BOX OFFICE: SKYFALL To Surpass $100M Overseas This Week
The critically acclaimed 23rd James Bond film won't be released in US theaters until November 9th (and IMAX theaters the day before), but Skyfall has already grossed over $96 million overseas and is expected to pass $100M by Thursday. Hit the jump for more details.
After having the biggest opening weekend in the UK (grossing $32.4M this past weekend), Sony Pictures and MGM's Skyfall continues to be a success at the box office before it opens in North America. The 23rd adventure of James Bond, directed by Sam Mendes, has currently grossed $96.5M in less than a week in overseas locations. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is expected to cross the $100M mark by Thursday. Skyfall has also set a new record for a gross on Monday in the UK, reaching $6.8M and beating the record previously set by Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2. Additionally, the movie made $386,000 in Brazil. That's over 80% ahead of what the last James Bond film, Quantum Of Solace, made in four days in the country with its %3.6 million. Skyfall's four day cume in France is $12.8M, $9.2M in Russia and $6.5M in South Korea.
Skyfall will be released in North American IMAX theaters on November 8th, and will arrive in conventional theaters the next day.
