James Bond “Skyfall” Now at $101 Mil After Four Days


Yesterday’s school-off holiday did it for “Skyfall.” The 23rd James Bond film crossed the magic line and ended the day with $101.8 million in the till. “Skyfall” is not at $529,674,538– holy cow– and the US part is only since Thursday night. Somewhere in heaven, Cubby Broccoli is smiling that his daughter and step son have done such a great job keeping his dream alive. And I said before, none of the participants will be leaving this latest episode willingly. Suddenly, James Bond is hip again. And Adele’s “Skyfall” single is holding tight at number 3 on both iTunes and amazon this afternoon. “Skyfall” is a windfall!
