Well, some hard-core James Bond fans saw SPECTRE this weekend as movie theaters were consumed by a tsunami of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The 24th James Bond film was No. 12 in the U.S. and Canada with an estimated $1.445 million in ticket sales, ACCORDING TO BOX OFFICE MOJO.

The movie’s screen total was cut by more than half in the region. SPECTRE was available on 1,225 screens for the Dec. 18-20 weekend, 1,439 fewer than the Dec. 11-13 weekend.

The big news in theaters, of course, was the seventh Star Wars film, the first in the series since 2005. Its estimated U.S.-Canada box office was $238 million, a record-shattering performance. The previous record holder was this year’s Jurassic World at $208.8 million.

With its overseas take, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is more than halfway to a billion dollars at $517 million.

Meanwhile, SPECTRE’s global figure is now at $824 million and its U.S.-Canada figure is an estimated $193.9 million as its run in theaters winds down. On an unadjusted basis, SPECTRE is the No. 2 007 film behind Skyfall’s $1.11 billion.

UPDATE: Later on Sunday, Box Office Mojo updated SPECTRE’s worldwide box office to date to $836 million.
