Featuring Daniel Craig’s final performance as the MI6 agent, the movie was projected to earn between $60 – $70 million (€51,842,340 – €60,482,730) and it looks like it’s on track to hitting its targets.

The movie also smashed box office records in the UK during the opening weekend, accumulating £25 million (€29,437,875).

According to Sky News, the movie is the first Hollywood blockbuster to generate $100 million (€86,412,000) in sales without the “crucial” film market of China.
