Skyfall is still currently in cinemas and has taken over $1 billion US dollars worldwide! This makes the film the most popular and most successful Bond film ever, even adjusted for inflation.
-It is currently the 14th highest grossing film EVER!
-It is the highest grossing film in the UK making over £100,000,000! Overtaking the old record James Cameron's Avatar.
-It is Sony pictures highest grossing film.
-Skyfall has won several awards and has been nominated for many others. (including Golden Globe award)
The film will probably make more than 30 million from selling DVD's as well. It is so good to see a 50 year old franchise have so much support. I am glad James Bond is getting awards and recognition to the cast and crew who make truly magnificent pieces of cinema history. I would never of thought any Bond film would surpass 1 billion mark!
Only 14 films in film history have grossed more than a billion, and Skyfall is now one of them. Here are some articles on this remarkable achievement:

The following cast who received awards:-

Sam Mendes won for best directing. I wonder if Sam will return to direct the next Bond film, Bond 24? I think he most definitely should return due to his great success and talent directing, organising and absolutely outstanding approach to the film. It has the right balance of action scenes and storyline/location.
The film is a good comeback from Quantum of Solace that's for sure!
