    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The latest installment in the James Bond franchise is the biggest Bond ever, an analyst said today.

    “Skyfall” is estimated by Sony Studios to open to $87.8 million domestically, and is poised to bring in as much as $500 million worldwide in its first week of exhibition, according to Hollywood.com Box Office analyst Paul Dergerabedian.

    The film had already grossed $33 million at special showings in North America Thursday and in general release Friday, according to estimates from Sony studios.

    “With around $346.8 million in the international bank vault through last Thursday, ‘Skyfall’ by the end of the weekend could be flirting with (dare we say?!) a $500 million worldwide gross!” Dergerabedian enthused.

    “Wreck-It Ralph was in second place, with a $33 million weekend. And “Flight” was gliding in third place, with an estimated $15.1 million take.

    Rounding out the 10 most-popular films in the United States and Canada this weekend, as estimated by the studios and collated by Hollywood.com, were “Argo” ($6.7 million), “Taken 2″ ($4 million), “Here Comes The Boom” ($2.6 million), “Cloud Atlas ($2.6 million), “2.5 million), “Pitch Perfect” ($2.5 million), “The Man With Iron Fists” ($2.5 million) and “Hotel Transylvania” (2.4 million).
