Spectre sees Daniel Craig play 007 for a fourth time
James Bond film Spectre has raced to the top of the North American box office in its first weekend of release.
The 24th film in the spy franchise, which sees Daniel Craig reprise his role as 007, earned $73m (£48.5m) between Friday and Sunday, according to early estimates.
But the film failed to beat the performance of the last Bond movie Skyfall, which took $88.4m in 2012.
The lower figure was partly due to this weekend’s release of The Peanuts Movie.
