Daniel Craig is on the heels of becoming part of James Bond movie history.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Craig’s latest Bond installment, Skyfall, grossed some $30.8 million on its opening day on Friday. The franchise’s 23rd film -- Craig's third -- is also on pace to finish the weekend around the $80 million mark, which would give Skyfall the biggest opening weekend for a Bond film. Ever.

Quantum of Solace, the last Craig/Bond film, made $67.5 million its opening weekend back in 2008. It went on to gross more than $586 million worldwide.

In Skyfall, Craig, 44, returns as the sexy secret agent, opposite Dame Judi Dench as M, and Bond film newcomers Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes and Berenice Marlohe.

Naoimi Harris and Ben Whishaw also star as returning characters Miss Moneypenny and Q, respectively.

 

“I don’t do all my stunts,” Craig recently admitted to Jimmy Kimmel on his late night talk show.

“I’d be lying if I said that. But I like the fact that occasionally that you’ll see on screen that it’s my face and it’s me . . . I think audiences hopefully appreciate that. At least, I really hope they do.

Skyfall is playing in theaters everywhere.
