James Bond “Spectre” came in at $70.2 million, not $73 million as reported yesterday.
Sony’s actual totals were considerably off base. Whoops! And that’s not great news considering it’s almost $20 million less than the opening weekend for “Skyfall.”
“Spectre” is now more in line with pre-“Skyfall” Bond movies.
What didn’t help: Daniel Craig bad mouthing the movie and the process before hand. And the theme song. Both of these incidents were buzzkill. Especially that dang song– no radio play for it in the US really hurt. LOA– Lack of Adele– did them in.
Again we are reminded, there is no such thing as a cinch.
