The challenge of No Time To Die not to be an economic failure
Films that are released in theaters must be analyzed from two perspectives: on the one hand, the narrative and visual, and on the other, the economic one. Many times, these positions do not go hand in hand, and that a film is praised does not mean that it translates into income and ticket cuts at the box office. For No Time To Die, the economic objective would be around 900 million dollars.
Companies House, a British agency, estimated that $ 280 million was spent to produce the film, which due to delays amounted to $ 314 million. In addition, when the money allocated to promote the film is added, this number rises to 464 million dollars. MGM, owner of the image rights has an agreement that makes her the owner of 50% of each ticket sold, which makes James Bond need to raise, at least 900 million to avoid being in debt.
