BOND MOVIE BOX OFFICE GOES SKY- HIGH
SKYFALL IS THE BIGGEST EVER BOX OFFICE
BLOCKBUSTER IN THE UK BEATING
AVATAR’S LIFETIME GROSS
Bond booty … Daniel Craig in the box office smashing Skyfall SKYFALL has smashed a new record – with the biggest UK
box office haul of all time.
The Bond movie, starring Daniel Craig, has taken a massive
£94,277,612 after just 40 days on release.
It beats former record-holder Avatar, which had a lifetime
gross of £94,025, 632 – over 11 months of cinema release.
British director Sam Mendes directed the 007 hit, which also stars Javier Bardem as Bond villain Raoul Silva and Dame Judi Dench as M.
Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said: “We’re overwhelmed with gratitude to the cinema-going audiences in
the UK who have made Skyfall the highest grossing film of all time.
“We are very proud of this film and thank everybody,
especially Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes, who have contributed to its success.”
In September, Daniel Craig signed up to appear in two more
Bond movies – giving the franchise a Licence to Kill a few
more box office records.
