As you can see from the Tweet below, Skyfall has now taken over $100 million in North America after only 5 days of release. As we told you this past weekend, the Sam Mendes helmed film has become the highest grossing Bond movie of all-time in the US (as well as in the UK) and may just end up becoming the first instalment in the franchise to surpass $1 billion. Be sure to stay tuned for further updates on its progress! You can read my 5* review of Skyfall by clicking HERE.

Daniel Craig is back as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 in SKYFALL™, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In SKYFALL, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. The film is from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Directed by Sam Mendes. Produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. Written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and John Logan.

@IM53 apparently Finney's character was written with Connery in mind to play the part, but they changed their mind about it because it might confuse the audience if they brought him back into the series as another character (and that he'd also steal the spotlight from the rest of the film).

The gay stuff Silva (Bardem) did to Bond was super creepy which made him an even more slimy villain..Good Stuff..Another vile baddie by Bardem.

Not saying gay stuff is super creepy if a guy did that to a girl it would have been inappropriate as well..but Bond had to hate that & thats why Silva did it.

Great movie,overall.
