It was previously reported on CBn that Casino Royale was estimated to become the highest grossing film in the entire James Bond 007 series–breaking the current record held by 2002’s Die Another Day. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the record should be smashed within two weeks.
With a worldwide total currently exceeding $376 million (the final total for Die Another Day was $431 million), Mark Zucker, distribution president at Sony Pictures Releasing International said to expect Casino Royale to break the record by ‘the weekend after next.’
Contributing to Casino Royale‘s massive success at the box office are its several record-breaking openings around the world. Zucker additionally predicted that Casino Royale‘s international box office, which currently stands at $247 million, would surpass Die Another Day‘s final international total of $271 million by this week.
