Skyfall lands biggest one-week gross of all time in U.K.

From WENN.com

The 23rd 007 installment hit British screens last Friday (26Oct12), and it has since garnered $59.5 million (£37.2 million), beating the first week takings of last year's (11) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are overjoyed with the new record, which comes as the franchise marks 50 years since the first Bond movie, Dr. No.

They state, ""We are very grateful to the Bond fans and all U.K. cinema audiences for making Skyfall the biggest opening week ever during our 50th anniversary year.""

Gary Barber, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MGM, adds, ""The continued record-breaking success of this film is a true testament to all involved and the global power of this 50 year old franchise.""

The film, which stars Daniel Craig as the superspy, opens in the U.S. on 9 November (12).
