    Dammit, Max, you beat me to it.

    Here's a link:

    BTW, Parachute, you're right. Which is why I prefer the french system of counting the tickets sold instead of the money a movie makes at the box office. It gives us a more exact view of a movie's success or failure.

    :D
    Only 52000 tickets away from beating Goldfinger and thus becoming the most successful Bond movie in France. Skyfall can do it with Xmas and the holidays.
    7 millions tickets would be nice.

    Well, people say the UK loves Bond. It's overseas neighbour The Netherlands loves it too! Look at these figures:

    http://www.boxofficemojo.com/intl/netherlands/opening/

    Interesting figures about the yearly box office results so far:
    http://www.boxofficemojo.com/intl/netherlands/yearly/

    2003 (In January 2003 'Die Another Day' premiered):
    'Die Another Day' was the 4th highest grossing movie of 2003 with $7,348,890. 'The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King' 1st with $19,162,315. 'Finding Nemo' 2nd with $10,529,033. 'The Matrix Reloaded' 3rd with $7,679,057.

    2006:
    'Casino Royale' was the 2nd highest grossing movie of 2006 with $10,559,951. 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' was 1st with $13,220,674

    2008:
    Again, a Bond movie was 2nd. 'Quantum Of Solace' took $8,856,996 at the Dutch box office. But 1st was 'Mamma Mia!' with $9,812,663.

    2012:
    Thunderball-times for 'Skyfall'. No doubt about it. If you defeat franchises like 'The Lord Of The Rings', 'Harry Potter', 'The Twilight Saga', 'Titanic', 'Avatar', 'The Dark Knight', 'Jason Bourne', 'Pirates' and 'Star Wars'.....with a massive Dutch box office figure of $20,387,869 thus far, you are creating Connery-madness.

    It is interesting to see that 'Die Another Day' wasn't creating the Bond buzz that it did in other countries. Same with 'Quantum'. Still massive figures. But what 'Skyfall' is still doing in The Netherlands is simply astonishing.

    I'd say: Time to shoot some scenes in Holland for Bond 24. We deserve it :P.

    A perfect opportunity to show how the exchange rate is confusing things. Netherlands has Euro, not dollars ! And then (if Box Office Mojo is correct, which is not always the case...)

    2003 (I chose 1 $ = 0.92 €, averaging the first months of the year)
    'Die Another Day' was the 4th highest grossing movie of 2003 with 6.7M€. 'The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King' 1st with 17.5M€

    2006 (1$ = 0.77€, averaging the last months)
    'Casino Royale' was the 2nd highest grossing movie of 2006 with 8.1M€. 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' was 1st with 10M€

    2008(1$ = 0.72€, last months)
    Again, a Bond movie was 2nd. 'Quantum Of Solace' took 6.3M€ at the Dutch box office. But 1st was 'Mamma Mia!' with 7M€.

    2012 (1$ = 0.76€, last months)
    'Skyfall' has a massive Dutch box office figure of 15.2M€ thus far....

    Oops in the currency of the country, you're 15% behind Return of the King now, and not even taking inflation into account (which add another 15% at least) ! Same figures, opposite conclusion if you really want to compare ! Personally, I would "just" say that both ROTK and SF were/are very, very successful in your country !

    And DAD was more successful than QOS in your country if you look at the € (which is something that is not straightforward IMO, but I write it for the sake of it), contrary to what the $ figures told you...
  • Now over 952,200,000.

    So far the Craig 'triplet' of Bonds has brought the franchise nothing but gold. This is a victory for the man. I remember the scepticism in 2005. I remember certain websites going ape against the man. And look how Craig has stolen audiences' hearts.

    Congrats to all involved.

    I agree wholeheartedly @DarthDimi. This is very redemptive for Craig, as well as all those who believed in him in the first place.

    Last night, the 1 million wall of sold tickets in Sweden was achieved for Skyfall! That is 100 million swedish Crowns which is 15 million Dollars. I've heard somewhere that no movie since Titantic has taken in this kind of money in Sweden. So this is truly astonishing!

    In my local cinema, more people watches Skyfall then The Hobbit. So only that is a achievment!

    SF has earned about 1 dollar per inhabitant of my country, Belgium. :) There's approx. 10 million of us. ;-)

    Yup. I think the sceptional Bond fans are slightly loosing here. 'Skyfall' is the biggest Bond film ever since 'Thunderball'. Fact. And the recent 'For your consideration' posters, directly aiming at screening audiences of the big movie awards, tells you something as well. I can't remember these kind of posters.....ever being distributed this heavily for a Bond movie. Unique.

    Yeah, I think it's safe to say that we may just need China to hit the billion dollar mark at this point.

    I think that the money it makes during the weekend will be far more than what it makes on weekdays.

    It really seems to have ground to a halt now. I thought a few weeks ago we would hit the 1 billion mark before China but now thats looking unlikely.

    However its still number 3 in London so must be doing reasonable business. Might get a boost from christmas as its almost a tradition in Britain to have a bit of Bond over the yuletide period.

    Apparently Skyfall is upto $974 mil W.W as of sunday!

    Next weekend should boost us to $990 million at least, we should get to $1 billion before the New Year - just! The question is can it make $82 million in China and elsewhere so we can outgross The Dark Knight Rises?

    We'll also out gross Twilight in the US. It hasn't halted yet, Skyfall is still going strong, no need to panic!

    Wow, a lot more than I had anticipated. Nearly $25 to go. If it doesn't hit it by the end of the year, it will surely hit it before China's release.

    Christmas period is here so very profitable time for films so Skyfall is bound to do well

    Billion dollar Bond.

    I like the way that sounds.

    I am gobsmacked by SF's box office performance. In a very pleasant way of course! We know the name we know the numbers!

    Another 63 something million dollars and SF will have beaten even TB.
    My eyes are going :-O . This is a-ma-zing!

    We can never really say it beat Thunderball because Thunderball had far less international markets then Skyfall.

    But it had more time in theaters because there will double bill showings and various screenings long after its release as well.

    But TB had the luxury of no internet download threats, DVD releases, etc. which makes SF even more of a triumph.

    Agreed!
    Also, films are pulled out of theatres much faster than back in the day. Let us make no mistake, this is impressive beyond belief.

    Also, this is not a 3D film, like nearly everything else today.
