Bond Set for Biggest Opening Ever

Middling reviews and a bummer of an economy aren't enough to stop James Bond. The latest entry into the decades-old franchise, Quantum of Solace, is on pace to have biggest Bond opening ever. After making $27 million on Friday, MGM and Sony execs are hoping to see a weekend gross of $70 million. According to one insider, studio suits stayed up all night watching returns "and it just keeps getting better." What has Americans so willing to drop $11 on a movie ticket as the economy is collapses all around them? Probably a burning desire to stop watching the economy collapse all around them.
