Skyfall breaks Harry Potter record

A hush fell over the Potterhead nation as our movie-going record for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 was broken by the new James Bond movie… Well, maybe I’m being a little over-dramatic. It’s not that bad.

“Skyfall,” the latest installment in the long and legendary James Bond film series, opened to huge returns in the United Kingdom this week. The ticket sales were enough to dethrone “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” and give “Skyfall” the biggest opening week of all time in the U.K.

But “Skyfall” did fall short of overtaking “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” in just one weekend. The new Bond film brought in 20.1 million pounds in its opening weekend, a few million less than the 23 million pounds “Deathly Hallows: Part 2” took in during its first weekend run.

We still have our honor! Anyways, Skyfall still hasn’t come out in the United States. It’s release date is November 9.
