1. 'Quantum of Solace' Could Pull In $25 Million+ On US Opening Day

    Both Sony Pictures and various box office trackers had high hopes for the US debut of Quantum of Solace and it looks like James Bond isn’t planning on letting them down any time soon.

    According to Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood Daily blog, Daniel Craig’s second 007 film could pull in $25-28 million today alone in the US.

    According to an unnamed source from a rival studio, ‘right now it looks like Quantum of Solace could do $25M-26M today. They did approximately $2M last night in midnight shows, so they could do $28M by end of today. That could translate into a $70M weekend.’

    Which would absolutely shatter the expectations of a $50-60 million opening weekend and soar past Die Another Day‘s record $47.1 million opening weekend.

    As a point of reference, the opening day total for Craig’s Casino Royale in the US was $14.7 million.

    Keep in mind that these box office numbers are estimates and are yet to be confirmed. Much more Bond box office news will be coming in throughout this weekend. Keep your browsers pointed to for the most up-to-date and complete coverage.
