Yet another new official clip from next month's Skyfall has made its way online, and unlike its predecessors, this one doesn't involve Daniel Craig's James Bond exchanging double entendres, destroying a moving train with construction equipment, or facing his newest enemy. Instead, it has Bond hanging out in the British Museum and meeting up with his new quartermaster for the first time.
After a longer than expected break between Bond movies, MGM and Sony Pictures are apparently looking to make up the difference by inundating the internet with ceaseless Skyfall hype. The latest addition to the wave of Bondian promotional material is another official clip, one that puts Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem face to face.
The second official clip from Skyfall has sexily sidled online, confirming that, with less than a month until the domestic release, this promotional effort is all about shock and awe.
So last week, the Skyfall title song by Adele officially debuted, causing quite a ruckus and inspiring even those who dismissed the choice of musician to admit that it sounds pretty damn sharp. So we know that "Skyfall" the song sounds good, but what about Skyfall the score? A substantial sampling of composer Thomas Newman's contribution to Bond's latest lady-banging, henchmen-killing, product-placing adventure is now available for a listen online.
Every James Bond movie has to have a super-nifty, aesthetically memorable opening credit sequence, and that sequence must be accompanied by a suitably sexy song sung by a popular musician. For next month's Skyfall, that song is provided by Adele, and though we'll have to wait a month to see the actual title sequence, the song, called, naturally, "Skyfall" is available for a listen online right now.
Over the twenty-two previous movies in his franchise, James Bond has proven that he can kill bad guys in any setting, including indoors, outdoors, on mountains, in deserts, on the Golden Gate Bridge, and even in space. So killing henchpersons underwater is no sweat for 007 at this point, but a new Skyfall videoblog chronicles the difficulties of actually filming underwater fisticuffs.
Without a proper villain, James Bond is just a ridiculously handsome, charming, and capable secret agent who flies all over the planet beating the hell out of people and bedding impossibly beautiful women. Okay, so Ian Fleming's quintessential wish-fulfillment superspy is still pretty cool without a proper bad guy, but as a new international trailer for Skyfall proves, an imposing villain certainly helps make 007 a solid hero.
We ended last week with news as to who would sing the title song to Skyfall, James Bond's twenty-third cinematic adventure. That news was accompanied by an official domestic one-sheet that went unconventional in its presentation of Daniel Craig in action as Ian Fleming's sex-addicted killing and spying machine.
We're starting this week with a look at an international poster selling Bond in his native land, the United Kingdom.
Sort of spoilers, ho!
Over twenty-three movies in a franchise, certain rhythms establish themselves, and one of the standard beats in any 007 picture is the opening sequence. James Bond's adventures typically kick off with Ian Fleming's handsome superspy right in the middle of an operation, providing an energetic start that may or may not have anything to do with the primary plotline.
A brand new behind the scenes featurette details the making of Skyfall's opener. If you've been enjoying the mystery surrounding this new Bond movie, it'd be best to skip this one. If you're comfortable getting a good idea of the Skyfall start, then give it a watch.
With summer movie season all wrapped up, it's time for fans of big, bombastic action and recognizable franchises to look towards the future. We needn't look too far, as the twenty-third movie adventure of Mr. James Bond is just a few short months away. To remind us that the ultimate lover of ladies, killer of bad guys, and wearer of suits is returning in Skyfall, today we have five new images involving Daniel Craig, along with gorgeous woman, an incarcerated villain, and one major motion picture director.
