    To get Daniel Day Lewis it would have to be the best bond script ever as he is so picky with roles and has never really done a big franchise blockbuster. Also big box office success does not always mean great actors are attracted to the franchise. Hopefully Sony does not get ahead of it's self and throw money at it and make it a bloated mess like a lot of follow ups to big movies are i mean look at quantum of solace for example.
  • I've honestly never heard of Michel Vaillant but I'm fairly confident that even the Belgian grosses of the average Bond film would be enough to decimate its laughable 900k. Or does this list not go back further than 1987?
    Michel Vaillant is a Luc Besson movie that made far more than this 900k which must be a typo (in France only, already 1M viewers = about 7M$). It was also seemingly popular in Russia, a country whose box office is sometimes so weird you wonder if it's not full of typos too :)

    However, even if I made a post to explain the limit of taking into account the inflation (see my comment about LALD), I feel that on this list, to see the A-Team above LTK, or to see Indiana Jones behind QOS, or DAD above the first Batman, etc, does not feel right.

    Can you give me the real figures of Michel Vaillaint? Total world wide gross? I cannot find them...

    What Indy film are you hoping to beat QoS? I feel I already know the answer...

    I don't have them either, which means it was not very high indeed if Europacorp made no announcement. But France only is already 7M$ for sure (a bit more than 800.000 viewers);
    Also despite being a film with the hero's name, it's not really comparable to 007. It's for race car fetichists, one would say.

    Well now I want to watch it.

    Can PLEASE someone give me the total gross of Michel Vaillant :-P? By the way, looking at the official comic book website of Vaillant http://www.michelvaillant.com/ makes me think this could be turned into one hell of a movie franchise. Why is MGM not picking this up? Or Warner Brothers, Sony Pictures, Paramount....

    1.007 billion would be a lovely final gross!

    Well, grosses are actually given by the studios themselves, not by a independent entity, so for big hits, no problem to have them, but for failures...
    The only indication I found is an interview quoted in some comment on the Internet, according to which Besson said that thanks to the foreign markets and the DVDs, Europacorp made 2.5M$ of profit from its 25M$ budget... Ok, you can call that a flop :)

    I found this in imdb about daniel.

    Skyfall (2012) $17,000,000 plus bonuses for certain box-office milestones.
    I wonder how much tax he has to pay on this?

    And unlike many fabulously wealthy stars, he has always paid his dues. The most recent accounts for his companies show that he paid well over £1 million in corporation tax over two years.

  • As of November 30, now worldwide $805,136,889.
  • "@boxofficemojo Weekend Estimates: 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' - $17.41M, 'Skyfall $17M""
    Less than half a million between them. There's actually a chance that when the actuals come in, Skyfall could actually be number one o.O this shows how fickle the Twilight audience are, all 14 year old girls who went opening weekend. Skyfall has had a much broader appeal. Do you guys think that without any new releases next weekend, Twilight will drop behind Bond?

    Another update of the 'Spy/Action Movies-list'. Well, it's very clear now. 'Skyfall' rocks. Financially for sure. It now moved up to 3rd place, leaving Christopher Nolan's 'Inception' behind now. It now only has to compete with the last two Batman films. The foreign gross is also an all time record, almost overtaking 'The Dark Knight Rises'

    Furthermore, I have updated the list in such a way now, so that you can also use it as a 'watchlist'. Movies with a '▪' are part of a spy/actionhero movie franchise. Movies with a '▫' are rebooted movies or remakes. Movies with a '∞' are based on previous tv-series.

    It is interesting to see what has happened through the years after James Bond found its way to cinema audiences. TV-series were created, like 'Mission: Impossible', 'Get Smart', 'Starsky & Hutch', 'The A-Team', 'I Spy', that were later turned into movies again. These series usually had a similar premise to the James Bond films: Save the world from crazy figures.

    Later movies, like the rebooted Batman films, were hugely influenced by James Bond, to such an extend that the actual superhero looked, walked, drove....lived like a possible James Bond. Summarizing: James Bond is one hell of an inspiring person ;-).

    And with 'Skyfall', James Bond keeps inspiring and stays the biggest spy franchise of the planet. Next step? How close towards $ 1 billion will 'Skyfall' get? Samuel001? Where is your List of inflation adjusted Bond films ;-)? *UPDATED SUNDAY DECEMBER 2ND 2012*:

    "@boxofficemojo Weekend Estimates: 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' - $17.41M, 'Skyfall $17M""
    Less than half a million between them. There's actually a chance that when the actuals come in, Skyfall could actually be number one o.O this shows how fickle the Twilight audience are, all 14 year old girls who went opening weekend. Skyfall has had a much broader appeal. Do you guys think that without any new releases next weekend, Twilight will drop behind Bond?

    Bond may overtake Twilight for no.1 next weekend as there is only one wide release in playing for keeps it wil only open to around $5 to $7 mil next weekend. Next weekend twilight will be downs about 50% to around to $9 mil it's holding up better then the previous twilight film.Bond will hold better dropping say 40% to 45% for around 9.5 to 10 mil next weekend beating twilight. Although there is a chance Lincoln could expand next weekend and take no 1 as it is a great film Oscar worthy about one of Americas greatest political leaders and has proven very popular so far with small drops despite a some what limited release with $83 mil so far.The first two weekend of December are the calm before the storm and we all no what that storm is lol.

    My predictions for next weekend US

    1. Skyfall- $10 mil
    2. Twilight-$9.2 mil
    3. Lincoln $ 9 mil if it expands to a few hundred more theatres it will win next weekend

    "MGM and Sony's Skyfall continued to impress, grossed $17 million in its fourth weekend for a North American cume of $246 million. Overseas, it earned another $34 million for an international cume of $623 million and worldwide total of $869 million."

    Just saw that one, too. How/where did the $52 million come from in the past few hours?

    Ok, seeing as the China release may happen in Feb or March of 2013, does anyone have a figure in mind as to SF's total minus Chona's takings?

    It's worth noting that this is the first week since the US release that Skyfall hasn't grossed 100 million+ since the previous weekend.
