While the James Bond film series has a global phenomenon from the start, its performance in Britain has historically been on a whole other level, and Skyfall has been no exception to that pattern. This past week it surpassed Avatar's $150.1 million to become the highest-grossing film of all time in Britain. As of this weekend it now has $154.5 million in the till.
Even without adjustment for inflation, that still leaves it with quite the place not merely in the history of the Bond franchise, but the history of the British box office.
