Grossing £48.4 million ($77.7 million) two weeks before its US debut, the James Bond film has broken the UK Saturday attendance record, reports Collider.
It took a total of £20.2 million ($32.4 million) in the UK since its opening on Friday, October 26, making it the second-biggest opening in the country's box office history behind the 3D Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2.
The achievement has been deemed especially impressive considering the film does not enjoy the higher prices of 3D movies.
Skyfall screenwriter John Logan has signed up to provide the scripts for the next two James Bond instalments based on the strength of the movie's opening.
The Sam Mendes-directed film, which stars Daniel Craig, Dame Judi Dench, Javier Bardem and Bérénice Marlohe, will debut in the US on Friday November 9.
