Skyfall Success Translates Stateside!



In the UK alone within its first two weeks of release, Bond’s 50th anniverary outing has gone down a storm. Skyfall directed by American Beauty’s Sam Mendes has already become the biggest box office grosser of 2012 with $57 million, surpassing The Dark Knight Rises and within it’s own confines every other 007 installment (Casino Royale’s $55.6 the previous holder).

With no other wide release up against the might of the MI6 agent, the character’s 23rd adventure ran rampant in the US to continue it’s rich vein of form. Smashing records once again, the film took an estimated $87.8 million to easily take top spot and end the reign of Disney’s Wreck It Ralph (2nd position with $33.1 million)
