MGM chairman and CEO Gary Barber said: "The continued record-breaking success of this film is a true testament to all involved and the global power of this 50 year old franchise."

Jeff Blake, chairman of Sony Pictures Worldwide marketing and distribution, added: "We couldn’t be more proud of the critical and commercial reaction 'Skyfall' has received."

Skyfall opens in North American IMAX theaters on Thursday, Nov. 8 and in conventional theaters on Nov. 9.
