5. ‘Skyfall’ sets James Bond record
Daniel Craig and Naomie Harris led the way at the box office this weekend! According to BoxOfficeMojo.com, the latest James Bond flick, Skyfall, pulled in $87 million domestically. But the action-packed spy flick did even better overseas, earning about $428.6 million worldwide.
It all totals up to the biggest James Bond opening ever! While James Bond has always been a popular franchise, movie producers didn’t think it would do quite this well.
“Skyfall blew past all expectations for the film," one Sony executive said. "[It was] the biggest juggernaut in the history of the James Bond franchise.”
