The James Bond thriller “Spectre” opened to a record-smashing $80 million overseas this weekend, even better than the last 007 blockbuster “Skyfall” did in its international debut.

In the U.K., the film has taken in an estimated $64 million in its first seven days of release, the biggest opening run in that country’s box-office history. “Spectre” took the mark from “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” which was also released on a Monday and totaled $82 million in 2004.

And it set a record for the highest seven-day gross in U.K. box-office history, overtaking the last James Bond film, “Skyfall.” That one went on to gross $1.1 billion worldwide, and become the top franchise performer of all time.

“Spectre” opens in the United States on Friday

As the nation gets ready for the return of Britain’s favourite spy, eBay.co.uk has put together a ranking to determine the most popular Bond car.

The iconic Aston Martin DB5, which first featured in 1964’s Goldfinger has topped eBay’s Bond ranking. More than 37 pieces of Aston Martin DB5 related memorabilia are sold on the site every day – one every 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, the unlikely getaway car – a bright yellow Citroen 2CV – from in For Your Eyes Only – comes in at second place, selling one piece of related memorabilia every hour.

The first ever Bond car, the long-forgotten Sunbeam Alpine, sneaks into third place selling more than 1,800 items in the last three months.

As the nation gears up for the release of the much-anticipated Bond film; Spectre, eBay.co.uk has taken a look at how the stars who have portrayed the secret service agent over the years are faring.

Over the last 90 days, eBay.co.uk has seen more than 2,500 Daniel Craig related items sold on site, that’s 1 every hour, making him Britain’s favourite Bond, proving that he needn’t fear the ‘spectre’ of his predecessors. Current Daniel Craig listings include everything from signed photographs to life-size cardboard cut-outs.

Despite first gracing our screens as James Bond more than 50 years ago, Academy Award winner and first to coin the phrase ‘shaken, not stirred’, Sean Connery comes in a close second on the Bond ranking; 30 pieces of Connery related memorabilia are sold every day with shoppers snapping up disks, box sets and autographs.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Irish actor and ‘90s Bond’ Pierce Brosnan comes in third whilst early Bond Sir Roger Moore beats Timothy Dalton to fourth place selling just 17 pieces of memorabilia a day including books, posters and mugs.
