‘Skyfall’ tops $100 mil at domestic B.O.

Bond pic benefits from Veterans Day traffic; global cume hits $535 mil

“Skyfall” has crossed the $100 million domestic mark after just five days at the plexes. The international haul stands at $433.1 million through Monday, making it the biggest Bond pic overseas, just ahead of 2006’s “Casino Royale,” at $432.2 million.

Globally, “Skyfall” has cumed a whopping $535 million.

The Sony-MGM release, which wound up scoring a revised $88.4 million in its three-day Stateside debut, earned a hearty $11.3 million on Monday — boosted by increased theater traffic because of the Veterans Day holiday.

Pic’s five-day totals included the exclusive Nov. 8 launch at premium large-format locations (including Imax), contributing $2.2 million. The film’s large-screen previews helped generate word of mouth among younger auds on opening weekend, though “Skyfall” still earned two-thirds of its debut from filmgoers over 25.

Midweek business should continue to be strong for “Skyfall” as adult-skewing films typically play well during the week.

“Skyfall” held exceptionally well overseas considering its stellar openings in most territories over the past weeks. The film dropped just 30% during its third and second frames in the U.K. and Germany, respectively. Pic’s totals in Blighty reached $117 million, while in Germany “Skyfall” has cumed $44 million.

Sony is distributing the film in most international territories; MGM has rights in a handful of other markets.
