<i>Skyfall</i> Propels Sony Pictures to Highest Grossing Year Ever

Yesterday, Sony Pictures announced that 2012 has been the highest grossing year in its history. Propelled by Skyfall, now the most successful Bond film of all-time, the studio recently passed the $4 billion mark in worldwide sales. To date, Skyfall has grossed just under $670 million globally and is projected to eventually crack the $800 million mark.

Sony Pictures’ previous high was 2009’s $3.6 billion total. Along with Skyfall, The Amazing Spider-Man, Men in Black III and the animated Hotel Transylvania all helped the studio reach the milestone. Their total gross for 2012 is sure to climb even higher when on Dec. 19, Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty will premiere in New York and L.A.
