Skyfall gets close to Avatar’s UK box office record

While Skyfall may currently be in second place behind the latest Twilight film at the UK box office, the latest 007 adventure took  £3.8 million last week to total £89.6 million after five weekends and closing in on Avatar’s record of £93.4 million, according to article on Flickering Myth.

As of Monday Skyfall had reached $223 million in the United States after a strong showing over Thanksgiving, plus $571 million in the rest of world with box office takings worldwide now at $794,300,577.

If the film’s reported $200 million budget is correct and assuming the same figure has been spent marketing, Skyfall is clearly good news for Sony/MGM who financed the 23rd James Bond film.
