  1. Good Start For Skyfall in China

    Skyfall is winding down at the US box office and movie theaters across the world, but in China it just opened on Monday adding another $5.1 million to its total gross. That’s three times what Quantum of Solace did and a good 14% increase over The Dark Knight Rises which also opened in China on a Monday. Factoring this in to Skyfall’s worldwide total, it currently sits at $1.046 billion.

    This past weekend Skyfall passed the $300 million mark in the United States.

  3. Adele wins Golden Globe for SKYFALL title song

    So, Adele keeps on being a award magnet – her SKYFALL title song scored the Golden Globe last night. Well, it would have been an upset if it hadn´t, judging from the lackluster competition.

    Now on, to the Oscars! And by the way, if the rumors are right Daniel Craig wants her and Mendes to come back for Bond 24. That, however, is less of a surprise than Jodie Foster´s remark about Daniel Craig´s behind during her acceptance speech.

    Here´s the list of the winners: http://www.deadline.com/2013/01/golden-globes-2013-winners-list/

  4. Skyfall Tops Thunderball

    jbbr_skyfall_imax_posterIt’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.

  5. 2 CRITICS CHOICE AWARDS go to SKYFALL

    The Critics Choice Awards have been given out to Daniel Craig for BEST ACTOR IN AN ACTION MOVIE, and SKYFALL for BEST ACTION FILM. That´s especially nice after the Oscars shut out SKYFALL from the main categories. The latest 007 adventure triumphed at the CCA over fellow worthy nominees THE AVENGERS, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and LOOPER. Pretty nice, even if Javier Bardem, Judi Dench and Roger Deakins lost in their categories.

  6. 5 Oscar nominations for SKYFALL

    Well, no Best Picture nomination for SKYFALL, and no acting nomination either.

    But the recent 007 adventure scored in these categories:

    BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY (Roger Deakins), BEST ORIGINAL SCORE (Thomas Newman) BEST ORIGINAL SONG (Adele), BEST ORIGINAL SOUND MIXING and BEST ORIGINAL SOUND EDITING.

    Stil, the Oscars will honor James Bond with a special tribute!

  7. SKYFALL scores 8 BAFTA nominations

    The BAFTAs love 007 this year: SKYFALL is nominated in eight categories, including Best Supporting Actor/Actress (Javier Bardem/Judi Dench), Best Cinematography (Roger Deakins) and Best Original Score (Thomas Newman).

    In a year that has lots of strong contenders, managing to get in there with the big guns of “Lincoln”, “Django Unchained”, “Zero Dark Thirty”, “Life of Pi” and “Les Misérables” is quite a feat for a 23rd installment of a spy franchise.
