Mumbai: The hugely anticipated 23rd Bond film Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig and Oscar-winner Javier Bardem, has posted a gross of Rs 27.5 crore approximately in its four-day opening weekend in India. This makes it the second biggest opening weekend ever for a Hollywood film in India and the highest for a non-3D film. The film has grossed Rs 34.5 crore as of today.
Sony Pictures India released the film on November 1 with 907
prints (the largest 2D Hollywood release ever) in four languages -
English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu - and in 2D and IMAX formats. The
film's weekend had the best opening for a Bond film in India so
far, exceeding other big box office performers Quantum of
Solace (2008) and Casino Royale (2006).
Both the films posted lifetime Gross box office (GBO) of Rs 44.4
crore and Rs 40.3 crore respectively. Skyfall also posted
the biggest ever Thursday opening for any Hollywood title with Rs
6.5 crore. Skyfall has not only continued India's
fascination with the James Bond franchise, but also expanded it.
"Extremely positive reviews and word-of-mouth will ensure that the
film has a long and successful run at the Box Office and will
garner repeat viewings as well," said Kercy Daruwala, MD, Sony
Directed by Sam Mendes, Skyfall stars Daniel Craig as
Bond, Judi Dench as M, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris
and Berenice Lim Marlohe. Earlier this year, Sony Pictures India
had the number 1 Hollywood opening weekend of all time with The
Amazing Spider-Man (3D) and another top 15 opening weekend in
Men In Black 3 (3D).
