The new James Bond film Quantum of Solace continued its record-breaking
The new James Bond film Quantum of Solace continued its record-breaking run as Daniel Craig's second outing as 007 topped the U.S. and Canadian charts with $70.4 million in ticket sales over the weekend.

The North American release of the 22nd Bond film, directed by Marc Forster, which picks up where 2006's Casino Royale left off, became the biggest-opening Bond film of all time, overtaking the 2002 Die Another Day, which took $47.1 million in its first three days.

The action movie has taken $322 million since it premiered in Britain on October 31.

In the action-packed sequel, Bond battles environmentalists to stop them taking over Bolivia's water supply while trying to exact revenge for the death of Vesper Lynd, the woman he loved, aided by new Bond-girl Olga Kurylenko.

The film, however, has caused a stir in Russia with communist groups attacking Ukrainian-born Kurylenko, who was discovered by a talent scout in the Moscow subway, for appearing in a movie about the "enemy of the Soviet people."

However the controversy did not affect the Russian release with Quantum raking in $10.4 million in its first three days pushing the popular animated sequel, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, into second place.
