Consolidating its position as the most successful Bond movie ever, Skyfall has this weekend passed the $1 billion mark and stands at No 14 in the all-time global box office chart, just below The Dark Knight.

It's also become the first film in UK box office history to cross the £100 million barrier, making it Britain's biggest movie to date.

This latest adventure in the long-running franchise is Daniel Craig's third time in the role and sees Bond, Judi Dench's M, Ben Whishaw's Q and Naomie Harris's field agent Eve up against a memorable villain in the form of terrorist Raoul Silva, played by Javier Bardem.

Previous villains have often had plans for global destruction or seizing control of a vital commodity but for Silva, it was much more about revenge within the ranks of MI6.
