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 Bond battle with villain Raoul Silva (played by Javier Bardem), who aims to take revenge on his old boss M (Dame Judi Dench).
