est.), Pixar’s “Onward” ($50-70M Est.), and Disney’s “Mulan” ($40-60M Est.).
The estimates come following singer Billie Eilish, her brother & music partner Finneas O’Connell and composer Hans Zimmer all performing the film’s theme at the Brit Awards this week.
