Deadline reports that the latest film in the James Bond franchise, SKYFALL, has now surpassed Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 as the biggest 7-day gross of all time in the UK, with box office takes totaling $59.86M.
The 23rd James Bond film opened last Friday, October 26, and was Britain’s 2D all-time biggest Friday opener and 2D biggest opening weekend. 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.
Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace and Tonia Sotiropoulou star in the film, which hits international theaters on October 26, domestic IMAX theaters on November 8, and conventional theaters on November 9.
