The latest James Bond film “Spectre” is breaking records in the British box office, Sony Pictures Entertainment said on Wednesday.
The film starring Daniel Craig as secret agent 007 took $9.2 million in its first complete day in what Sony said was the biggest Tuesday ever in movie-going history in Britain. The amount was also bigger than the first-day U.K. gross for the last Bond film, “Skyfall,” in 2012, the studio said in a statement.
“Skyfalll” went to take in $1.1 billion at worldwide box offices, easily recouping its estimated $200 million funding.
“Spectre,” which had its world premiere in London on Monday night, has won good reviews from film critics and is due to open in North America and a lot of the remainder of the world on Nov. 6.
