    Box Office Mojo reports that Casino Royale has maintained the #1 spot at the foreign box office for the fourth straight weekend.

    Taking in $35.5 million from 64 territories brought the international total for Daniel Craig’s first James Bond film up to $246.5 million. Contributing to this total were openings in 10 new markets, where Casino Royale set franchise records in every single one.

    Australia and New Zealand were the two strongest new openings for Casino Royale, where it took in $5.41 million and $836,778 respectively. Other openings included Mexico with $1.5 million, Argentina with $314,002 and Colombia with $320,589.

    However, it was in the UK where Casino Royale had its highest-grossing weekend, taking in $5.43 million. With over $80 million in total at the UK box office alone, Casino Royale smashed the record previously held by Die Another Day, which grossed roughly $59 million in its entire UK box office run.
