It not only breaks $1 billion globally but breaks £1 million in the UK

Over the weekend, the film took a further $1.4 million (£867,000) in Britain, bringing its total earnings to $161.6 million, making it the first film to break the £100 million barrier in the UK.

This is incredible and yes, makes us proud.
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

Shawn Robbins, an editor at boxoffice.com, says the film created a perfect storm.

"The 50th anniversary of the series provided great marketing synergy that permeated the industry all year," he says. "Additionally, [Daniel] Craig's popularity as Bond (despite some audiences' disappointment over Quantum of Solace) never slowed down after the great response to Casino Royale in 2006."
"James Bond is the epitome of cool," says veteran publicist Howard Bragman, vice chairman of Reputation.com. "He operates well under pressure; can get out of any situation while barely breaking a sweat; he's a guy women loved and men want to be. That’s what explains his coolness. And he never gets a rash, pimple, cold, or has a bad day. That’s what comes from being a fictional, as opposed to a real, hero."
"Given the franchise's durability over five decades and Skyfall's massive box office returns, I think its safe to say the public's interest in Bond won't be going away anytime soon," says Robbins.

DOMESTIC

#1) Skyfall (tie)

Prior to 2012, no Bond film had ever reached $200 million domestically (not accounting for inflation, obviously). Not only did James Bond celebrate his 50th cinematic birthday this year with an extremely well-received film, a hit theme song from Adele and some of the best marketing synergy any franchise has ever captured, but he stormed past $200 million and gunned for $300 million. That's a figure which Skyfall will hit in the early weeks of 2013.

The film will end its run as the third-highest grossing 2D film of 2012 and fourth overall. That marks the best yearly rank for a Bond title in more than 33 years. By comparison, Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale each finished ninth in 2008 and 2006. In terms of tickets sold, Skyfall reached a level only previously seen in the franchise with 1964's Goldfinger and 1965's Thunderball. Impressive, Mr. Bond.
OVERSEAS
#1) Skyfall (tie)

What else can be said about Daniel Craig's third outing as 007? For starters, Skyfall, through December 31, achieved $706 million internationally and has yet to open in China--meaning a final overseas gross of at least $750 million is all but guaranteed at this point. For the international year, that will position the Bond flick as the highest grossing 2D release of 2012 and second highest among all films behind The Avengers.

All-time, Skyfall appears to be heading toward the second-best 2D gross in international history, behind only Titanic and--we project--topping The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King's $742.1 million. Skyfall's current $706 million overseas tally blew past the previous high for the franchise: Casino Royale's $426.8 million. If all of this wasn't enough, the film seized the aforementioned perfect storm of marketing synergy at the hub of all things Bond when it topped Avatar last month as the United Kingdom's highest grossing movie in history with $158+ million -- a drastic increase from Casino Royale's 2006-leading $105.9 million U.K. gross.

Once again: Impressive, Mr. Bond...and very commendable.


btw it seems that Skyfall only will have 28-days' run in China
from Jan 21 to feb 17
