Skyfall, the latest film in the James Bond spy movie series, collected Rs 27.5 crore at the Indian box office in the first four days. The movie was released in India on Thursday and marks 50 years of Agent 007 on the big screen.

Sources said this could be the second highest opening collection after The Amazing Spiderman.

Distributed and marketed by Sony Pictures India, the movie was shown across 1,052 screens with 907 prints and dubbed in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

The film was released in 2D and IMAX formats.

The previous James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, had earned about Rs 44.4 crore in 2008. The opening day collections of Skyfall were 21 per cent higher than Quantum of Solace.

Multiplexes had also increased ticket prices for the movie. Players said the movie opened well but it remains to be seen whether the enthusiasm sustains over the coming days compared with other big Hollywood franchisees.

“We opened the movie at our IMAX theatre in Bangalore and it had 87 per cent occupancy level even with higher price point.

Overall, the theatre occupancy was in the range of 75-80 per cent across the centres and the opening has been good,” said Gautam Dutta, CEO, PVR.

The movie has Bond fighting to protect M16 as it comes under attack and also testing his loyalty to his boss, M.
