‘Skyfall’ Dominates The Box Office

The highly anticipated Skyfall film opened in theatres this weekend with a bang and was the largest debut ever for a 007 film (both unadjusted and adjusted for ticket price inflation). Skyfall brought in a whopping $87.8 million, quite obviously earning the top spot at the box office this weekend.

This was also the the seventh largest opening weekend gross of all-time for the month of November. Ahead of Skyfall in this category are only Twilight and Harry Potter movies. I haven’t yet seen the film, but all I’ve heard is good things, with Facebook statuses like, “Skyfall…worth every penny.” Did you watch Skyfall this weekend? If so, share your thoughts in the comments on what you thought in comparison to past Bond films.

In second place this weekend was Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph which opened last weekend. The film brought it an additional $33 million this weekend taking it’s total to an estimated $93.7 million. Find out how the other films did in the top 10 list below.
