Vampires Beat Bond, James Bond

Dec 29th, 2008 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

Rotten Tomatoes is reporting that Twilight has surpassed the domestic box office totals of Quantum of Solice, for a grand total of $167.1 million to date! The film has made $237 million world wide!

“Also notable below the top ten was the vampire blockbuster Twilight surpassing the total gross of fellow November hit Quantum of Solace. Just a month ago, nobody would have guessed that the modestly-budgeted $37M teen saga would go on to outgun the latest James Bond film and its $200M+ budget. Twilight grossed an estimated $4.5M this weekend, down only 13%, for a $167.1M domestic total while Quantum fell 29% to an estimated $1.5M pushing its cume to $164.3M. Overseas, of course, is another story with the 007 actioner having a $300M advantage, but Stephanie Meyer fans have given the film industry something that is rare nowadays – a hit with legs. For the year, Twilight ranks as the eighth biggest blockbuster of 2008.”

    Yes, of course Twilight beat James Bond. Bond may be epic, but those movies are just getting more ridiculous as they go…
