Bond In Numbers


#1

An interesting statistical breakdown of the Bond films. We’ve seen them before but this is the most up to date, I think:

To me, the most interesting part is the adjusted box office, summarised by Forbes:

It’s particularly relevant to the (seemingly constant) discussions among fans as to whether and why EON keep DC around… Personal relationships aside, he’s objectively good business for any studio!

I confess numbers aren’t my strong suit, but those “adjusted for inflation” figures are fascinating. This is the first time I’ve ever seen TWSLM listed as more profitable than MR, for instance. And it’s remarkable how much more money LALD brought in than Connery’s swan song in DAF (or any other Moore Bond, for that matter), if this is accurate.
