Variety reports that the internatonal box office for Casino Royale has once again helped push the film past two more milestones: the $400 million barrier, and more importantly, the international box office record for the James Bond series.
As reported on CBn here, Casino Royale‘s new international total of $280.3 million has become the most successful Bond film internationally, breaking the record of $271 million, which was held by Die Another Day.
While this was the first frame where the film was not #1 internationally, Casino Royale still posted strong numbers in several markets.
In Germany, the film made $3.2 million, $2.95 in the UK (for an already Bond record breaking overall total of $85 million+), $2.9 million in Australia and $1.6 million in France. It opened #1 in Brazil with $1.3 million.
With a current worldwide total of $417.8 million, (just $13.4 million of breaking the overall box office record held by Die Another Day) Casino Royale is yet to open in both Italy and South Korea.
