JAMES Bond's Skyfall has extended its worldwide box-office rule to North America, hauling in a franchise-record $US87.8 million in its first weekend at US theatres.

Adding in $2.2 million from Thursday night previews at IMAX and other large-format theatres, Skyfall has taken in $US90 million, according to studio estimates.

That lifts the worldwide total for the film to $US518.6 million since it began rolling out overseas in late October.

Internationally, the 23rd Bond flick added $US89 million this weekend to raise its overseas revenue to $US428.6 million.

The third installment starring Daniel Craig as British super-spy Bond, Skyfall outdid the $US67.5 million US debut of 2008's Quantum of Solace, the franchise's previous best opening.
