The new James Bond film "Skyfall" has demolished its competition from the teen vampire franchise "Twilight" in its second week on release at the Australian box-office.

007's 23rd adventure pulled in an impressive $7.727m across the nation in its second weekend, down 41% from its debut of $12.304.

"Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" collected only $2.258 million in second place.

With $25.9m in the bank in just 10 days, "Skyfall" has already surpassed the Bond record Down Under of $25,391m held by 2006's "Casino Royale".
