‘Skyfall’ Becomes #1 Movie Of All Time At The U.K. Box Office
Entertainment

A rather large majority of Bond fans will agree that Skyfall is one of the best James Bond movies to ever hit theaters, and now the film has the box office crown to prove it.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Skyfall has surpassed Avatar as the top-grossing picture in the history of the U.K. box office.

The site is reporting that the movie recently reached £94.3 million ($151.8 million) after 40 days in theaters.

Speaking on the accomplishment, Sony Pictures Releasing U.K. managing director Peter Taylor said:

“It seems particularly fitting in 2012 that the latest James Bond adventure should become the highest grossing movie ever marking the fiftieth anniversary of one of our truly iconic cultural characters in record breaking style.”

The 007 franchise has certainly reestablished itself as a dominant force in cinema, and with another Bond movie set for 2014  we can definitely expect this box office record to fall yet again.

Occasionally Twitter is simply noxious. It brings out the worst in people and allows some to act as righteous crusaders for justice when, in reality, they’re merely superficial cogs ignoring the real issues. This was never truer than the lame attempt to deprive America of one of its smartest and most progressive satirists. Every night […]
