To no one's surprise, Skyfall swept the box office this weekend, nabbing the number one spot at the box office. What is a pleasant surprise - for the film's producers, anyway - was that the 23rd James Bond film's take of $87.8 million secured a new opening weekend record for the 50-year-old franchise.
Disney's latest film, Wreck-It Ralph, was bumped down from its number one title to number two with $33 million while Flight also dropped a spot to number three with $15.1 million. Argo remains within the top five with $6.7 million in its fifth week while Taken 2 stayed put at number five with $4 million.
