James Bond hit Skyfall has become the highest grossing film ever at the UK box office.

In just 40 days it has taken £94.28 million to surpass the previous record-holder Avatar.

The 23rd 007 adventure, starring Daniel Craig as the suave secret service agent, was released in the final week of October and has been a huge success around the world.

James Cameron's epic Avatar took £94.03 million over an 11-month period following its release in late 2009.

Bond producer Barbara Broccoli said: "We're overwhelmed with gratitude to the cinema-going audiences in the UK who have made Skyfall the highest grossing film of all time."

The movie series celebrated a milestone this year with the 50th anniversary of the first Bond movie Dr No in October.

In Skyfall, cinemagoers have seen Craig battle with villain Raoul Silva (played by Javier Bardem), who aims to take revenge on his old boss M (Dame Judi Dench).
