Latest James Bond film enjoys highest ever opening for a 007 movie in the Us, taking an estimated $89m in its first weekend
New James Bond film Skyfall took an estimated $89m (£55m) during its first weekend at the Us box office – the highest ever opening for a 007 movie in the States – and broke the $500m (£314m) mark worldwide.
The higher than expected take for the 23rd Bond film put Skyfall well on course to take the mantle of the highest-grossing instalment in the long-running spy series, ahead of Casino Royale's $594m (£373m) in 2006. Daniel Craig's third outing as Bond remains at the top of the box office across Europe and is also performing well in Brazil, India and Mexico.
