So, on Saturday night I grabbed all the adjusted grosses of the Bond movies over the franchise’s 50 year history and plotted them onto the graph below to get a fairly accurate graph of James Bond’s popularity over the years. Adjusted figured would generally mean that what you are seeing on this graph is the number of tickets that were sold.
I have given Skyfall an estimated final tally of $290 Mil, currently it is sitting at $245 Mil.
There are several interesting things that can be seen in this graph such as the fact that Pierce Brosnan was the only Bond whose debut film grossed more than the previous entry. It also shows us that Bond’s current popularity is the highest it has been since the 60’s high point during the Connery years (Goldfinger and Thunderball being way out in front).
Dave Ath, the Ranter and myself discuss what worked (not much) and what didn’t work in The Bourne Legacy… Simply follow the link below and click on ‘The Bourne Legacy’. Our site is exceptionally good for use with all smartphones (even dumber ones like Blackberrys) http://www.moviecom.co.za
In an effort to promote our latest series of short films, the Love Bombs team invaded the Waterfront as a fake Boyband, camera crew, Swedish Director and Agents and Producers. It escalated to the point of us ‘celebs’ being invited onto two boats. Amazing! Check out our official site http://www.lovebombs.co.za
