Skyfall, for the third weekend in a row, was No. 2 in U.S.-Canada movie ticket sales, according to the BOX OFFICE MOJO WEB SITE.
The 23rd James Bond movie had an estimated $17 million in ticket sales, according to the Web site. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 was again No. 1, but not by much, at $17.4 million.
The results bring Skyfall’s U.S.-Canada total to $246 million and its worldwide ticket sales to $869 million, according to Box Office Mojo. The film had already set U.S. and worldwide ticket sales records.
About the only box-office suspense remaining is whether Skyfall can crack the $1 billion mark for ticket sales. That would put Skyfall near The Dark Knight Rises at $1.08 billion. Marvel’s The Avengers is the No. 1 worldwide this year at $1.51 billion.
