New Bond movie QUANTUM OF SOLACE is keeping its stranglehold on the international box office chart, taking $40.6 million (GBP27 million) in 72 markets.
The action thriller, starring Daniel Craig, easily fights off competition from Body of Lies, which is at two with takings of $10 million (GBP6.6 million).
Animated sequel Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa brought in $9 million (GBP6 million) to claim third place, while vampire film Twilight - which had a limited global release - opens in fourth place with $8.1 million (GBP5.4 million) in five markets. This figure pales considerably compared to its $70.6 million (GBP47.1 million) haul from its opening weekend in the U.S., which is already breaking records.
The international box office chart is rounded out by High School Musical 3: Senior Year, which is in fifth place with profits of $4.5 million (GBP3 million).
