"Skyfall" returned James Bond to the basics, and British audiences have loved it. The movie opened huge and has only done better in the UK, and now has become the biggest British release of all time.
MGM and Sony have announced that the movie made £94,277,612 in only 40 days, which is roughly the equivalent of $151,720,961. That number places "Skyfall" at the top of the British all-time box office charts. The previous record holder was "Avatar," which made £94,025,632 during its 11 months in UK cinemas. Not too shabby for 007 considering "Avatar" is the most successful movie of all time.
Overall, "Skyfall" has made $246,712,819 in the United States and $869,712,819 worldwide. It's currently the fourth highest grossing movie of the year, trailing behind "Ice Age: Continental Drift" by only $5 million. "The Avengers" is the most successful film of the year with $1.5 billion, while "The Dark Knight Rises" made $1.08 billion.
