After breaking all the records in the UK and Europe, Skyfall opened across the US and Canada yesterday and received a impressive $33 million at the box office.

Predictions that the film will have made $80+ million by the end of the weekend are not pie-in-the-sky.

It is understood that the film cost around $200m to make – although an official figure was never released – and so taking into account its UK and European successes, Sony Pictures are already in the black, with several weeks of box office earning (not to mention DVD sales!) to go.
