‘Skyfall’ to be released in China Jan. 21

Sony pic has cumed $953.8 million since opening a few months ago

“Skyfall” has been set for a Jan. 21 launch in China, nearly three months after the Bondpic rolled out in the U.K.

Sony confirmed the China debut Friday.

“Skyfall” has cumed $953.8 million worldwide with $275.1 million domestically and $678.7 million overseas, led by $158.4 million in the U.K., $77.1 million in Germany amd $56.8 million in France.

China is the final major market to open for “Skyfall.” Every other market launch in October and November, except for Japan, which opened Dec. 1.

The 22nd Bond movie, “Quantum of Solace,” grossed $21 million in China as part of its $417 million foreign gross.

As of Dec. 9, “Skyfall” became the highest-grossing pic ever for Sony and MGM — and is headed toward becoming the first-ever billion-dollar grosser for either studio. The 23rd James Bond film is a joint venture between Sony and MGM.

Sony launched the Bondpic internationally two weeks before the U.S., looking to capitalize on overseas holidays, as well as to distance the film from other tentpoles such as “Twilight” and “The Hobbit,” which bowed the weekend of Dec. 14 in 55 day-and-date territories.
