Skyfall

After 50 years on screen, James Bond can still pull them in. Skyfall grossed nearly $88 million this weeknd in its U.S. opening. It's far and away the biggest opening ever for a Bond film.

Add to that this weekend's box office overseas numbers, and Skyfall has grossed, to date, almost $519 million worldwide, and there's no let up in sight. The sky is not falling. There's no limit.

Meanwhile, Flight held strong, reaching a total, so far, of almost $48 million, and Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, which opened this weekend in a limited release on only 11 screens, made $900,000, for an $81,000 per screen average. The third best opening this year for any film under 15 screens. The film will expand to more screens in the following weeks.

RZA'a The Man with the Iron Fist dropped big, though Wreck-it-Ralph and Argo held on strong.

    I read the title as "Bond Rules THE END of the World". LOL *sigh* Is is December 12th? No? Not yet? Okay. Question: Will there be a "Taken 3"???

    And what happened to Alex Cross? Wait, don't answer that Lol.

    After all that hype Man With The Iron Fist didn't live up to the hype and the box office shows. RZA's not a good actor and should stick to directing, and the film was a hack job. The fact that he's lining up all these projects is interesting. I want to see what he does out of under Tarantino's and Roth's shadows.

    Poor Cloud Atlas. I wonder what happened to its audience? Some people listen to reviews, but a lot of people ignore reviews....bad word of mouth, maybe?

    The regular moviegoer doesn't anything about director's private life. I highly doubt that Larry switching to Lara Warchowski was on people's minds and even if it was so what? People are going to run for the hills away from the film afraid they're going to contaminated? Who knew Larry had an "almost" sex change (actually he didn't go "all the way') except those who regularly follow film news? The problem was that the film was badly marketed. Even that extended six minute trailer they released still couldn't clearly explain what the film was about. It wasn't until I saw it I realized that actually it's a pretty simple film to follow once you're past the the first 30 minutes

    Wow, I knew absolutely nothing about the "sex slave" thing. I agree with Sergio. If I didn't spend so much time online I wouldn't have even known that the film was out. I barely saw any tv ads and those I did see told you absolutely nothing about it. Like you all I really knew was that it's about reincarnation and the characters change sexes and races throughout the film. I nominated it for a Netflix viewing.

    I don't think it was the film as much as the Director that had the sex change. One of the twin brothas I think. I think his personal life keeps getting in the way of his/or her craft. I remember seeing in his/or her IMDB profile that he sold himself as a sex slave or some weird crap during the filming of the Matrix. So I think it's just a turn off for some people. I heard more about his sex change more than the film. Plus the film is close to three hours long, I heard and it's alot to take in because it about reincarnation. But the people who have seen said it was very good and rated as one of the top films they ever seen. So maybe it will do better on DVD.

    As I stated earlier the main problem I think was that Warners had NO idea how to market the film. Audiences like to know what a film is about before they decide to see it or not. But since the marketing gave people no idea what the film was about they stayed away. And since the film was totally financed independently from foreign sources, Warner's own financial end was modest so they didn't care. The film is just now beginning to be released overseas and it'll probably do much better there, especially in Europe and Asia.

    Bond was freaking awesome! Naomie Harris was gorgeous, though under-used in the film. But I thought it was $7.50 well spent.
