James Bond may have a licence to kill but the new Bond flick Skyfall has been licensed to thrill audiences.
And thrill it has as the twenty third movie in the spy franchise has smashed UK box office records in its first weekend.
With Daniel Craig returning as Bond, James Bond for the third time, the film made an eye-watering $32.4 million in Britain alone, according to Deadline.com.
But her Majesty’s favourite secret agent hasn’t just had success for Queen and country as the film has shot to number one in 25 markets overseas.
And with not one but two Bond girls in the form of Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe, it’s no surprise that Skyfall has had the biggest opening weekend in 2012 so far.
Smashing the all-time Saturday attendance record, audiences were flocking to watch the highly anticipated return of the spy flick.
And if that wasn’t enough, the movie is thought to have grossed $77.7 million in its opening weekend and it’s expected to outstrip the previous highest earner, Casino Royal.
We bet that figure has got movie bosses shaken AND stirred!
