Premiere Dates & Box Office Earnings

I’ve compiled a list of Bond film premiere dates and Bond film box office earnings. Then, I summarized the relationships between them. It’s pretty interesting … check out the results:

Seems like the films launched in June and December have generated the most bank for EON Productions. November comes in at third. With these lists, I haven’t taken into consideration James Bond stars, seasons, or decades; therefore, you can expect more stats to come!

Special thanks to Karl Bennett and Box Office Mojo for their assistance with the numbers/statistics.

    Hello
    I Love the name of your blog, l like many am a 007 fan, but I have taken it a step further than most because of my profession as a airbrush artist and sculptor.
    I have created a 007 themed home movie theatre for a client, If you would like to see all the photos I can e-mail them to you. Any self respecting Bond fan would give up their (license to kill) to have one in thier own home. HA HA
    Sincerly,
    Dwight Lockhart

    PS keep up the good work!
