The latest James Bond movie, No Time to Die, is already getting critical acclaim, and now it has been revealed that Daniel Craig‘s super-spy swan song in getting the widest-ever release in the U.K.
Variety reports that the movie has opened in 772 cinemas in the U.K. — 25 more than the previous record holder, Star Wars: Episode IX — Rise of Skywalker.
The move has worked so far: The movie brought in nearly $7 million on its opening day, September 30.
What’s more, the movie is playing on the biggest screen in the world — the brand-new IMAX screen in the Traumpalast Multiplex in Leonberg, Germany.
The screen is some 70 feet tall and 125 feet wide — wider than a Boeing 737 airliner.
No Time to Die, the 25th James Bond adventure, opens in the U.S. on October 8.
