For 50 years James Bond has delivered the platinum standard for super spy intrigue. 007 has successfully adapted from  Cold War and early detente eras to an age where software and faceless terrorism controls. Proving that the British agent still has his dapper , no holds barred shaken and stirred with a twist attitude, "Skyfall" opened to a franchise record of over $87 million dollars for the first three days of a hybrid Veterans Day holiday, where many have a day off on Monday.

Disney's "Wreck it Ralph" finished second gobbling about $33 million dollars at the Boxoffice to push it to a $93 million dollar cume for two weekends. "Flight" took in about $15 million for #3 followed by the CIA Iranian Sting pic, "Argo," at $6.75 million which hits an $85 million draw in its fifth weekend , and "Taken II" in fifth place.

"Paranormal Activity II," "Sinister" and "Silent Hill Revolution" all fell out of the top ten.

Next weekend brings the blood sucking vampire behemoth , "Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2" and a wide opening for Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln."  "Breaking Dawn Part Two" will be boosted by a nine or ten o'clock something debut, preceded at some cinemas by "Part One" and a marathon of the entire "Twilight" series.
