    Skyfall did NOT have a profit of $910,526,981. If the author states this, then the whole book is questionable, IMO. The author took the worldwide box-office and subtracted the production cost. But rentals are about half box-office, so rentals were about $555 million and subtracting the $200 million production budget leaves $355 million. Marketing was somewhere between $100 and $200 million. Let's call it $150 million. That leaves $205 million. Now apply Hollywood accounting and at best, the profit was around $100 million, although I can practically guarantee you that "on the books", this film lost money.

    “For example, among the indispensable nuggets of trivia are the facts that Skyfall is the most successful film with a profit of $910,526,981,”

    I agree. If the above quote is in the book than the author has no concept of how boxoffice profits are calculated.

    My numbers are a bit different for Skyfall.


    Total Lifetime Grosses
    Domestic: $304,360,277 27.5%
    + Foreign: $804,200,736 72.5%
    = Worldwide: $1,108,561,013

    With a production cost of $200 million and a 3X multiplier to break even profit is about $500 million. Not too shabby.

    It definitely did not lose money.
