Those Brits love their James Bond.
“Skyfall” has moved ahead of “Avatar” to become the biggest-selling movie in the history of British cinema. The latest Daniel Craig entry has pulled in £94.2 million in a little over a month of release.
“Avatar” previously held the record with £94 million, but it had the advantage of a 3D surcharge and had to stick around in theatres for 11 months to reach that marker.
Globally the film presently sits at around $870 million, far ahead of previous record holder “Casino Royale” with $599 million.
Within the next few days it will surpass “Ice Age: Continental Drift” to become the third highest worldwide grosser of the year behind only “The Avengers” and “The Dark Knight Rises.”
