James Bond came to the rescue of Cineworld after new figures showed the release of Skyfall helped drive a turnaround in revenues during last year.

The cinema chain said sales were up 2.4% in the year to December 27, offsetting a 1.4% decline in the summer as film fans stayed at home to enjoy one-off events such as the Diamond Jubilee, Euro 2012 and London Olympics.
