As expected, the film’s North American debut went extremely well , earning a total of $90 million since Friday – bringing its worldwide total earnings to an impressive $518.6 million.
“Skyfall blew past all expectations for the film,” a Sony executive told Deadline of the film, before adding that it’s “the biggest juggernaut in the history of the James Bond franchise.”
Also opening this weekend was the Steven Spielberg-directed and Daniel Day-Lewis-starring drama Lincoln, which, though just released to eleven theaters across the country, managed to pull in a whopping $900,000 over the weekend. The film will gain wide release next Friday.
