James Bond News: 'Spectacular' First Night For 'Spectre' At Box Office [VIDEO]

Daniel Craig who plays James Bond left the box office shaken and stirred on its first evening in cinemas on Monday, taking £4.1m ($6.2m) in 647 venues across the UK. Spectre is the 24th Bond film and the second to be directed by Sam Mendes. The previous series entry Skyfall, took £6.2m ($9.5m) on its first day, according to The Guardian.

The new Bond film has been critically acclaimed, with five-star reviews in The Guardian and The Telegraph. Though few industry experts believe it can beat Skyfall's performance as the highest-grossing film ever in the UK, sources say that they expect the film to take around £35m ($54m) in its first week.
