Jason Bourne can't be caught. Not by James Bond.

When final weekend box-office numbers were released Monday, Quantum of Solace's whopping $70.4 million debut had been revised—and downsized—to $67.5 million.

The sum is still whopping, and still a record opening for a Bond film. But it's not a record for a Bourne film. With the weekend's final numbers, Matt Damon's The Bourne Ultimatum remains Hollywood's top-opening spy adventure with a $69.3 million debut.

Bond can still beat Bourne, provided Quantum keeps doing business until it surpasses Ultimatum's $227.5 million overall domestic gross. One problem: No Bond film has ever come close to even hitting $200 million.

Stop smirking, Bourne.
