Though failed to rule over the domestic box office chart after its opening-day triumph in the U.K., "Casino Royale" turns out to still have something to boast of. Successfully collecting $43.4 million from 31 markets overseas, this latest Bond pic has wonderfully topped the foreign box office for the weekend ended Sunday, November 19, 2006, making its worldwide gross pass a $80-million mark for sure in its debut.

Besides pulling $25.5 million at 988 U.K theaters, the 21st installment of the superspy franchise also amazingly made its way to score $3.3 million in 427 screens in India, the biggest-ever opening for a non-local film in the country. With this great start, the flick sure has big potential to surpass the $271 million mark set by its predecessor "Die Another Day" four years ago.
