According to The Hollywood Reporter, the international box office success for Casino Royale continued throughout the first February weekend.
Daniel Craig’s debut James Bond film took in an estimated $6 million from 1,780 screens in 44 markets, lifting its international total to $416.8 million ($582.8 million worldwide). It took the fourth place overall for the weekend.
Of that total, China contributed an estimated $4 million for the weekend ($6.9 million since its opening on 30 January) from 468 screens. Sony is expecting Casino Royale to set a new overall record for a non-Chinese film in the country.
The film’s international total of $416.8 million makes it the 22nd highest grossing film internationally of all time. It is expected to pass by Spider-man 2‘s international total of $417.9 million sometime this week (if not already).
