Can 'Skyfall' Become the Highest-Grossing Bond Film of All-Time?

Based on early figures, the sky could be the limit for Sam Mendes’ Skyfall
 
Though it doesn’t open in the U.S. until Friday, Nov. 9, the 23rd James Bond adventure already has earned a massive $287 million in international markets, racing toward the $417M earned overseas by the last Bond thriller, Quantum of Solace
 
Based on early buzz (and overwhelmingly positive reviews), pundits already are starting to wonder if Skyfall coud be the highest-grossing 007 film of all time. That would fit in line with the pattern. According to box office statistic, Bond films basically have increased in gross from year to year … primarily reflecting an increase in ticket prices over the decades, as well as a growing fan base that adds new members with the release of each new film. 
 
Daniel Craig’s Bond, in particular, has proven lucrative for the long-running franchise. His debut Bond movie, Casino Royale, earned $167.4M in the U.S. in 2006. It narrowly was edged by Solace, which stands at $168M. 
 
Skyfall, by all preliminary accounts, could leave those two efforts in the dust, becoming the first Bond film to surpass the $200 million mark at the domestic box office. 
 
We’ll be paying close attention to Skyfall’s weekend number. If it’s able to top Solace’s opening weekend figure of $67.5M, then a domestic total north of $200M will be probable. And adding the slight increase of IMAX tickets will only help matters. 
 
Tell us: Do you think Skyfall has the ability to become the highest-grossing 007 film of all time? Do you plan on seeing it opening weekend? And will you pay the increased ticket price to see Mendes’ movie in IMAX?
