'Skyfall' has now made over $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

Sam Mendes' latest chapter in the James Bond saga - starring Daniel Craig as 007 - has surpassed all expectations and is now one of the highest-grossing films ever made.

The previous highest earner in the James Bond franchise was 'Casino Royale', which took just under $600m in 2006.

'Skyfall' is just one of just 14 films to pass the $1 billion mark and others include 'Avengers Assemble', 'Avatar', 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2' and 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

Soon after its November release, 'Skyfall' became the highest grossing film of all time in the UK, raking in a massive £94,277,612 million in just 40 days, knocking previous title-holder 'Avatar' off the top spot.

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli expressed their delight at the news with a statement saying: ''We're overwhelmed with gratitude to the cinema-going audiences in the UK who have made 'Skyfall' the highest grossing film of all time. We are very proud of this film and thank everybody, especially Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes, who have contributed to its success.''

Number 14 isn’t a bad spot to have on the list of the “billionaires club” but then again, it isn’t over with the run in the theater yet. People still pour in to see the film after two months. I saw it and thought it was a decent movie as a standalone action film, but it wasn’t very recognizable as a Bond film since they cut out so much of the iconic content. My DISH coworker and I watched the first two Craig-Bond movies last month, and now I’m going to order the other four Brosnan movies from my DISH Blockbuster @Home service this month for another one. I realized how much I hated having to go out at 8:30 PM to return the movie because I put off going until the last minute. It is so convenient to put the movies in the mailbox and wait for the new one’s to come. Just about the only thing better than the time, gas and aggravation I save is that it makes my wife happy since I used to come home in a bad mood.
