Skyfall becomes UK’s biggest earning film

Skyfall has become the UK’s biggest earning film ever after taking £102.8 million at the UK box office, overtaking previous top earners Avatar and Titanic on £94.0 million and £80.1 million respectively.

2012 turned out to be the third best year for box office admissions in forty years according to British Film Institute figures, which also notes that the demographic of cinema goers has changed; for the first time ever the above 45 year old made up more thana third of the total audience in 36 percent, while the 15-24 year old audience fell from 31 percent to 25 percent.

This change has been attributed to the number of films aimed at the older demographic and it remains to be seen whether this forms a long term trends as studios continue to make fewer but higher budget films that many see as a dumbing down of the industry.
