On the cusp of its U.S. opening, Skyfall just keeps blasting ahead at the box office. The 23rd James Bond film today passed The Dark Knight Rises to become the UK’s highest-grossing film of the year. With a local take of £57M ($91.07M), the Eon Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment movie is now also the biggest Bond picture of all time in Britain, outplaying Casino Royale‘s £55.6M ($88.8M) haul in 2006. The Sam Mendes-directed Skyfall opened in 587 cinemas in the UK and Ireland on Friday October 26, beginning its overseas rollout at the same time. As of Sunday, it had taken $287M internationally and was breaking records in most territories. It starts IMAX showings in North America today and opens wide tomorrow.
