Bond Takes Aim at Adele: 'Skyfall' One-Sheet & Theme Song

News from the world's foremost British secret agent/suit-wearer/lothario today, as the domestic poster for Skyfall has arrived online, showing off a simple approach and just a hint of Daniel Craig in action.  The American poster for 007's twenty-third official movie adventure is accompanied by two banners featuring Berenice Marlohe and Ralph Fiennes.  And because that's not enough, we also know just who will perform the Skyfall title song.

Music before posters.  It's Adele.  The performer or performers on any Bond title song are always the source of many rumors in the lead-up to a new sequel, and the British singer-songwriter has been repeatedly rumored for Skyfall since May.  Showbiz 411 now confirms that the song, which is apparently just called "Skyfall" at this point, will definitely be created by Adele.  This will be her first new song since her album 21 caused you and everyone you know to cry just a little bit.

When Martin Campbell quasi-rebooted the series with Casino Royale, it was Chris Cornell singing "You Know My Name," and Quantum of Solace's song, "Another Way to Die," was performed by Jack White and Alicia KeysAdele, a globally popular British musician, joins an impressive roster of artists who've contributed to the franchise via title songs.  Big acts to belt out Bondian music include Paul McCartney & Wings, Tina Turner, Duran Duran, Tom Jones, Nancy Sinatra, a-ha, and Madonna.

Okay, poster time, with three pieces of promotional material courtesy of Coming Soon.  The domestic poster for Skyfall has Craig reclining and taking aim with his trusty Walther PPK.  It's not a complicated design, but Bond's an iconic character, so it doesn't need to be anything else.  Then there are two banners showing off one Bond Girl, Marlohe's Severine, and Fiennes as a character named Mallory.  Fiennes's role remains pretty mysterious, but at least now we know what to call him.

Here's the vague synopsis of Bond's next outing:

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.  In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her.  As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

Skyfall arrives on regular-sized and IMAX screens Stateside on November 9th.
