‘Skyfall’ Becomes the Seventh Highest Grossing Movie Worldwide

Skyfall becomes the seventh highest grossing movie of all time worldwide The 007 action-thriller Skyfall has become the seventh highest grossing movie of all time at the box office worldwide. The blockbuster has a current global gross of $1.094 billion, surpassing The Dark Knight Rises' tally of $1.081 billion. It took Skyfall just 87 days to amass that amount, with The Dark Knight Rises taking 121 days to earn its worldwide gross.

Skyfall, which recently opened in China, now stands behind The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King ($1.119 billion), Transformers: Dark of the Moon ($1.123 billion), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 ($1.3 billion), Marvel's The Avengers ($1.5 billion), Titanic ($2.1 billion), and Avatar ($2.7 billion).

While it seems unlikely that Skyfall will catch Titanic and Avatar, don't be surprised if this James Bond thriller moves up a few more spots before ending its run. Skyfall is currently available on Digital HD formats before its Blu-ray and DVD release February 12.

Skyfall was released November 9th, 2012.

        @dan1 -- Duly noted. I'm on a Darren Aronofsky roll, and after that, I'll probably go the David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick, or anything weird route(DVD/Blu-ray wise; I'm watching practically anything and everything theatrically). After all's been said and done, I'll try to make the Bond films my primary goal. The notable ones, at least.

          @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Really? Check out some of the ones we've mentioned. Particularly Goldfinger and GoldenEye. Sometimes I forget you're a young guy.

            @dan1 -- Only Bond films I've seen are the three latest editions.

              Always a great achievement for a film. And at the very least, this one actually deserved it... Transformers.

                    Sweet list, @bawnian-dexeus. Try out the likes of Dr. No, Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, Thunderball, etc.

                          @dan1 If you think about it, we have a male M, MoneyPenny, and Q. We've reached Bond's "Golden Years" with that cast set up. That's why I love Skyfall so much, it has Classic Bond characters in a Modern Day setting, a perfect combination with the right amount of cheese and spectacular action.

                            I practically have the same list as @ejk1 except I would replace The Spy who Loved My with On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

                              A bad Bind Movie, but an okay Batman film

                                @ejk1 Ahh.. Q's final moments. A touching and humorous scene indeed. I guess I wouldn't call it a bad Bond movie, just an incredibly cheesy movie in general, with poor production quality. The script itself is actually pretty good, as seen throughout the film via the dialouge (not necessarily the delivery), and I feel it would have made a far better picture had it been in the hands of someone else.

                                  @narrator Gonna have to agree to disagree on TWINE. Richards doesn't show up until around the midpoint, and by that time the film is already a winner in my book. And while I could bring up some things that I liked or loved, I simply need to bring this to make my claim (you can skip to the last thirty seconds if you want):

                                      @narrator Definitely. It made me very happy to see the words "James Bond will return" at the end of Skyfall. I expect many more adventures with the new cast in place.

                                        Great choices, @ejk1. Though I'm not sure about TWiNE... Richards was in that film an awful lot, and she wasn't the only problem with it. Lol. I felt like it was the directors downgrade from Empire Strikes Back, I believe.

                                        But in the end, @dan1, @ejk1, it's our love of so many different Bond films that highlights just how varied and special this franchise is. There is and likely never will be a franchise like Bond, where no two people have the exact same top five list.

                                          @ejk1 I didn't specify between 1.0 and 2.0, just Bond films in general. I'm aware of the distinction you make Casino Royale on.
