Spectre looks on course to storm to the top of the UK box office at the end of the weekend after a terrific opening night.



Screenings of the latest Bond film got underway fifteen minutes after the start of the royal premiere in London at hundred of cinemas across the country.

Spectre has been one of the most anticipated films of the year and fan flocked to see the latest instalment. The movie took £4.1 million on the opening night alone - a total that would see it already top of the UK box office.

Tuesday was the first full day on release from the movie, with some cinemas screening the movie from 10am. It already looks set to post one of the biggest opening week totals of the year and could well be one of the biggest British movies of all time.

Spectre is the twenty fourth Bond movie and sees Sam Mendes back in the director's chair for his second consecutive Bond film. This is also his first directorial outing since he steered Skyfall to a billion dollar success back in 2012.

The movie will also be the fourth film that we see Daniel Craig take on the role of 007 - it is not yet clear if this will be the last time that we see him take on this role.

Craig is joined on the cast list by a mix of new and familiar faces as Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista, and Léa Seydoux star, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, and Naomie Harris are reprising their roles as M, Q, and Eve Moneypenny.

Skyfall went on to be the highest grossing Bond movie of all time in 2012, when it took $1.109 billion at the global box office - the movie was also met by critical acclaim and is regarded as the best Bond film of all time.

Spectre looks set to be a box office smash in the UK, but U.S. audiences are going to have to wait until 6th November before they get the chance to see the film.
