It is the highest grossing Bond movie ever in USA. Reuters reports:

"This is arguably the most anticipated movie of the holiday season and therefore expectations are quite high," said Paul Dergarabedian of box office watcher Media by Numbers. "I think we are going to see tremendous numbers."

Dergarabedian noted U.S. box offices have been on a roll lately with five of the past six weekends beating year ago comparisons. Last weekend family film "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" opened to an eye-popping $63 million.

James Bond: Bond Quantum of Solace cost $200 million to make. It was jointly produced by Eon Productions and MGM. The movie is distributed by Columbia pictures, subsidiary of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
