No Time to Wait: Box Office Boffo for James Bond Preview Night with $6.3 Million


After the longest wait in history– almost two years — “No Time to Die” landed in theaters on Thursday night for previews. (There were some on Wednesday as well.)

Box office was boffo as expected after record breaking numbers in the UK and Europe. The US total last night was $6.3 million.

All signs point to a big weekend. IMAX rooms and Dolby theaters have strong advance sales already, more than regular theaters. But “No Time to Die” is eminently watchable on all screens.
