1. DAD breaks opening day box office record in the UK

    By Brett McAleer on 2002-11-23

    Forum member mattbowyer has reported the news from Ananova that Die Another Day has recorded the highest ever opening for a Bond movie in the UK.

    This early news indicates that Die Another Day should break records set by the last Bond movie, The World Is Not Enough, but the real test will be how well the movie survives the second week of release when word of mouth and media reactions start to influence the public at large.

    Hopefully by Monday we should have a breakdown of the weekend takes in both the UK and US so we can clearly see how Die Another day fairs against its competition for the box office dollar.

    Thanks to mattbowyer for posting the news and please feel free to make your comments on the matter in his thread in the Die Another Day forum.
