Quantum of Solace Opened at No. 1 nationwide!
James Bond shook and stirred the Philippine box office as the latest 007 adventure 'Quantum of Solace' opened at No. 1 nationwide with a staggering five-day opening weekend gross of P53.1-million in 255 screens from Nov. 5 to 9. This was announced today by Victor R. Cabrera, Managing Director of Columbia Pictures which distributed the film.
"Quantum's" opening surpassed the debut of 2006's 'Casino Royale' – the first Bond film to star Daniel Craig -- by a menacing 58 percent. It also smashed the record of July's 'Hancock' as the year's best opening for a Columbia Pictures title.
In an unprecedented rollout, the new Bond action-thriller arrived in the Philippines a full nine days prior to its Nov. 14 debut in the U.S. Local moviegoers took advantage of this rare opportunity, filling theaters to capacity crowds. The film likewise received rave reviews from local critics which further fueled positive word-of-mouth.http://guides.clickthecity.com/movies/?p=4018
