Internationally, the 23rd James Bond movie Skyfall (Sony/MGM) continued to do well, bringing in an additional $156 million this weekend in dozens of countries outside North America, taking its global total to $287 million after ten days. The biggest opening was in Germany, where the movie grossed $23.9 million, the biggest opening of the year for that country, doing significantly better than the previous two Bond movies. Italy took in $7.9 million, the biggest opening for a Hollywood film in that country this year. Switzerland had the biggest opening of all time with $5.3 million, surpassing Quantum of Solace’s previous record–which is somewhat funny since the previous Bond was directed by Swiss filmmaker Marc Forster–while Holland and Austria also set opening records for the year with $4.4 and $3.4 million, respectively. Daniel Craig’s third outing as Bond opens in North American IMAX theaters on Thursday, November 8 and in conventional theaters on November 9.
