SKYFALL BREAKS BOX OFFICE RECORD IN U.K.

December 5, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

The James Bond movie Skyfall is bigger than Avatar — at least in the U.K. After five weeks and five days in release, the 23rd Bond adventure has earned £94.3 million (about $152 million), breaking the British box office record of £94 million set by Avatar over seven months in theaters in 2009. Worldwide, Skyfall has thus far earned $870 million, quite a distance away from Avatar‘s record of $2.8 billion. In a statement announcing the British milestone, Skyfall‘s co-producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, said, “We are very proud of this film and thank everybody, especially Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes, who have contributed to its success.”
