Skyfall seized the top spot at theaters in an admittedly slow weekend.  The most successful James Bond film of all time has held strong since its release nearly a month ago and once again became the biggest movie in America with $11 million in tickets sold.  The fact that this is the biggest Bond movie of all time isn't nearly as shocking as the margin of separation between Skyfall and the other recent Bond entries.   Worldwide, the final difference between Skyfall and Casino Royale could be $400 million dollars.  That is a staggering number.  I'm be lying if I said I understood the recipe for success here.  I have no earthly idea why Skyfall will outperform Royale and Quantum of Solace by nearly half a billion dollars.  All I can say is, lock Mendes down for another one, fast.
