UPDATE :No Time to Die” Falls 69% from Last Friday, Trounced by “Halloween Kills”



“No Time to Die” was trounced by “Halloween Kills.” The latter horror film made three times as much as the Bond movie (on its second Friday) with $22 million vs. $7 million.



Last night was not a big celebration for James Bond.

“No Time to Die” made just $7.2 million, down 69% from last Friday’s $23.3 million. That’s a stunning week to week drop, meaning fans didn’t return to see it again. Even though James bought the farm. I’m a little surprised.

Now “No Time to Die” will likely fail to pass $100 million over the weekend. With $82 million all in, another $14 million (fingers crossed) tonight and tomorrow would only bring it to $96 million. If it gets that far.

Also, the Bond film may not finish in first place for a second week. That distinction may go to “Halloween Kills,” which already took Bond out in Thursday previews.
