Ever since MGM’s financial woes of a few years ago, many observers wondered what would happen to the now 50-year-old James Bond movie franchise.
But, fear not, “Bond, James Bond” is back and already booming overseas — with high expectations for the U.S. opening of Skyfall on Friday November 9.
According to Ray Subers, writing for Box Office Mojo: “After a very strong start overseas its first weekend, Skyfall expanded its reach to nearly every foreign market and scored an unbelievable $156 million. The 23rd James Bond movie has already earned $287 million, which makes it the third-highest-grossing Bond movie ever behind Daniel Craig’s previous two entries, and its well on its way to setting a new franchise record.”
