Well, it seems that the Internationals had it right this whole time. They had already made the newest 007 movie, Skyfall, over $230mil dollars before it had a chance to premiere in the States; and Bond opened with a bang! The Sam Mendes directed, Daniel Craig starring, Skyfall, had a $90mil opening this past weekend, bringing it’s total Box Office earnings to over $500 million worldwide! This makes it the biggest Bond movie OF ALL TIME! For a 50 year old franchise, I’d say they’re doing really well.
Going up against Bond was Wreck-It-Ralph, which still managed to bring in $33 mil, and securing it at #2. The rest of the Top 10 didn’t fare so well. Though, Hotel Transylvania has managed to keep it’s head up, and maintaining it’s spot at #10. Next week though, Bond will have some trouble. It will be going up against the final Twilight installment, Breaking Dawn: Part 2; and even though I will forever love 007, it’s not likely it will stay #1.
