"Skyfall" will shatter the record for the biggest James Bond movie debut ever, after taking in $30.8 million at the box office on Friday. That's an average of nearly $8,787 from each of the 3,505 theaters that the 23rd film in the 50-year-old 007 franchise is playing on. That could translate to an $80 million weekend. It received an "A" CinemaScore from first-day moviegoers, so word of mouth should be strong on Saturday and Sunday. "Skyfall" took in an additional $2.2 million from exclusive preview runs at 463 Imax and premium pricing locations on Thursday. Last week’s No. 1 film, Disney’s animated family film “Wreck-It Ralph,” was No. 2 on Friday, taking in $7.8 million from 3,752 screens. That puts it on track for a $32 million weekend and raises its overall gross to $68.4 million. »
