No Time To Die is already one of the top 10 highest grossing James Bond movies of all time just two weeks after its release, racking up £50million in the UK.

Daniel Craig’s final outing as as the secret agent has thrilled fans so far, making a not too shabby £52.7 million as of October 10, according to PA.

In fact, it became the highest-grossing movie of 2021 just four days after its release into cinemas – although, with plenty of big releases towards the end of the year, Dune and Spider-Man: No Way Home might have something to say about that.

At the moment, it stands at number eight in the list of most successful Bond films of all time, just behind Die Another Die, which was released in 2002, which raked in £55.5million.

Top of the list is 2021 film Skyfall, Daniel’s third Bond movie, which took a whopping £125.9 million.

 Spectre (2015) follows behind with £110.3 million.

Comparable UK box office data began in 1975 – which means no films starring the original 007, Sir Sean Connery, make it into the chart.

Daniel, who recently landed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, was emotional as he said goodbye to the character in a heart-wrenching speech.

In a sweet moment from the Being James Bond documentary on Apple TV, the 53-year-old addressed everyone on set after shooting his final scene.

‘A lot of people here worked on five pictures with me,’ he said. ‘And I know there’s a lot of things said about what I think about these films or all of those… Whatever.

‘But I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one, because I’ve got up every morning and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys.’

Getting choked up, he added: ‘That has been one of the greatest honours of my life.’

Daniel has starred in five Bond films across his 15-year stint in the famous tuxedo, making his debut in Casino Royale in 2006.

He also showed off his spy skills in Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre and new release No Time To Die.

No Time To Die is in cinemas now.
