Skyfall Scores $30.5 Million in North American Debut

Source: ERC Box Office, ComingSoon

November 10, 2012

According to early estimates, MGM and Sony Pictures' 23rd James Bond movie Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig, brought in $30.5 million in its first full day in North American theaters after making $2.2 million on Thursday from its opening day in IMAX theaters.

It's looking to be heading towards an opening weekend of somewhere between $82 and 87 million (including Thursday) which will be added to the $321 million it has already made internationally. With that in mind, it's guaranteed to cross the $400 million mark globally.

For comparison, its predecessor Quantum of Solace grossed $586 million over its entire run in domestic and international markets combined and Skyfall is likely to pass that mark by the end of the month, if not earlier.

Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, also had a great first day in just 11 theaters where it grossed an estimated $275 thousand heading towards an opening weekend of over $900 thousand before opening wide on November 16.

Look for our full weekend box office report tomorrow.

I liked it, but it was WAY too long. They needed to lose 20-30 minutes somewhere.

Spoiler: show
Kinda surprised they killed off Dench. I guess she was getting tired of the role.

She's actually dealing with some health issues. Initially I thought she was retiring from acting, but apparently she debunked last Feb
. I've heard quite a bit about the length and I thought it was fine. Definitely looking forward to the next installment and what direction they take it. I really hope they don't go back to the old formula with it.

saw it over the weekend on my "date night". I enjoyed the film, but there are quite a few things about the film that just bother me.

things like:
Spoiler: show
M is now a man. Granted Ralph Fiennes is more than qualified to fill the role but M is a woman. Always.

The new Moneypenny. Something about her and her new relationship with Bond just doesn't feel right.

Q, again, just doesn't feel right. I liked him well enough. And I especially loved the banter and nod to the past in their initial meeting, but this character is more of a tech guru than a true Quartermaster. Give me a new Q please.

The odd homoerotic sequence between Daniel Craig and Javiar Bardeem. It was uncomfortable and unneccesary. If it was a bigger plot point or visited again during the final fight, fine, but as it was, pointless.

the final fight on James childhood doorstep. As a Bond action sequence, it was fun. But it just seemed endlessly drawn out.


Granted, that is all very nit-picky. And I did enjoy the film. I'll happily add it to my Bond BluRay collection.

But at this point, I expected more out of this Bond generation.

I'll give it a B/B+

You do know M was a man for most of the movies? Dench didn't take over until the 90's.

Yes, but she has been so damned perfect in the role that at this point, M IS a woman.
