It’s mission accomplished for Bond in the UK

No Time To Die3

After an interminable wait, Daniel Craig’s last outing as Bond has been a real shot in the arm for cinemas across the UK.

After smashing its way into the top spot last week, the not-so-secret agent topped the bill once again with a further £25.9m in its second week, taking its overall domestic tally to an eye-popping £52m.

Leaving a trail of destruction in its wake, Bond’s closest rival was newcomer The Addams Family 2, featuring Charlize Theron and Oscar Isaac, just in time for Halloween, which took just £2m.

Marvel superhero Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings lost his footing, plummeting to third, with family favourite The Paw Patrol Movie in fourth. 

Elsewhere a young Tony Soprano slipped to fifth in The Many Saints Of ewark, while Ryan Reynolds’ Free Guy was in free fall down in sixth.

Nia DaCosta’s Candyman stumbled to seventh, with Asian title Chai Mera Putt 3 in eighth.

Black comedy Deadly Cuts opened in ninth, with Aretha Franklin biopic Respect, starring Jennifer Hudson, in tenth.
