    The state of Saxony in Germany goes into lockdown from monday on.
    So all theatres have to close. The same in some parts of Bavaria.

    So NTTD-figures in Germany will drop real fast now.
  • That should roll in this weekend.

    Just imagine if NTTD would’ve been released a week ago. Last year the release date was November 12.

    Just watched NTTD on PVOD on Amazon Prime in the UK... No subtitles at all for the French speaking parts, not even when I opted to turn them on. That's very shabby of them.

    EDIT: While I remember, I had the MGM gunbarrel, no Universal.

    What - you mean they literally had french spoken dialogue with no way for a non french speaker to understand what was being said? That’s truly incredible.
    Did they not translate the Italian sheep herder either ?

    Yup. Exactly that. I had to tell my Mum what was being said from memory which fortunately I could remember most of it.

    When I tried to put subtitles on there was only an option for closed caption which gave me subtitles for the sounds being made in the background.... But the pure English option should have had the subtitles built into it anyway.

    Good grief that is ridiculous.
    Hardly a good portent for Amazon’s custody of James Bond going forward…..

    That’s pretty bizarre. I’m in the US, and the PVOD available on Amazon had the burned in subtitles as shown in theaters.

    Must be a regional issue with the UK streamer.

    That's what I thought too... But it wasn't at all. It was kind of confusing... And as I say we had the MGM gunbarrel and not the Universal one which I thought we would have over here to match what we see in the cinema. Or is it different once it gets onto streaming?

    Universal has no stake on digital streaming, so their logo doesn’t show up. It might appear on blu-ray because Universal is distributing physical media, but we’ll see.

    A small detail but it kind of irritated me that the universal logo hadn’t fully disappeared off the left of the screen before the gunbarell dots started.

    On Amazon in Canada there was also a glitch with the subtitles. They showed up halfway through the film! Bond and M are talking by the river and suddenly the subtitles from the beginning of the film appeared. It was very bizarre.

    Refund possible? I would complain

    SF had a good word-of-mouth buzz going for it, too - lots of casuals and general public saw it because of that. Shame the film itself it was such a big drop in quality from QOS... ;)

    There's one thing both the Mendes entries have, that NTTD or QOS or CR don't have, is long boring tunnels of scenes we don't care about. Mendes managed to make action, like the Joker escape, or the alligators Casino scene, boring.

    QOS is trash compared to SF.

  • I prefer Quantum myself, sure it doesn't have the Academy Award winner director or cinematographer.. Or a completed script... It's the underdog ;)

    QOS cinematography actually does look great, at least when the editors allow the films to linger on them instead of constantly cutting away.

    I think the best experience I had visually with QOS was browsing this page for screen caps.

  • Good call! It is a shame about the editing, at least SF can breathe.

    Wow, better than expected....I was thinking a conservative $725m as of Sunday and it's $733m by Friday, meaning $740m+ by Sunday....wonder where it pulled in those good numbers? Oz and China?

    I have no idea. Australia and good legs almost everywhere. In China is slowing down a lot.

    Next week it will come out in Malaysia that will add another $5M.

    EDIT: Referring to my previous post... obviously NTTD is now the highest grossing Hollywood film of the pandemic era.

    I understand the complaints about the machine gun editing style (which I think isn't as irritating on a small screen), but criticisms of the script being a mess don't really fly with me. My theory is, if the fans weren't aware that Paul Haggis couldn't do another draft because of the WGA strike, no one would give a f*ck about the writing. The common consensus would probably be that it's brilliant, judging by the reactions to the SF and NTTD scripts, both of which are dumber than a box of rocks.

    I mean, at least the villain in QOS has a clear goal, strategy, and motivation.

    I don't dismiss QoS and Spectre altogether....especially the latter. There are several scenes I do like in Spectre (Bond/White, the pre-title, Bond/Hinx, esp the train fight, and the torture sequence). I don't mind rewatching those scenes every now and then...

    MGM/Eon/Universal’s No Time To Die is crossing $733M worldwide this weekend, making it the highest grossing Hollywood film of 2021 — and of the pandemic era. After topping $708M through last Sunday, and becoming the biggest Hollywood movie overseas in 2021 and throughout the pandemic, we’ve been expecting Mr Bond to overtake the previous global leader, Universal’s own F9 ($725M WW cume and the only other studio movie to cross $700M this year). In total to date, Daniel Craig’s last turn as 007 has an estimated gross of $154M domestic and $579M at the international box office.

    The Cary Joji Fukunaga-directed 25th Bond installment initially released in late September in most overseas markets; it then added North America, China and Australia in later weeks. On October 20, it became Hollywood’s No. 2 movie of 2021 globally and continued to hit new benchmarks, crossing $700M last weekend. Overall throughout its run, it scored the biggest pandemic opening weekend in 36 markets.

    No Time To Die is released internationally via Universal, and domestically through MGM’s United Artists Releasing banner.

    Today, Michael De Luca, Chairman of MGM’s film group, and Pamela Abdy, MGM Film Group President, commented: “We are so thrilled to see audiences returning to theaters across the world and for their ongoing support of the theatrical experience. After a long delay, we are especially gratified to know No Time To Die has entertained so many moviegoers the world over. Along with our partners at Eon, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, all of us at MGM are grateful to the teams at Universal Pictures, United Artists Releasing, and in our own MGM territories for their tremendous efforts to cross this great milestone with No Time To Die. This achievement is a testament to Daniel Craig and the entire cast, as well as our director Cary Fukunaga, producers Michael and Barbara, and the crew for making an incredible film. We extend our thanks to our exhibitor and promotional partners for remaining steadfast in their support of the film.”

    Overseas currently accounts for 79% of the global total, and highlights include the UK which is the lead offshore play at $128M. NTTD is the fifth biggest movie of all time in the market and the top movie of the pandemic (reaching that mark in its first four days of release).

    In Germany ($72M cume to date), NTTD held No. 1 for six weeks and is Universal’s top title ever in the market. One of the rare recent studio titles to score a timely release in China, NTTD is the fourth biggest Hollywood movie of the year there ($60M estimated cume). France, at an estimated $32M, and Netherlands with an estimated $22M so far, round out the Top 5 markets. In the latter, Bond held No. 1 for seven consecutive weeks and this frame will become the market’s fourth biggest film ever and the top Bond of all time.

    In other highlights, Australia’s November 11 opening was the biggest in the market since December 2019 (current cume $15M).

    In Denmark, No Time To Die was No. 1 for seven weeks, had the biggest Bond opening ever and is the top 007 title of all time. It is the second movie in the country’s history to cross DKK 100M in gross box office.

    For the Middle East, the movie is the biggest across the region in 2021; and
    Eastern Europe has also performed very strongly with top 2021 openings in Czech Republic, Hungary, Pland and Slovakia.

    In Russia, Hong Kong, Ukraine, Colombia, Argentina, Sweden and the Baltics, No Time To Die is the biggest Bond film ever.
