Bond Beats Box Office Competition


Quantum of Solace, starring Daniel Craig in his reprisal as James Bond, hit its mark this past weekend, raking in an impressive $70.4 million—making it the biggest debut ever for a Bond movie. Dropping into second place was Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, voiced by Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and Jada Pinkett Smith, with $36.1 million. Trailing far behind was the Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott comedy Role Models at number three with $11.7 million, followed by teen sensation High School Musical 3: Senior Year at number four with $5.9 million. Rounding out the top five was Clint Eastwood’s Changeling with $4.2 million.

Next weekend is a highly anticipated one for many movie fans, marking the debut of much-hyped vampire flick Twilight, starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Animated children’s movie Bolt, featuring the voices of Miley Cyrus and John Travolta, hits theaters as well. Will one of these be able to defeat 007? Return to next week’s Top of the Box Office report to find out.
