While speculation was non-stop over whether or not Casino Royale had bested Happy Feet for the #1 US box office spot over the weekend, the official numbers have been released today.
According to Box Office Mojo, Casino Royale earned $40,833,156 in its opening US weekend, placing it second by only $700,000 to Happy Feet, which took in $41,533,432. A ‘photo finish’ indeed.
According to Sony, Casino Royale‘s opening audience audience was 55% male and 57% over the age of 25.
Impressive is the word many Bond fans are using to describe the box office details so far for the newest James Bond film. It was #1 in all 27 countries where it opened (with the US as the exception).
