Spectre has broken all-time box office records in nearly every market in which it has been released so far.

The 24th James Bond movie’s launch in the UK set a new record for movies released on a Monday – as opposed to a Friday – taking more than £41 million ($65 million) in its first week.

Spectre beat previous Monday release record holder, 2004’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which took £23.8 million.Spectre box office record

Records were also set in the Norway, the Netherlands, Finland and Denmark.

Spectre took $80.4 million in all six released territories.

Skyfall, the previous James Bond movie, was the highest-grossing 007 movie in the franchise’s history, taking $1.1 billion worldwide.

Daniel Craig’s fourth outing as 007 has received widespread critical acclaim, with one saluting it as “pure action mayhem”.

Spectre opens in the US on November 6 where it is expected to top the box office, after a Halloween weekend of flops.
