Another major feat occurred t[his weekend as Skyfall has now passed $500 million worldwide. That is a massive total and the $200 million film is sure to recoup its budget and possibly hit somewhere around $800 million. That is a massive total and the highest for a Bond film. The film will likely pass Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale by next weekend.
In second place, Disney's Wreck-It Ralph grossed $33 million. That is a good hold, not great but good. It was a little lower than my projection but it should hold well in the following weeks until Rise of the Guardians. It has now grossed $93 million domestically. Paramount's Flight finished 3rd with a $15 million weekend. That is a good hold for an R-rated drama but nothing compared to Argo's hold in October. The A- Cinemascore didn't help Flight as much. In fourth was Affleck's drama, which took a harder hit than in previous weeks grossing only $6.7 million. The R-rated drama has now grossed $85.7 million. In fifth place, Taken 2 took in another $4 million.
In limited release, Steven Spielberg's Oscar-buzzed drama Lincoln grossed $900,000 in 11 theaters. That adds up to a marvelous $81, 818 per theater. Lincoln goes wide next week so we'll see how it goes.
Next weekend is bound to be a big one. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 2 opens and so does Lincoln for non-Twilight fans. This weekend's total gross was around $160 million.
