It's one thing to be the biggest film of the year, it's quite another to be the biggest film of all time. It's no mean feat but considering how much hype preceded the movie and how much we enjoyed it when it finally came out, we're not half surprised by the announcement that the 23rd installment of the Bond franchise - Skyfall - has just broken a record as the highest grossing film of all time. Of. All. Time.(Well, in the UK - although adding that bit on makes it sound slightly less impressive)
So how much mula are we talking here? Well within just 40 days of its initial release, Skyfall has now taken in a mahoosive £94,277,612 at the UK box office, knocking Avatar of the top spot where it has sat comfortably for quite some time now.
In response to this news, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said "We're overwhelmed with gratitude to the cinema-going audiences in the UK who have made Skyfall the highest grossing film of all time. We are very proud of this film and thank everybody, especially Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes, who have contributed to its success."
"I am incredibly proud of the amazing heights to which this film continues to soar and wish to again congratulate all involved on reaching such a tremendous milestone," said Gary Barber, Chairman and CEO, MGM.
So what kind of movie do you think it will take to trump Skyfall? Another Bond flick? The Hobbit? Avatar 2? The Justice League?
