The box-office gods have opened the floodgates this weekend as Skyfall will break the record for the largest opening for a James Bond feature (currently $67.5 million from Quantum of Solace) and in limited release Lincoln is doing huge business. First for Bond, opening in 3,505 theaters with IMAX showings on Thursday ($2.2 million) and midnight showings Friday ($2.4 million), the film brought in an estimated total of $33 million with $80 million within reach at this point for the weekend and it's going to go on and on and on. Sony has a huge hit on their hands that will carry through to next weekend as well, all but assured by the "A" Cinemascore the film received from opening day audiences. Skyfall was already crushing it worldwide as it went into the weekend with $321 million internationally, which means it will probably end the weekend somewhere around $500 million worldwide. Good thing too, the budget on this »
