I actually sat and watched all 25 previous James Bond movies (yes, counting Sean Connery’s Never Say Never Again) during the first month of “lockdown” in April of 2020. So when I give my usual “this list will not be your list” disclaimer, I should also note that this list won’t necessarily be the list I […]

IMAX Has Best October Weekend Ever Thanks to Venom 2 & No Time To Die

In more encouraging news at the box office, IMAX announces its best weekend since late 2019 as two major blockbusters pull in excellent numbers

 

 

IMAX scores its best October weekend ever thanks to the combined efforts of Venom: Let There Be Carnage and No Time to Die. 2021 has been a rollercoaster year for movie theaters as the box office slowly inches back to normal. The arrival of vaccines has allowed theaters to reopen once more, though despite some encouraging signs in the spring, summer saw some lower numbers than experts had hoped as rising case numbers seemingly led to a dip in customers’ eagerness to return. Luckily, the past few weeks have shown more positive signs of recovery thanks to the incredible performances of movies like Free Guy, Candyman, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

With this past weekend, the fall movie season has officially swung into high gear. Because of all the schedule reshuffling studios have been forced to do amid the pandemic, the final months of 2021 will see the release of some of the biggest movies of the year. Venom: Let There Be Carnage just kicked things off with the biggest opening weekend of the pandemic era, having scored an impressive $90.1 million. Overseas, No Time to Die is similarly breaking pandemic records by opening to over $100 million.

Both of those films, plus Chinese blockbuster The Battle of Lake Changjin, have pushed IMAX to its best weekend since the pandemic began. IMAX announced Sunday it had hit $30 million globally over the weekend, which is its best October frame yet and the best for the company since December 2019. Venom: Let There Be Carnage earned $9.6 million worldwide on IMAX screens, which amounted to 9.5% of its opening total. No Time to Die, meanwhile, pulled in $6.8 million from 284 IMAX screens in 50 international markets. It represented two firsts for the James Bond franchise: The first movie to be filmed in IMAX, and the best IMAX opening for the series. IMAX’s president, Megan Colligan, said in a statement:
