Skyfall, which recently opened in China, now stands behind The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King ($1.119 billion), Transformers: Dark of the Moon ($1.123 billion), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 ($1.3 billion), Marvel's The Avengers ($1.5 billion), Titanic ($2.1 billion), and Avatar ($2.7 billion).
While it seems unlikely that Skyfall will catch Titanic and Avatar, don't be surprised if this James Bond thriller moves up a few more spots before ending its run. Skyfall is currently available on Digital HD formats before its Blu-ray and DVD release February 12.
Skyfall was released November 9th, 2012 and stars Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Marlohe, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw. The film is directed by Sam Mendes.
