SPECTRE is projected to have a final global box office of $850 million to $870 million, THE WRAP ENTERTAINMENT NEWS WEBSITE reported, citing analysts that track movie box office trends.

The 24th James Bond film could reach $900 million “in the most favorable scenario,” according to the story by Todd Cunningham.

That would be short of Skyfall’s $1.11 billion, but still be one of the top global box office films of 2015. According to BOX OFFICE MOJO, SPECTRE was No. 6 at $750.3 million through Nov. 30.

Here’s an excerpt from The Wrap’s story:

“The expectations for these franchise films gets a little unrealistic at times. I think the more relevant comparison is to look at the meteoric rise of these two films from the one before them,” Exhibitor Relations senior analyst Jeff Bock told TheWrap, referring to 2008’s “Quantum of Solace,” which topped out at $586 million globally.

“Spectre” outperformed “Skyfall” in several foreign markets, most noticeably in China, where it has taken in $83 million since opening on November 13, compared to the $59 million overall taken in by the earlier film.

The shortfall has come from the film’s home turf, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.

“Skyfall” brought in $161 million from the U.K., while “Spectre” is at $128 million since breaking records in its debut there a month ago. In North America, “Spectre” is at $177 million after 25 days in release, whereas “Skyfall” was at $247 million at this point, and wound up the fourth-highest-grossing domestic release of 2012 with $304 million.

  1. ONLY $850 million??? What a humiliating failure! I blame Daniel Craig – the public has obviously fallen out of love with him as James Bond. Of course, Wilson & Broccoli have no idea what they’re doing, and the suits at MGM and Sony have badly mishandled the franchise. Only $850 million… The James Bond movie series is DOOMED! Doomed , I tell you!

  2. Almost as humiliated as Marvel/Disney felt when Avengers: Age of Ultra ONLY grossed $1.4 billion. 🙂
