‘Skyfall’ Becomes The Most Successful British Film By Taking £94 Million

The 23rd Bond movie breaks record in just 40 days…

Despite having 24 errors picked up by hardcore film fans, ‘Skyfall’ has smashed British records by becoming the highest grossing film by taking a whopping £94.3 million.

The movie, which was released last month, is the 23rd Bond movie and stars Daniel Craig as the 007, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem and Naomie Harris.

‘Skyfall’ has eclipsed James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’, which in just under a year managed to take home £94 million.

According to reports, the new figures don’t take into consideration inflation, but co-producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are incredibly proud of the new movie.

“'We are very proud of this film and thank everybody, especially Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes, who have contributed to its success,” they said.

Bond 24 is already in the works, although it is unclear if Sam Mendes will return as its director, but with it bagging $870 million in ticket sales worldwide, according to Boxofficemojo.com, it would be hard to pass up surely?

But ‘Skyfall’ has some way to go to be ‘Avatar’ on a worldwide stage, where the 3D epic has netted $2.8 billion.

Daniel Craig is set to reprise the role of James Bond for a further two films, and has reportedly signed a deal that will bring him home £31 million.

He was reportedly paid £10.7 million for the latest movie, which is a good improvement on what his 007 predecessor was paid. Pierce Brosnan was reportedly paid £7.5 million for 1999’s ‘The World Is Not Enough’ and £10.3 for 2002’s ‘Die Another Day’.
