'Skyfall' overtakes 'Twilight' in USA, stays in top ten
"Skyfall" has proven that James Bond has better legs at the US boxoffice than the "Twilight" franchise as the latest 007 adventure has overtaken the box-office haul of "Breaking Dawn Part 2" after 49 days on release.
007 is pulling in more than double the vampire's take every day at the box office this week, and has been rewarded by theatre owners by keeping more screens 2,365 versus 2,000.
Last weekend (Dec 21-23), "Skyfall" added another $4.7m, taking the domestic tally to $279.97m. The film slipped -28.3% from #4 last week to #8 due to the number of new releases.
As of today, the domestic total stands at an estimated $285,025,000 and is the 4th highest grossing film of the past year in the USA and Canada.
