The new James Bond thriller Quantum of Solace (Daniel Craig) has had a decent opening at the U.S. box office.
For its opening weekend (Nov 14-16, 2008), Quantum of Solace came in at No-1 at the U.S. box office with a total gross of $70.4 million, way ahead of the previous Bond flick, Casino Royale ($40.83 million).
The latest Bond movie had an average gross of $20,400, slightly lower than Will Smith’s I am Legend.
As SearchIndia.com said in its review of Quantum of Solace:
Whether in the daring action scenes as he leaps across roof-tops in pursuit of the betrayer Mitchell or fighting high-up in dark, tall buildings or showing that faintly noticeable flicker of emotion about Vesper, Daniel Craig is a joy to behold.
You donâ€™t expect great acting in a Bond movie, a Jason Bourne flick or a Superman sequel but Daniel Craig delivers.
…Its shortcomings notwithstandings, Quantum of Solace is decent fare – a lavish buffet set on a well decorated table with most of the usual Bond ingredients in abundant supply.
