Halo 5: Guardians beats Bond at the UK box office
One man, set against a shadowy conspiracy, with only his wits, his friends, a cool suit, and the best gadgets governmental slush funds can buy. OK, yes, I could be talking about Iron Man, or Batman, or Robocop, or awful Jackie Chan vehicle ‘The Tuxedo’, but I’m actually using this as a very clever comparison between the Halo and Bond series. Haha.
In another win for businesses who sell to bedrooms instead of cinemas, Microsoft has today revealed that Halo 5: Guardians outdid new Bond outing, Spectre at the UK box office on their respective opening days. The Xbox One title made £7.7m on day one, compared to Spectre’s £6.3m.
