‘Skyfall’ is biggest Bond overseas

International take of $433.1 mil passes 'Casino Royale'

Skyfall” continued to thrill the international box office, amassing $433.1 million overseas through Nov. 12, making the 23rd Bond film the 50-year-old franchise’s highest-grossing installment outside the U.S.

Globally, Sony-MGM’s “Skyfall” already has crossed the half billion-dollar mark.

The pic, which earned a whopping $89 million over the weekend of Nov. 9-11, was in its third week overseas as it made its Nov. 9 Stateside bow. Internationally, the pic has surpassed the entire lifetime cume of the previous top Bond film overseas, “Casino Royale,” which reached $432.2 million in 2006.

Not surprisingly, the U.K. is “Skyfall’s” top overseas territory, cuming $117 million through the film’s third frame. That makes the pic Blighty’s second-highest-grossing film of all time behind “Avatar” ($149 million in the U.K.).

“Skyfall’s” global performance is similar to previous Daniel Craig-starring Bond editions: The film so far has earned 80% of its coin internationally. By comparison, “Casino Royale” saw 72% of its worldwide gross come from overseas wickets, while 2008’s “Quantum of Solace” skewed 71% international.

The overseas percentage for “Skyfall” should decrease slightly as the film plays out domestically; the pic totaled north of $100 million Stateside in just five days.

“Skyfall” looks to be able to continue to dominate male attention as the final “Twilight” installment, “Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” which bowed day-and-date Nov. 16, appeals primarily to female fans.

“Twilight” launched via local distribs in 54 international territories, including Australia, France, Italy, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, Spain and the U.K.
