half-of-a-yellow-sun-001

James Mangold’s forthcoming movie The Wolverine boasts a very impressive statistic.

It’s no secret that Sam Mendes’ Skyfall has been one of the biggest films of 2012, but the extent to which the film has been a success around the globe has nonetheless been very surprising.
