‘No Time to Die’ Cinematographer Linus Sandgren on What It’s Really Like Shooting a James Bond Movie in IMAX

Over the past few years, Oscar-winning Cinematographer Linus Sandgren has built up quite a resume. As the director of photography on films like La La Land, First Man, American Hustle, Battle of the Sexes, and The Hundred-Foot Journey, Sandgren has shown he’s got a great eye behind the camera, which explains why director Cary Joji Fukunaga asked him shoot the latest James Bond movie, No Time to Die. In fact, Fukunaga told me it was Sandgren’s fantastic work on First Man that got him the job.

Friday Box Office: ‘Venom 2’ And ‘Sopranos’ Fall Hard, ‘Shang-Chi’ And ‘Addams Family 2’ Hold Firm

In holdover news, Venom: Let There Be Carnage earned $8.85 million on its second Friday, falling a brutal 76% and setting the stage for a $32.49 million (-64%) second-weekend gross. Venom fell 69% on its second Friday with far less competition, all due respect to First Man. A 64% weekend drop for Venom 2 would be just slightly worse than the 62% drops for Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017 and Ant-Man and the Wasp in 2018, both of which legged out afterward. The hope is that the Tom Hardy/Woody Harrelson superhero sequel plays like those films or a 2000’s-era Adam Sandler flick, namely with a big second-weekend drop but with strong legs over the next month as the consensus choice/second-choice for moviegoing groups.

Box Office: ‘Venom 2’ Has One Simple Advantage Against Bond, ‘Dune’ And ‘Eternals’

With another $6.21 million (+8% from Monday) on its fifth day of release, Andy Serkis and Kelly Marcel’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage has officially passed $100 million at the domestic box office. The $110 million superhero sequel overperformed last weekend with a $90 million Fri-Sun opening frame, which was 12.5% higher than the $80 million launch of Venom on this same weekend in 2018. The film’s five-day total of $102 million is just slightly higher than the $98.112 million five-day cume of the previous Tom Hardy/Michelle Williams flick. It’s also essentially tied with the $101 million five-day cume (following a $94 million Fri-Mon Labor Day launch) of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
