'Skyfall' earns Rs 27.5 cr in weekend Box Office
This is the second biggest opening weekend ever for a Hollywood film in India and the highest for a non-3D film.

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 Pictures India.

Directed by Sam Mendes, the film 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).
