Quantum Of Solace Breaks Bond Box Office Record

New James Bond movie Quantum Of Solace has shot to the top of the U.S. box office, after grossing $70.4 million (GBP47 million) in its opening weekend.

The previous biggest debut was 2002's Die Another Die, while the last Bond film, Casino Royale, took $30m less.

The action film pushed last week's top film, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, into second place, taking $36.1m (24m).
