    This was addressed in weekend thread. The problem was lack of young audience for NTTD, not old ones. Bond franchise failed in getting the young demos to the fold.

    Yeah CoVID did hurt it in LATAM and Asia, but will hardly an issue for Bond, may be $20-30M more.

    Fair but $20-30M could be the difference between $750M+ and $800M. It's still money left on the table.

    I think it would do around what it did now. Reason being non-reliance on market which are currently impacted by CoVID. Also tickets are abnormally increased at many places to set off CoVID in Europe. 


    Like in Germany, the ATP is EUR11 compared to EUR9.5 of Spectre. In UK its around GBP10+ compared to 8ish of Spectre. Similarily in Nordics.


    Also lucky that ER got better due to CoVID by 10% or so in most European currency as compared to what they were in 2019.

    But it seems the X factor here is the US and China. Would better conditions have created better results in these two markets?


    NTTD's gross in the US seems to have been hurt by theater hesitancy on the part of older demographics. In China, the under performance seems multi-layered: 1. Universal's marketing tour was scrapped 2. Recent theater closures due to new COVID outbreaks 3. China's hostility toward foreign films.


    Add to this recurring COVID issues in Russia and Latin America that suppressed the box office in those regions.

    The $750M seems more and more realistic.


    I think closer to $780-790 based on the performance in current markets, and projections from three upcoming premieres in Australia, Malaysia and the Philippines.

    We'll probably have a new Bond actor confirmed by the end of next year, then a couple of years after that we'll get the next film

    Next is the 60th anniversary of the film series so there's hope that we may get a that major announcement. Craig was announced October 2005.

  5. Obviously, we'll see what kind of domestic legs NTTD has, but I'm not completely convinced that the takeaway should be skewing younger. International numbers suggest that Bond is as strong as ever.  I mean, many countries are still operating at limited capacity and NTTD has already grossed over $300M WW. With China and Australia upcoming, there's still a shot that NTTD comes in at number 2 or 3 in Hollywood box office takings for the year.

    This is a franchise that still attracts older crowd. With some if not most of them not wanting to risk covid, maybe its international numbers could be less.


    Older is a relative term. Certainly, there are some 80 year old fans but the average sits between 25 and 45. I think NTTD will perform in Europe. I worry about Australia and China. NTTD opens in China at the end of the month, while the Australian opening is in November.
