<i>Skyfall</i> Becomes Sony's Highest-Grossing Film Ever

At this point it’d be easier to list the records Skyfall hasn’t broken. Last month alone it set a seven-day U.K. box office record, had the biggest opening weekend in Bond history and propelled Sony to its highest-grossing year ever. Now it can lay claim to being the highest-grossing film in Sony history as well, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The film (now in its fifth week) returned to the No. 1 spot this weekend thanks to an $11 million haul, making its total domestic gross a whopping $261.1 million. Adjusted for inflation, it now only trails three Bond films, 1965’s Thunderball ($593.9 million), 1964’s Goldfinger ($526.4 million) and 1967’s You Only Live Twice ($285.1 million).

Overseas, Skyfall has raked in $656.6 million, bringing its worldwide total to $918 million and surpassing Spider-Man 3 ($890 million) as the highest-grossing release in Sony Pictures history. It will open in China early next year which could propel it to becoming the first ever Bond film to gross $1 billion.
