James Bond made a triumphant return this year with Skyfall, which received an extremely positive response from both film critics and avid fans of the 007 franchise. And now the film has done what no other Bond flick has ever managed to do by making over $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
Joining films such as The Avengers and The Dark Knight, Skyfall is now the 14th movie to reach that milestone, with a worldwide gross of $1,000,200,000.
In fact, of the 14 movies on the list, 10 of them have made over $1 billion since 2008. We can thank inflated ticket prices and costly gimmicks, like 3D and IMAX for that.
Regardless, $1 billion is a very impressive number being that Skyfall didn’t have 3D ticket prices to take advantage of!
