The latest James Bond flick has made its mark on the movie world.

This weekend, "Skyfall" had the biggest opening of a Bond movie ever, raking in $87.8 million in ticket sales.

The Daniel Craig-led film beat out the animated video-game tale "Wreck-It Ralph," which brought in $33.1 million, and the Denzel Washington movie "Flight," which saw $15.1 million in ticket sales. "Ralph" and "Flight" both opened last weekend.
