BOX OFFICE: SKYFALL Looks Likely To Drop 60% As The Final TWILIGHT Dominates

In hindsight, it may not have been the best idea for Sony Pictures to release Skyfall just a week before the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. Why? Well, it is now thought that the Sam Mendes helmed film has suffered a drop of 60% this weekend. Read on for details!


It's finally over. Well, until they reboot it or find a way to make another instalment that is! This weekend, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 has sunk its fangs into the North American box office with $72.1 million on Friday (including Thursday 10pm/Friday midnight screenings) and an estimated global cume of $275 million by close of business on Sunday. Back in the US, it's thought that it will take around $135 million, but that is fact LESS than the previous instalment! Of course, it's Skyfall that really suffered this weekend, dropping 60% for $12.3 million on Friday and a predicted $40+ million total for the weekend. That's not too bad, especially as this will take its current total to $160 million since it opened last Friday. Sony Pictures continue to predict that the critically acclaimed Bond movie will make upwards of $800 million worldwide by the end of its run.






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.
