LALD seems far away. It will need 600-650 m$ OS.
It’s my belief it will get there. Across all territories that Skyfall has opened, it’s up an average of 56% on QoS. It has vastly better figures in its first to second week drop-offs (eg. SF did better in its second weekend than QoS did in its first in the UK and there are similarly impressive second weeks across the board)
This film could well get to over $650m overseas. It's so far proving to be a mind boggling success.
I hope it will. It seems 600m$ OS is in the bank. However as time passes every single $ will be hard to earn. Also the US boxoffice is important. I accept that it has chance to pass LALD, but it will be difficult. We will see.
The best part of a 007 movie for me has started great: The Boxoffice
I’m not saying it will be plain sailing. As I said above, I believe I’m sticking my neck out by suggesting it. It may well be very close, but I now believe that it is quite possible.
It's amazing isn't it? Back in the 90s, the Bond films were considered gigantic success again. But the heights of films such as DAF, MR and TSWLM seemed part of the past and unachievable in the future for Bond. That was all proven wrong with CR. Now we are looking even higher, at the likes of YOLT and LALD with a very real chance of getting to that level.
When it comes to successes and Skyfall, I think it’s got a few surprises in store for us yet.
