I thought we could use this thread for the "boring" side of things and keep an eye on how well 'SPECTRE' does at the box-office in the UK and around the world and how it fares with 'Skyfall' and the competition.
 
So far, it's broken UK records for a Tuesday. :)

http://www.forbes.co...-6m-uk-opening/

Currently stands at around $25m takings.

A super target will be to eclipse the £109m taken in the UK by 'Skyfall' which is the highest grossing UK film EVER. I doubt it will hit that peak with the wealth of films coming out soon to detract audiences, but we will see.

A darned good reason why it was released on Monday 26th October - same time as premiere?

In most parts of the UK it is half term week. Boost from kids off school, along with some parents off work and grandparents available to take to flicks with kids?

Ah that explains. Was at the 12.30 screening at the Odeon Leicester Square yesterday (had to see it a second time before catching he flight home) and I was amazed that the cinema was almost fully packed and that there were so many young folks.

There is little or no reason for inflation adjusted figures as in the 60's people did not go around saying, 'I will wait for the DVD release.'

 

The ONLY way to see the film in those days was IN the cinema - so people went.

 

To my mind, inflation adjusted figures for a series as long as the Bond series may only begin to make sense by decade.

No offense but that is ridiculous. You can take what you want from the list but there are hundreds of things that differ from one generation to the next...multiplexes, advertising, video games, population, DVD...

Some factors favor one generation over another it's not completely one-sided.

You've got it! Half term in most of UK (might be half term for bits that weren't last week this coming week!) There is method in the "madness" of opening in the UK on the last Monday in October, instead of the usual long weekend!

But Hockey man, your list of variations only makes the desire to compare even more ridiculous.  You are actually supporting my argument.

 

If population varies so much, then, right there is one huge factor to make comparing a 1960's box office take to a 2010's BO take completely irrelevant.

 

My main point was, comparing 1960 to 2010 is pointless.  The factors that make it so are Not confined only to DVD, but also to the many factors you allude to.

 

I could also cite a liking for modern day audiences to get more of a kick out of wrecking bus shelters as an alternate form of entertainment to that which a cinematic Bond film offers...

But an unadjusted list is far more deceptive when Skyfall made five times the money over Thunderball but sold half the tickets. The truth is far closer to the unadjusted numbers.

Adjusted numbers give you one "truth" and that is tickets sold.

Unadjusted numbers give you one "truth" and that is tickets sold.

 

Don't you mean adjusted numbers give you tickets sold? That's the purpose of inflation-adjusted figures for ticket sales, after all...

 

Comparing adjusted figures is fun! But yes, it does have it's problems. In the 60s, there were far fewer cinemas in America, making it difficult for portions of the population to see a Bond film; at the same time, everyone had to go to the cinema to see a Bond movie. There are many more films released annually now than back then; but marketing is much more potent and studios spend significantly more on it than they did in the 60s. So is it all swings-and-roundabouts?

From boxofficemojo...

The latest James Bond film released in six territories so far where it has taken in $80.4 million, which includes record-breaking numbers in the UK where it opened to an estimated £41.7 million ($63.8 million USD) in its first seven days of release. Spectre took the highest seven day gross record in UK box office history from the last James Bond film, Skyfall.

Additional records were broken in the Netherlands where Spectre took in 3.3 million Euro ($3.7 million USD), surpassing the record set by Skyfall. In the Nordic region, Spectre set records in Finland and Norway with 2.35 million Euro ($2.63 million USD) and 24.4 million krone ($2.88 million USD) respectively. In Denmark it achieved the biggest three-day opening of all time with 28.1 million krone ($4.21 million USD), also surpassing Skyfall. In Sweden it added another 24.95 million krone ($2.97 million USD), 30% over the opening of Skyfall.

Add to that a new IMAX record as it opened with the highest per-location average in IMAX history. Spectre is the first film to ever top a $100,000 per-location average, bringing in $5 million on 47 IMAX screens. The previous IMAX, per-location record for an opening weekend was Transformers: Dark of the Moon's per screen of $76K. Spectre will arrive on 537 IMAX screens next weekend, including stateside where it will open in 3,600+ theaters, hoping to top the $88.3 million opening weekend Skyfall enjoyed in 2012.

I am sure comparing takings and figures over the decades might be fun, in some senses.  But if the deemed worth is to actually tell one something of meaning and merit, and for the figures to actually tell a story, then it is a completely pointless exercise.

 

The numerous variables are completely incalculable since they are subject to such wide ranging evolutions in the populace.

 

One might as well study if telecoms companies are more successful now than in the 60s?  Inflation adjust that one.

I think the general public will get more overall entertainment from 'SPECTRE' than 'Skyfall'. For casual fans and film lovers, this does deliver lots of the ticks they may want to see from a DC Bond film.

 

It's us hardcore fans who pick apart things the most, but generally I think it's very appealing and on course to do well for the UK. It's already nearly half-way to the total of 'Skyfall' in just its first week.

'Skyfall' had a whole year of marketing both consciously and subconsciously to the globe thanks to the 50th Anniversary. So much Bond fever swept the world and 'Skyfall' was the ultimate celebration of that year and the series for people to immerse themselves in. Nothing will top that. It'd be interesting to see what the film would have taken without the 50th Anniversary year backing it up.

It wasn't just necessarily the 50th Anniversary, but the overall marketing was top notch. I couldn't go anywhere or see anything without running into Skyfall.

 

With Spectre, it only feels as if the marketing has just kicked in full blown within the last month reminding everyone about a new Bond film.

So they're expecting a worldwide total of $700m? Interesting, no wonder they were so concerned about the budget. I'm betting $880m worldwide ;)
