Bond's Skyfall grosses Rs 275 mn in 4-day opening weekend

MUMBAI: Eon Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment?s 23rd Bond film Skyfall has grossed approximately Rs 275 million in its four-day opening weekend in India.

This makes the second biggest opening weekend ever for a Hollywood film in India and the highest for a non-3D film, Sony Pictures India said.

The film was released on 1 November with 907 prints in four languages -- English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu -- and in 2D and IMAX formats.

Said Sony Pictures India managing director Kercy Daruwala, "Skyfall has not only continued India?s fascination with the James Bond franchise, but has also expanded it. The anticipation for the film has been unprecedented, going into high gear with the celebrations of the 50th year of the film franchise earlier in October. Extremely positive reviews and word-of-mouth will ensure that the film will have a long and successful run at the box-office and garner repeat viewings as well."

Skyfall?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). Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale posted lifetime gross box office of Rs 444 million and Rs 403 million respectively. It also posted the biggest ever Thursday opening for any Hollywood title with Rs 65 million.

In Skyfall, Bond?s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under an attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
