After setting a new box office record for its opening weekend in the UK, the latest James Bond film ‘Quantum of Solace’ earned a more than respectable $67 million during its opening weekend in North America.
Although reviews have been mixed, with some hailing it as the best film in the spy flick’s history and others saying ‘Quantum’ is more Bourne than Bond, the 007 franchise is a blockbuster franchise that is as popular as ever.
Did you see the film on opening weekend? How did it compare with Casino Royale or the pre-Craig era Bond movies?
“Quantum of Solace,” with Daniel Craig returning as James Bond, easily made for the best opening weekend for the spy franchise, earning more than $67 million at the box office. The series’ first direct sequel opened with nearly $30 million more than its predecessor, 2006’s “Casino Royale.”
