Skyfall is starting to garner an avalanche of anticipation and excitement from critics and audiences alike. According to the latest article from Chicago Tribune, Skyfall already shattered the UK record for Monday box office hits, garnering $6.8 million. There is no doubt that this new James Bond movie is full of action, drama and hard-hitting scenes that will surely take your breath away. Skyfall is yet to open in the United States on November 8th 2012 but it seems that it is already doing well in other countries. Let’s check out more news for this latest James Bond movie: Skyfall
“Skyfall: Garnering More and More Fans Plus An Avalanche of Praise
The 23rd adventure of her majesty’s greatest spy premiered over the weekend in 25 foreign markets, including Bond’s native U.K., and took in an impressive $77.7 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
That figure puts “Skyfall” significantly in front of the previous two installments from current Bond, Daniel Craig, “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace,” in most of those foreign markets.
Two weeks out from its U.S. debut, “Skyfall” may be the latest 007 movie on track to out-earn both “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace,” which totaled $427 million and $418 million, respectively.
In the fight to be the highest grossing movie of 2012, “Skyfall” won’t have the added benefit of 3-D surcharges like “The Avengers” did, but with an early Stateside IMAX release on November 8, Bond could get a boost from the more expensive tickets, as he did in the European markets.
The James Bond series of films have always been a box office force to be reckoned with. The 50-year-old franchise has taken in $5 billion to date, and two more installments staring Craig are already planned.
By all accounts, “Skyfall” is destined for an enormous box-office total. The impressive take in the overseas markets are only the most recent indicator of the financial and cultural return of the series, which took four years off — double the typical beak — due largely to MGM’s bankruptcy.
Many of the early reviews have declared “Skyfall” one of the best films in the series and praised Craig’s performance, as well as the villainous turn from Javier Bardem.”
