James Bond No Time to Die, goal 900 million dollars!

The upcoming James Bond No Time to Die will only generate profits from $ 900 million in box office receipts.

The film, scheduled for September 30, 2021 in British cinemas and a week later in American theaters (October 6 in France), initially had a production cost of $ 296 million. Following the various exit postponements linked to the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, the bill now stands at $ 314 million.

No Time to Die, 900 million dollars to be profitable

According to the well-informed fan site, if we add marketing and reshoots to keep product placements in the film in line with current events, the overall cost of the film would reach $ 464 million. dollars. Knowing that the exhibitors get about 50% of the film's revenue, it would need to reach $ 900 million to begin to be profitable for the MGM studio. FYI, since the Covid-19 pandemic, the only film to have approached this amount is Fast 9 with $ 642 million (an amount mainly linked to sales of the film in China).
