1. Casino Royale Set To Become Most Successful Overseas Bond Film

    By Devin Zydel on 2006-12-05

    Record-breaking is a term that accurately describes the success of Casino Royale‘s openings in several premieres around the world. Reuters reports that yet another record is set to be broken by the 21st official James Bond film: the most successful 007 film overseas.

    The film has earned nearly $200 million from the overseas box office, and Sony executives are predicting a final foreign gross of ‘up toward the mid-$300 millions.’ Such a feat would make Casino Royale the most successful Bond film overseas, beating the current record of $271 million held by 2002’s Die Another Day.

    CBn previously reported that Casino Royale earned £5.3 million (about $10.5 million) in its third week, adding to a grand total of over £37 million, ($70 milllion+) more than the take of any previous James Bond film.

    Casino Royale will open in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, and Hungary this upcoming weekend.
