    A revised first US weekend total has come in for Quantum of Solace according to Reuters: $67.5 million.

    While slightly less than the previously estimated $70.4 million reported over the weekend, the total still makes Daniel Craig’s second James Bond film the highest grossing in the series during its opening weekend, surpassing the previous record of $47.1 million held by Die Another Day.

    As earlier reported, Quantum of Solace is expected to become the highest grossing James Bond film ever, inflation unadjusted, where Casino Royale‘s worldwide gross of $594.2 million is the current benchmark.

    Taking inflation into account, Thunderball is rhe clear film to beat in the series. It’s $141.2 million gross in 1965 is equivalent to almost $1 billion today.

    Other top earners that emerge when adjusted for inflation include: Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice, Live and Let Die, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.
