IS “SKYFALL” ON TRACK FOR A $100 MILLION?


Can a James Bond movie gross $100 million over just three-days? Never say never, but Sam Mendes’ “Skyfall” could come awfully close. The critically acclaimed 23rd 007 film opened in 436
IMAX theaters yesterday grossing $2.2 million. It then
debuted at midnight nationwide taking in $2.4 million.
That means “Skyfall” already had $4.6 million before
regular engagements started today. Pre-release polling
has been off the charts for the Eon Productions, MGM and Sony Pictures thriller for weeks and based on
the intensity of today’s matinees, some rival studios
are projecting a $105-110 million weekend. Others are
guessing something closer to $80-90 million, but either
way it will absolutely be the biggest opening for a
James Bond movie in the United States ever. In the rest of the world “Skyfall” is already a smash
finding $323 million and $85 million in the U.K.
alone (the later figure more than “The Avengers” total
British cume). The last two Bond films, “Casino
Royale” and “Quantum of Solace,” made $167.4 and
$168.3 million in the U.S. respectively. There are no other wide openings this weekend.
“Lincoln” opens in 11 theaters. “A Royal Affair” debuts
in just Los Angeles and New York.
