1. James Bond Takes Second Place At US Box Office

    By Devin Zydel on 2008-11-23

    It was a very close race, but weekend estimates are giving James Bond second place at the US box office.

    According to MSN, Quantum of Solace grossed $27.4 million in its second weekend, just narrowly beating the $27 million debut of Disney’s Bolt.

    In what was a surprise to no one, Bond was pushed out of the #1 spot from last weekend thanks to the arrival of Summit Entertainment’s vampire romance Twilight, which amassed an impressive $70.6 million debut.

    Despite a harsh 59% drop from last weekend’s stunning $67.5 million debut, Quantum of Solace has remained a force to be reckoned with at the US box office. This weekend saw the Bond film pass the $100 million mark faster than any other film in the 007 series. It’s cumulative total stands at $109.5 million.

    ‘We’re in great shape. We’re way ahead of where we were with Casino Royale,’ said Rory Bruer, head of distribution for Sony. will keep you updated with all the latest Quantum of Solace coverage, including box office reports and more.
