“Quantum of Solace” Scores Big

James Bond lured moviegoers en masse Friday as Sony-MGM’s “Quantum of Solace” set an opening day record for the 007 franchise with a boffo $27 million.

Given the pic’s first day haul from 3,451 engagements and its hefty $7,824 per theater, there’s no question that “Quantum” will outstrip Bond’s top two weekend bows, 2002’s “Die Another Day” ($47.1 million) and 2006’s “Casino Royale” ($40.8 million).

According to Rentrak Theatrical, “Die” owned the previous first day record for a Bond pic at $16.6 million with “Casino Royale” following in second with $14.7 million.

Directed by Marc Forster, “Quantum” marks the first action tentpole for the Blightly helmer whose resume has consisted of critically acclaimed award-driven fare such as 2004’s period drama “Finding Neverland” and 2001’s “Monster’s Ball.” (source)

  1. Quantum of Solace is entertaining at least… a lot of high quality visuals, but the movie as a whole could stand to lose six or seven fewer chase scenes
