“Skyfall” Leads Weekend Box Office, “Lincoln” Nears Million Mark

By  | 

The dominant winner at the Friday box office, “Skyfall”‘s weekend victory was never in question, and it lived up to the hype with an impressive $87.8 million in receipts this weekend.

That easily makes for the largest all-time opening weekend for a Bond film.

With “Skyfall” so dominantly in front, even the impressive second week from “Wreck-It Ralph” ($33.1 million) is left looking miniscule. “Flight” ($15.1 million), “Argo” ($6.7 million) and “Taken 2″ ($4 million) completed the top five.

On the platform front, all eyes were on “Lincoln,” which opened to $900,000 from 11 screens.
