Quantum Of Cash
Quantum of Solace proved to be a huge payday for James Bond producers - the flick pulled in $70.4 million in its opening weekend, topping the previous Bond record, $47 million for Die Another Day.
The pull was $30 million more than the film's predecessor, 2006's "Casino Royal," which brought in around $40 million in opening weekend revenue. 9.8 million tickets were sold for Quantum of Solace.
"Quite frankly, they loved it. They loved the movie, and they loved him in the role, so I think by the time `Quantum of Solace' was ready, audiences in the U.S. as well as the world audience was way ready."
Rounding out the top ten:3. Role Models, $11.7 million
4. High School Musical 3: Senior Year, $5.9 million
5. Changeling, $4.2 million
6. Zack and Miri Make a Porno, $3.2 million
7. Soul Men, $2.43 million
8. The Secret Life of Bees, $2.4 million
