Box Office: Bond doesn’t break the bank, “Carnage” bleeds out

Swooning predictions of an epic, maybe a franchise record opening for Daniel Craig’s last outing as James Bond should have been silenced by its Thursday night previews.

“No Time to Die” did a little over $6, compared to “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” clearing over $8 the Thursday before.

“Carnage” opened at about $90, “Die” is on track, after Thursday and a $23 million Friday, to manage $62-64. “Skyfall” tallied $88 million on opening.

Yes, there’s still a pandemic keeping people at home and yes, the Bond audience is older.

The second weekend of the Venom sequel is seeing a 65% plunge. Maybe $31 million by midnight Sunday.
