‘Casino Royale’ Sets Worldwide James Bond Record

According to Variety, Casino Royale has shot past the worldwide record for a James Bond movie, thanks mostly to strong international performance over the Christmas holiday weekend.

Sony's Casino Royale cashed in overseas with $14.5 million at 6,300 during the weekend through Sunday, lifting the foreign total to $304.4 million -- the 41st biggest international gross of all time. It's only the fourth 2006 pic to clear $300 million, joining "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," The Da Vinci Code and Ice Age: The Meltdown.

With domestic gross near $144 million, Casino Royale has a worldwide total of $448 million -- $17 million better than Die Another Day, the previous best Bond performer. It opened solidly in South Korea with $2.3 million at 350.

Casino Royale was released November 17th, 2006.
