After its first weekend, 007's newest movie Spectre made history not only by taking the box office, but also by having the second highest opening for a Bond movie of all time ($70.4 million). First place is still firmly held by Skyfall, which made $88.4 million on its opening weekend in 2012. Let's look at the rest of the top 5 Bond box office openings:
#3 - Quantum of Solace ($67.5 million)
Daniel Craig's second appearance as 007 premiered in 2008. While the movie received less-than-stellar reviews, Bond's mission to track down Mr. Greene and stop his plot to ruin Bolivia's economy earned a respectable claim to the #3 spot on this list.
#4 - Die Another Day ($47.1 million)
Pierce Brosnan's final portrayal of James Bond was not his best movie, but the 2002 film landed the fourth best Bond opening weekend of all time.
#5 - Casino Royale ($40.8 million)
Daniel Craig's first turn as Bond, released in 2006, nabbed the final spot in the Bond top 5. All of Craig's Bond movies are in the top 5 for Bond Opening weekend box office numbers.
