James Bond– thwarted in the US to premiere this week but he’s kicking butt around the world. “Skyfall” is now circling $100 million from the box office in nine countries including Russia, France and Brazil and of course the United Kingdom. The 23rd James Bond film doesn’t open in the US until November 9th. But following the pattern of many big budget films this year like “The Avengers” and “Battleship,” “Skyfall” is hedging its bets by avoiding too much exposure here and getting its money in quickly. No need to bypass the US though — the press loves “Skyfall” and reviews are the best for any James Bond in the last generation.
