Bond is back with a boom as Skyfall shatters UK box office records

October 29th, 2012 by Stuart Miller Comments

Skyfall, the latest James Bond movie, has not only enjoyed critical acclaim but it’s also gone and broken a couple of records to boot.

The film opened to the mighty tune of $32.4m (£20.1m) at the UK box office this weekend, making it the second highest opening of any film in the UK, just behind Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.

It wasn’t just down to takings where it broke records as the film also saw the highest attendence of any film on a Saturday in the UK, thus making this the most successful bond film of all time.

In other Bond news, Skyfall screenwriter Jon Logan will be back to pen the next two films in the series and that it will be a two-parter that will not be based on any of Fleming stories.

Ever since the age of two he's been a huge movie fan, especially horror films since one of the first films he ever watched was Poltergeist, yes at age two. Since then he can't stop watching films and over the years it has become a bit of an obsession, but it's not just films that he has a passion for; he's also a huge videogame fanatic and has also been known for belting out the odd tune or two.
