24th James Bond adventure - SPECTRE makes biggest opening in UK box office history

Bookmark and Share

SPECTRE – the 24th James Bond adventure on Decca/Universal Music Classics is one of the most anticipated film soundtracks of the year. After the success of Skyfall and winning a BAFTA for best film music, Thomas Newman (‘American Beauty', ‘The Shawshank Redemption') returned on SPECTRE to create an original score to accompany the film.  The soundtrack album includes a new instrumental version of Sam Smith's new Bond main title song ‘Writing's On The Wall'. Thomas Newman comments: "It was a real honor to write the score to SPECTRE. The Bond films have such a rich musical heritage so it's been an incredible privilege to return to the franchise after Skyfall and create a soundtrack for this spectacular new movie."

SPECTRE has just broken records to become the biggest opening of all time in UK box office history. In its first seven days of release it has made an estimated £41.7 million. In addition to the UK success, records were also set in Norway, the Netherlands, Finland and Denmark, with Spectre taking $80.4m in all six released territories. OST also made #25 in the UK pop charts this past weekend. As the film opens across in the US and across the world this week, this story will spread – please use the film success and local reviews in your own market to push the OST and please do share your success stories with us.
