“Skyfall” Tops Box Office with $11 Million
(NEW YORK) — The James Bond film Skyfall climbed back into the top spot at the box office over the weekend.
Skyfall, which debuted at number one last month, led all movies with an estimated gross of $11 million. It has now raised $918 million worldwide — a record total for both a Bond film and for a Sony film.
There’s a possibility Skyfall could lose the box office crown on Monday, when the final totals are released. Estimates had Rise of the Guardians finishing second, with $10.5 million — a small enough margin to indicate that the final rankings might change.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, which was the box office champ the previous three weekends, fell to third place, collecting $9.2 million.
Gerard Butler’s romantic comedy Playing for Keeps was a flop, debuting in sixth place with $6 million.
Here are the top 10 movies from Friday through Sunday, with estimated ticket sales:
1. Skyfall, $11 million
2. Rise of the Guardians, $10.5 million
3. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, $9.2 million
4. Lincoln, $9.1 million
5. Life of Pi, $8.3 million
6. Playing for Keeps, $6 million
7. Wreck-It Ralph, $4.9 million
8. Red Dawn, $4.3 million
9. Flight, $3.1 million
10. Killing Them Softly, $2.7 million
