Skyfall close to $800 million after bumper Thanksgiving box office

Skyfall received a huge boost over the Thanksgiving weekend thanks to a new box office record for all movies during the US holiday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The five day period between Wednesday night and Sunday saw the new Bond movie add another $51 for a total of $221.7 million in the US, the first James Bond film to break the $200 million barrier. Adding that to the take from the rest of the world puts Skyfall on an estimated $790.1 million, with $49 million coming from IMAX screenings.

To put it into perspective, Casino Royale took $599 million worldwide, while the figure for Quantum of Solace stands at $586 million. While figures are not adjusted for inflation, Skyfall must certainly be performing above expectations for the Eon Productions and the various studios involved.
