  Die Another Day explodes at the box office
Updated 22 November 2002, 20.50
James Bond has sold loads of tickets
James Bond 20 has made an explosive start at the box office, making over a million pounds in one day.

Fans of the super-smooth spy spent a whopping £1.2m on tickets when it was released on Wednesday.

That made the money it made even more impressive, because normally films debut on a Friday, when people are more likely to go to the cinema.

As always, Bond 20 has some top stunts

Now movie experts reckon Die Another Day will take more in its opening weekend - which runs from Wednesday to Sunday - than the last Bond movie.

Bond films make big money in the UK, with the last three films making more than £70m between them.

But even though over a million quid is pretty good going it's not as impressive as the midweek opening of Lord of Rings last year, which raked in a giant-sized £2.1m.
