NO TIME TO Die has become the No. 1 film released in Ireland in 2021 after just 5 days of trading.

The 25th installment of the James Bond franchise, which marks Daniel Craig’s final outing as the secret agent, grossed €1.73 million in its opening weekend across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

This makes it the biggest ever Bond opening weekend to date. 

The last two Bond films, Skyfall and Spectre, made €1.60 million and €1.32 million, respectively. 

According to Universal Pictures International Ireland, the all-Ireland box office figure for No Time to Die to date is €2.35 million. 

The film is enjoying similar success worldwide.
