411's Box Office Report: Skyfall Puts James Bond at #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 11.11.2012





There's a new king in town in terms of Bond film opening weekends. Skyfall dominated the box office this weekend, easily taking the #1 spot with $87.8 million. It is the fourth-best opening weekend of the year behind only The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises and The Hunger Games and beat Quantum of Solace's $67.5 million for the largest Bond film opening of all-time. The movie averaged $25,050 from 3,505 theaters, adding to the limited Thursday opening for a total of $90 million domestically and $518.6 million worldwide on a budget of $200 million. At this rate it will very destroy the $594.2 million and $586.1 million worldwide that Casino Royale and Quantum made throughout their runs, respectively.

Making way for Skyfall, Wreck-It Ralph dropped to #2 in its second weekend. The CGI animated video game-themed movie brought in $33.1 million, dropping a very solid 33%. The film has now grossed $93.7 million domestically and $105.7 million worldwide. Its budget was $165 million.

Flight also slipped a spot, down to #3 in its second weekend with $15.1 million. That is a 40% second-weekend drop, also impressive considering its genre. The Denzel Washington-led drama has a total of $47.7 million with a budget of $31 million.

Argo was down a rung in its fifth weekend, ending up at #4 with $6.7 million. The film has now grossed $85.7 million domestically and $99.1 million worldwide on a $44.5 million budget; it looks to be on pace to top The Town as Ben Affleck's highest-grossing directorial effort to date.

Taken 2 continued its impressive run in theaters, holding even at #5 with $4 million. The film has now grossed $131.3 million domestically and $342.2 million worldwide on a budget of $45 million.

Kevin James' MMA comedy Here Comes the Boom leaped up the charts, up three places to #6 in its fourth weekend with $2.6 million. The film has now grossed a total of $39.1 million domestically and $39.5 million worldwide with a budget of $42 million.

Cloud Atlas fell just one spot in its third weekend to #7, bringing in $2.5 million. The ensemble sci-fi epic has now grossed $22.7 million domestically and $24 million worldwide with a budget of $102 million.

Pitch Perfect jumped back into the top ten after being out for two weeks, up three places to #8 with $2.5 million. The Anna Kendrick-led musical comedy has been a hit for Universal, with a domestic total of $59 million and a worldwide gross of $62.1 million on a budget of $17 million.

The Man with the Iron Fist took a hit in its second weekend, dropping five spots to #9 with $2.5 million. The RZA-directed film fell a painful 69%, well above the average for even a frontloaded martial arts film. The film may still be profitable during its theatrical run with a little luck and foreign grosses though, with a two-week total of $12.7 million on a budget of $15 million.

Sony Animation's Hotel Transylvania was down three places to #10 with $2.4 million. The animated film has now grossed $140.9 million domestically and $255.9 million worldwide on a budget of $85 million.

The weekend box office tally was $171 million, up a hefty 25% from last year's $136.6 million gross that was led by Immortals' $32.2 million opening and Jack & Jill's $25 million bow.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
