Bond breaks UK box office record beating Harry Potter

It's a tough fight these days between James Bond and Harry Potter for most beloved pop culture character, but Bond has stuck another blow against the young wizard. Skyfall has just broken the UK record for best opening week in history by pulling in £37.2 million ($59.8 million U.S. dollars) in its opening week. That's pretty epic.

With rave reviews across the board and, most importantly, from our own Xander Markham. Skyfall looks like it's going to be a ridiculously popular Bond entry. Americans don't get to see it for another week, where I doubt it will be toppling any U.S. records simply because it doesn't involve superheroes or young adult novels, but it'll probably become the top grossing Bond film ever pretty easily if this UK opening is any indication.
