007’s still got it. After four years off the big screen, the Bond series made a triumphant return this weekend with its newest action thriller, Skyfall, which grossed a record-breaking $87.8 million in its first three days. The number shatters the previous opening-weekend record, set in 2008, when Quantum of Solace brought in a whopping $67.5 million. Already the biggest debut in the Bond series’s 23-film history, Skyfall may not be done breaking records. As the lucrative Thanksgiving weekend approaches, some predict it will be the first Bond flick to pass the $200 million mark. Some things are worth waiting for.
