It’s one of the most talked about films in the world but is it going to be the most viewed!
The new Skyfall film came out in the UK, France and other parts of Europe last Friday and it has already broke box office records.
The film has made $9.99 million in the fist day and now is expected to make around $32.2 million by the end of today!

Within a day Taylor Swift sold 500,000 copies of the album. Her previous effort, Speak Now, debuted its first week with 1.047 units, this would make her the First female artist to have a pair of albums make that kind of money in that timeframe…as it’s only been achieved prior by Backstreet Boys,*NSync, and Eminem!
Its only been 3 weeks since Madonna‘s MDNA tour has grossed a $50 million! Aaaand she still has 70 shows left!
And the rating are great and very high.
A concert promoter explains:
“She is playing some of the biggest venues around the world and selling them out … It’s putting other summer tours, includingJ.Lo‘s first tour, to shame. What is so impressive about these numbers is she’s playing far fewer shows than previous tours by the Rolling Stones, Cher and Lady Gaga, and grossing more.”
As of now, the top grossing tour of all is U2‘s 360° tour, which racked up $736,421,586. The Stones’ Bigger Bang tour is #2 with $558,255,524 bucks earned, and a gross of $441,121,000 puts AC/DCat the #3 spot.
Madonna last tour, the Sticky & Sweet Tour, raked in $407,713,266 — putting her at #4!
