It’s old news that Skyfall became James Bond’s first billion dollar film, but if you adjusted for inflation (consumer price index), Thunderball was still on top in box office gross. Until today. Skyfall has finally managed to pass Thunderball’s $1.031 billion. Skyfall currently has $1.032 billion which is also (unadjusted) good enough for 11th all-time worldwide. And it still has China to go which will likely push 007’s 23rd film past this year’s The Dark Knight Rises making it #2 for 2012 behind The Avengers.
In the United States Skyfall is just shy of $300 million and should cross that mark by next weekend.
