MGM, Eon and Universal’s No Time to Die is officially the second-highest grossing film of 2021.

According to reports, Daniel Craig‘s last stint as James Bond surpassed $368 million USD at the international box office and $474 million USD worldwide, and is projected to cross $500 million USD this weekend. Cary Joji Fukunaga’s 007 film is also the Universal’s most popular title in the U.K. and is the highest-grossing film in the EMEA region. No Time to Die trails F9, which is also a project of Universal’s.

In a recent interview with HYPEBEAST, Craig touched on the lessons he learned from portraying the 007 agent and shared his thoughts on how Bond has progressed throughout the years:

“I think they’ve always mirrored politics and they’ve certainly mirrored the styles at the time. We’ve definitely had a lot of discussion between the producers, the directors and creatives involved about trying to push it in a direction that stays on the Bond path but make it work in the present time frame. One of the things I’m proudest of is that with this film, we’ve brought all of the characters up to his level, especially the female parts. As complicated and as f***ed up as he is, they interact with him in a very interesting way. We’ve definitely tried to push it in that direction without losing the spirit of a Bond movie but it kind of tries to strike that balance.”

Elsewhere in entertainment, the home seen in A Nightmare on Elm Street is up for sale.
