JAMES BOND hit Skyfall has become the first movie ever to take a nine-figure sum at the UK box office.
The film, already the most successful movie hit in the UK, has now passed the £100m mark in the year the 007 movies celebrated their 50th anniversary.
Daniel Craig’s third appearance as Bond is still on general release more than two months after it first hit cinemas.
Globally it has taken more than one billion dollars, which amounts to in excess of £620m.
Skyfall, which was directed by Sam Mendes, became the highest grossing film ever in the UK earlier this month when it overtook the £94m generated by Avatar. The Bond film achieved the figure in just 40 days, while James Cameron’s Avatar took 11 months to amass its total.
The 23rd 007 adventure sees suave Bond battling with villain Raoul Silva (played by Javier Bardem), who aims to take revenge on his former boss M (Dame Judi Dench).
