    By Kevin Wells on 2012-12-06

    40 days after being released to high critical praise Skyfall has risen to beat Avatar’s record setting £94 million at the UK box office. It took Avatar 11 months according to Empire to get to that record. The 23rd film in the 50 year-old franchise now sits at $871 million worldwide. $248 million comes from the US where (if only for today) Skyfall recaptured the lead at the box office from Twilight’s latest release.

    According to Box Office Mojo, Skyfall will easily pass $950 million worldwide before opening in China next year. Skyfall is also projected to cross $280 million in the United States by the end of its run.

  3. Billion Dollar Bond Within Reach?

    By Kevin Wells on 2012-11-26

    Time for another Skyfall Box Office update. Taking full advantage of the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, Skyfall supplanted Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale to become the biggest James Bond film ever in America. It currently sits at $221 million, which is well above Quantum of Solace’s previous record of $168 million. Skyfall took in another $36 million in its 3rd weekend which is quite impressive. That’s more than this year’s The Dark Knight Rises and actually places it 6th on the all-time “top 3rd weekend list” (yes there is a list for that). Box Office Mojo now predicts that Skyfall could pass $270 million.

    Worldwide, Skyfall has reached $790 million adding another $41.3 million to its tally outside of the US. This weekend it opened in Australia where Sony had their best-ever opening with $12.5 million. In the UK, its total has reached $144.5 million, only $5.5 million shy of the UK’s all-time record currently held by Avatar. According to Box Office Mojo, Skyfall should pass $900 million in its existing markets, but it still has Japan and China where the two could combine to push Bond over the one billion mark. In case you’re keeping track, adjusting worldwide figures is not a simple task, but if you simply take Thunderball’s $141 million (1965) and adjust at the US rate of inflation (consumer price index) that puts Thunderball at $1,036,887,630. Goldfinger (1964) would follow at $931,983,650. Skyfall currently ranks #3.

  5. Skyfall Still Flying Sky-High at the Box Office

    By Kevin Wells on 2012-11-19

    Skyfall’s second weekend in the United States dropped approximately 53% from the previous weekend, but still put up a healthy $41.5 million and carried 007’s 23rd adventure into the Top 10 for 2012 with $161 million. According to Box Office Mojo, Skyfall will pass Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace’s total US box office take by Wednesday making it the the #1 James Bond film in the United States. Skyfall is projected to easily pass $200 million and could even make a run for $250 million.

    Worldwide, Skyfall crushed its predecessors to become the #1 James Bond film (not adjusted for inflation). It also helped Sony Pictures post their biggest movie year ever, passing $4 billion with the help of The Amazing Spider-Man and Men in Black 3. MGM recently stated that they expect Skyfall to make $800 million, while last week Box Office Mojo predicted approximately $900 million. The film currently sits around $669 million.

    So how is Skyfall doing at home? It currently ranks #2 on UK’s all-time list passing Toy Story 3 and Titanic this week. Only Avatar stands in its way. Skyfall already owns “biggest UK opening weekend”, “fastest film to reach £50 million”, and “highest grossing film of the year in the UK” among (similar) others.

  9. Skyfall Dominates the Box Office

    By Kevin Wells on 2012-11-12

    The 23rd James Bond film, Skyfall, has taken in a hefty $87.8 million for its first weekend in the United States. Add in its Thursday IMAX premiere and Skyfall sits at a comfortable $90 million putting it on track to be the biggest Bond (not adjusted for inflation).

    Bond’s biggest triumph so far though is its overseas sales, so far racking up $428 million. Even adjusting for inflation that puts Skyfall in Bond’s overseas top 10 in a very small amount of time. According to Box Office Mojo, Skyfall has taken in $117.5 million in the UK alone making it the #1 film for the year in its home country and putting it on track to surpass Avatar’s $150 million all-time record.

    Add it all up and Skyfall is already sitting at $518.6 million worldwide, just shy of Casino Royale’s $599 million Bond record. Box Office Mojo is currently projecting Skyfall to make a run for over $900 million which would make Skyfall the third highest grossing Bond film (adjusted for inflation), perhaps shy of Goldfinger, but still behind Thunderball’s billion dollar record.
