It’s been storming the UK box-office ever since it was released on October 26th and now, just 6 weeks later, it’s officially taken the #1 spot from James Cameron’s 2009 movie Avatar. This feat is rather impressive especially since the takings for Skyfall are minus any 3D sales since the movie was shot in the traditional way. Both films did find a home at IMAX so ticket sales will have been slightly higher there but it’s the 3d element that has really impressed.
Avatar’s total was previously held at £94m and Skyfall has now made the rather precise figure of 94,277,612 in just 40 days. So pleased this movie has done so well. It’s gone back to simple film-making with a simple story told brilliantly by all involved. Surely with this latest news, Director Sam Mendes is a dead cert to return in James Bond 24?
