Breaking… Sony Pictures today announced its biggest movie year ever at the global box office, passing $4 billion for the first time in the studio’s history. Thanks in large part to Skyfall becoming the biggest 007 film of all time (not adjusted for inflation, higher ticket prices, or IMAX premiums.) This weekend, the 23rd James Bond actioner grabbed a global cume of $669.2M and passed the $599.2M worldwide total taken in by Casino Royale in 2006. The box office success of Skyfall helped to push Sony Pictures past its previous high $3.585B set in 2009. The announcement was made by Jeff Blake, chairman of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures. “Exceeding $4 billion globally is a true rarity in this industry and it’s an extraordinary accomplishment for all of us at Sony Pictures,” Blake said in a statement.
