We took a deeper look at the U.S.-Canada box office numbers for SPECTRE, comparing them to Skyfall. There is one surprise. All figures via Box Office Mojo.

DAYS IN RELEASE: 129 (and counting), for SPECTRE, 108 for Skyfall.

Or, put another way, the 24th James Bond film has been in U.S.-Canadian theaters three weeks longer than the 23rd.

Since Friday, SPECTRE has been available on 16 screens in the region. Skyfall, in its last weekend in release (Feb. 22-24, 2013) was on 184 screens.

BOX OFFICE TOTALS: $304.4 million for Skyfall. $199,954,501 (estimated as of Sunday) for SPECTRE. The latter includes an estimated $47,000 for the March 11-13 weekend. SPECTRE’s global box office now stands at an estimated $880.4 million.

NUMBER OF TICKETS SOLD U.S.-Canada:  37.842,000 for Skyfall,  22,983,300 for SPECTRE.

Given the box office, that’s not a surprise. This may be: SPECTRE has sold fewer tickets than 2008’s Quantum of Solace, 23,449,600.
