EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment announced today that Skyfall earned £37.2 million ($59.9M) in its opening week in the UK, overtaking Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (£35.7 million/$57.6 million) to secure the biggest 7-day gross of all time in UK box office history. The film also passed the $100 million mark globally on Thursday.

In response to the 7-day figures, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said: "We are very grateful to the Bond fans and all UK cinema audiences for making 'Skyfall' the biggest opening week ever during our 50th anniversary year."

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.
