'Skyfall' to be widest ever UK release by Sony Pictures
The new James Bond film "Skyfall" will be the widest release ever by Sony Pictures in the UK.
They have confirmed that Daniel Craig's third outing as 007 will be showing in 587 cinemas in the UK, on more than 1,500 screens.
That is quite a leap from the previous film, "Quantum of Solace" (2008), which opened across 1,150 screens in the UK & Ireland. Record-breaking "Casino Royale" (2006) was narrower still with just 988 screens on opening week.
Additional IMAX screens and higher ticket prices for the premium screenings will also give "Skyfall" a great shot at breaking box-office records in the UK.
