19-Nov-2006 • Casino Royale

More good news for the number crunchers following Casino Royale worldwide, as following the record-breaking UK opening for a Bond film, the international box-office totals are also looking healthy.

Overseas, 007 was #1 in all 27 countries where it opened, earning $42.2 mil from the UK, Russia, India and small territories in the Mideast and Asia - reports DeadlineHollywood.

That's 70% higher than the previous Die Another Day in 2002 and by far the biggest Bond ever.

Worldwide, Casino Royale took in $82.8 mil. It was the #9 all-time UK opening, and the biggest Bond opening ever in the UK by 46%.

Thanks to `Moore` for the alert.
