SPECTREacular box-office breaks UK records

Since it's launch last Monday (26th October), the 24th installment of the legendary James Bond franchise, 'Spectre', has broken all kinds of UK Box Office records.

The film opened with £6.3 million taking on its opening day (26/10) which set a new UK record. In it's opening week 'Spectre' has grossed £41.7 million which has overtaken the record that was previously held by Harry Potter and the Prison of Azkaban in 2004 which took £23.88 million in its first week.

Over the last weekend between Friday and Saturday, the film made £20.4 million which has beaten the record (over the same period) which was held by Bond's last outing in 2012, Skyfall.

The final record that 'Spectre' has been is the "best per-screening opening average" with £71,300 with the record previously being held by 2012's The Dark Knight Rises which brought in approx £65,000 per screening.

With all of those records broken, we here at The Digital Fix look forward to seeing how our boy Bond fares when the film opens this week in North America and beyond.

'Spectre' is out now in UK Cinemas in IMAX and 2D and opens in the US on November 6th
