This weekend saw Skyfall pass Casino Royale as the biggest grossing 007 movie of all time, notching up $669.2 million worldwide compared with $599.2 million for Casino Royale. The box office performance of Skyfall has helped push Sony Pictures past its previous 2009 best according to Jeff Blake, Sony’s chairman of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony.
However, while the figures appear to be impressive they are not inflation adjusted, meaning the real golden age of the James Bond films remains the 1960s, with Thunderball remaining in the number 1 spot. However, according to these figures adjusted to 2011, Skyfall actually lies some way behind both Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.
