The big story at the box office this week was, of course, the final installment of the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn: Part 2, which, more or less, as expected pulled in $141 million domestically, and $340 million worldwide. (Those curious about the film's content, and unconcerned about spoilers, can check out a particularly amusing review over at io9.)
And of course, Skyfall had a solid second weekend, taking in $41 million in the States, which has brought it almost even with Casino Royale there, and globally, its $669 million haul almost surpassing Royale's inflation-adjusted take. The Box Office Guru, initially conservative about the film's opening weekend prospects (the guess there was $76 million) remains bullish, writing that the movie "still has plenty of fuel in the tank with Australia, Japan, and China yet to open . . . and should surpass the Batflick over the coming weeks on its way to breaking the billion-dollar mark worldwide." In the nearer term, the sure to be lucrative Thanksgiving weekend in the U.S. seems likely to bring it into the vicinity of the $200 million mark in that market.
