Skyfall sets new highs for 007

Skyfall‘s opening weekend in the US saw it take $87.8 million in regular theatres, and with another $2.2 million from IMAX, was estimated to have ended the weekend reaching $90 million. This is a new record for the series and more than double the take of Casino Royale‘s debut in 2006.

Skyfall has now reached $518.6 million worldwide since the premiere in October but, as The Washington Post notes, is a long way off from matching the biggest audiences for 007; adjusted for inflation Goldfinger grossed $444 million in the US alone, while Thunderball remains unbeaten at 508 million.
