Daniel Craig's last turn as 007, "No Time to Die", has debuted at the top of the U.S. box office with less of a bang than expected.
The Brit's fifth and final outing as the suave spy opened in the U.S. on Thursday (07Oct21) and scored an estimated take of $56 million (£41 million) in its first four days of release, according to Deadline.
Industry experts expected the film, co-starring Oscar winner Rami Malek and featuring a theme song by hitmaker Billie Eilish, to earn closer to $60 million (£44 million) during its opening weekend.
It couldn't match the previous weekend's (01-03Oct21) champ, "Venom: Let There Be Carnage", which pulled in a pandemic-best $90 million (£66.1 million). The Tom Hardy sequel landed in second place with $31.1 million (£23 million).
Meanwhile, "No Time to Die" has now raked in $313.3 million (£230 million) worldwide and has still yet to open in China.
Animated film "The Addams Family 2" rounded out the top three, earning $9.8 million (£7.2 million).
