quantum-of-solace-international-poster Quantum of Solace, already breaking box office records worldwide, is looking to do equally amazing business in the US, which isn’t one of the top markets for James Bond movies in the world.

As of 1:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 15, it looks like the film has grossed at least $26 million — paving the way for a staggering, but possible, $70 million opening weekend. Not too bad for a 46-year-old movie series!

Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood Daily has the latest numbers. You can read all about it RIGHT HERE.

And for all you Bond fans who have some issues with the film itself, our best advice has always been: if you really, really hate it, then only go to see it twice.
