'Skyfall' opened in the UK exactly one year ago today

26-Oct-2013 • Skyfall

They say time passes faster when you age, and the last year seems to have flown past since the James Bond franchise celebrated its 50th anniversary and the release of the 23rd film, Skyfall', in cinemas all over the UK.

Just a few days prior, London's Royal Albert Hall played host to the royal world premiere of the film.

'Skyfall' quickly became the most successful James Bond film at the box-office, but its strong opening internationally and at the all important US release two weeks later, gave the movie long legs and became the highest grossing 007 outing of all time taking inflation in to account. It also became the UK's highest grossing film of all time, beating out 'Avatar'.

What do you think of the film now, a year on, from its initial release?
