The 23rd James Bond movie Skyfall (MGM/Sony), starring Daniel Craig and directed by Sam Mendes, continues to bring in big business as well. Domestically, it dropped 53% to second place with $41.5 million and a $161.3 million total, but internationally it brought in $49.6 million for an overseas total of $508 million and a global total of $669 million, setting a new record for the franchise as it passed Casino Royale’s global take of just under $600 million. The drop for Skyfall domestically in its IMAX runs wasn’t as big, down just 45% from last week as they accounted for $6 million of the weekend take bringing the movie’s worldwide IMAX total to $39 million. This has helped Sony have one of its best year in history, having already grossed over $4 billion worldwide.
