Following its release on 26 October (15), Spectre, Daniel Craig's fourth outing as the superspy, broke the record held by its predecessor Skyfall to score the biggest opening week ever at the U.K. box office.

It took $66.1 million (£41.3 million) during its first weekend in cinemas, putting it far beyond the reach of its nearest competitor, Hotel Transylvania 2, which scored $3.8 million (£2.4 million), and Hugh Jackman's Pan, which came in third with $1.3 million (£790,000).

Horror movie Paranormal Activity: Ghost Dimension 3D came fourth with $1.1 million (£705,000), while Meryl Streep's women's rights drama Suffragette rounded out the top five with $952,000 (£595,000).

Spectre has taken a massive $80.4 million (£50.2 million) at the global box office and the figure is expected to significantly increase when it is released in the U.S. on Friday (06Nov15).
