    I didn't know it started on Thursday, but I'm fine with both. Just pick the one that is closest to my guess.

    It wasn't clear on BOM that it was a Thursday release, but either way the weekend number they're showing is this surprisingly low number:

    ...so it becomes a moot point as none of us were within the +/- $10m range of it :D

    Wow, that IS suprising :eek: What the maclunkey-clunk happened there?!

    Perhaps NTtD will have a long, slow-burn run instead of a massive opening*.

    So, after Venom took everyone by surprise with a $90m debut, the much delayed Bond outing fell significantly short of expectations with a humbling $56m opening - making it the second major release in a row where way out guesses meant none of us has scored anything :confused:

    On our leaderboard there were some much more on-point guesses for Venom and Free Guy, where notably @Bluemilk nailed the second week for the pseudo-Spider and @Meister Yoda went one financial step further and separated the guesses of our resident Kylux duo for Free Guy, realigning them to equal ground once again...

    1 @Anubis78 95 +0
    = @Lazarus Dei 95 +15
    3 @Meister Yoda 80 +5
    4 @NinjaRen 75 +15
    = @RockyRoadHux 75 +10
    6 @Bluemilk 65 +15
    7 @Angelman 30 +0
    8 @Addi Ras 25 +0
    9 @DarthSnow 0 +0

    No Time To Die $56.0m
    1. -
    2. -
    3. -

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage $32m
    1. @Bluemilk +15
    2. @RockyRoadHux +10
    3. @NinjaRen +5

    Free Guy $1.3m
    1. @Lazarus Dei +15
    2. @NinjaRen +10
    3. @Meister Yoda +5

    Having seen it at the weekend, I can see why it's proven to be somewhat divisive at the box office

    I kinda thought it was gonna be a little low that's why I guessed 95 mil. But never thought it wouldn't even make 60 mil

    yep, i'm genuinely surprised it was that low - Venom opened pretty much 60% bigger. all i can think of is that it's representative of the demographic for the two films, i.e. more young folk going for the comic book shenanigans, while the long running Bond franchise appeals to an older audience (Craig has been in role for 15yrs) many of whom are likely more covid cautious and not wanting to head back to the cinema yet.

    Perfect.
    Although given how accurate my guess have been so far I'm not sure being so close to me is a good idea :)
