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 Keys. Adele, 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.
