If someone asks 'Who would win in a fight between James Bond and Batman?,' you may want to bet on Bond. The latest James Bond film, "Skyfall," has officially topped trilogy-closing "The Dark Knight Rises" at the worldwide box office.

After recently opening in China, "Skyfall" saw its global grosses rise to $1.094 billion. That's already ahead of "Dark Knight Rises'" $1.081 billion, and Bond still has a little gas left in its tank.

"Avatar" remains the all-time global gross leader with $2.782 billion, followed by "Titanic," "The Avengers," "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King."

Making the 2D-only "Skyfall" performance even more impressive, all of those films were originally released in 3D except "Lord of the Rings" and "Titanic" (which had a recent 3D re-release to boost its already impressive tally).

Batman still has the edge in the U. »
