"Spectre" continues to break records in the U.K. ahead of its Nov. 6 opening in North America.
When the 24th installment in the franchise released overseas last week, it grossed $9.2 million in its first day at the box office, beating the first-day sales of the current all-time highest-grossing Bond film, "Skyfall" and setting a new record for the biggest Tuesday ever in the U.K.
Now, as an encore, "Spectre" has broken the record for the largest U.K. opening in history, grossing more than $80 million during its opening week.
