In just over 40 days, the film which stars Daniel Craig has outdone the efforts of the 2009 adventure film Avatar which made 94 million pounds in 11 months.

Although the figures do not take inflation into account, co-producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli revealed how proud they are of how well the 007 movie has done.

“We are very proud of this film and thank everybody, especially Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes, who have contributed to its success,” the Daily Mail quoted them as saying in a statement.

The motion picture which sees Bond and his spymaster M battle villain wizard Silva, played by Javier Bardem, received rave reviews when it was released in October.

Directed by Sam Mendes, the film bagged 870 million dollars in ticket sales around the world, according to movie tracking site

However globally, the spy movie is yet to match Avatar’s record ticket sales, which stands at 2.8 billion dollars.
