The very first teaser trailer for Skyfall has arrived online, bright and early for the Britons in James Bond's native soil, in the middle of the night for those of us in the colonies. The trailer's coming was announced last week when the teaser poster was unveiled, now it's here to provide our first real look at footage from the twenty-third cinematic outing of Ian Fleming's world-class spy and lover of ladies the world over.
Synopsis: In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M 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.
The very first teaser trailer for the twenty-third cinematic adventure of unstoppable superspy James Bond has arrived online, concisely informing audiences that Daniel Craig is back in Skyfall. Beyond that, it's not exactly revealing, but it does evoke classic Bond to such an extent that you can almost hear that familiar theme playing as Craig struts.
Usually, when folks are casually talking about movies, they ask questions like, "Who's in it?" You rarely ever hear, "Who's the production designer?" Well the production designer on the twenty-third cinematic adventure of James Bond is Dennis Gassner, an Oscar-winner whose credits include Big Fish, Jarhead, and a whole bunch of Coen Brothers joints. The latest video blog from Skyfall focuses on the contribution of Gassner, the architect of Bond's environment.
Attention, Bondophiles, a bunch of new images from Skyfall have appeared online, along with the latest in the ongoing series of videoblogs. With the exception of two official images, up until now we've been seeing exclusively spy photos from the set of Bond's 23th cinematic outing, but these are actual stills, giving a sense of how nine-time Oscar nominee/cinematographer extraordinaire Roger Deakins is handling the first Bond feature to be shot digitally.
Last week, we saw two new video blogs promoting Skyfall, both highlighting the lovely ladies of James Bond's latest globe-trotting adventure. We were introduced to Naomie Harris in intensive weapons training as MI-6 field agent Eve, as well Berenice Marlohe as the probably dangerous or at least-bad guy-affiliated Bond Girl Severine. Beautiful women are great and all, but what about Ian Fleming's James Bond, the world's foremost spy and unstoppable ladykiller?
For decades, Ian Fleming's swinging superspy James Bond has been chasing bad guys around the world, beating the hell out of people, and generally acting as an embodiment of male wish-fulfillment. As such, Bond is nothing without the beautiful Bond Girls he so frequently beds. In Skyfall, the twenty-third cinematic adventure of 007, Daniel Craig will play Bond against two new additions to the Bond Girl canon: Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe. Two new official video blogs offer profiles of Harris and Marlohe's characters, as well as some nifty behind the scenes footage.
Yesterday we saw a featurette focusing on one of the new CGI beasties in Wrath of the Titans, but today, Warner Bros. has released the first official clip from the sequel to 2010's Clash of the Titans remake. While that featurette was all about the fire-breathing Chimera, this clip, clocking in at just over a minute, has formidable actors spitting figurative hot fire. Principally, we're talking about Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes, returning to their respective roles as Zeus and his brother Hades.
Next Friday, Wrath of the Titans arrives in two and three dimensions at theaters nationwide, and Warner Bros. has released a new two-minute featurette to get your ass in a seat in a week and a half.
As a sequel, Wrath of the Titans is obligated to contain certain elements from the first film, and like its predecessor, 2010's Clash of the Titans remake, the new film has no shortage of giant monstrous beasts wreaking havoc on the ancient world. The Chimera is just one of these destruct-O-monsters, but he/she/it is the first to get their own featurette.
Just yesterday, unofficial photos from the London set of Skyfall revealed our first look at Javier Bardem as the still-mysterious villain of James Bond's twenty-third cinematic adventure, during which Bond will surely kill myriad bad guys, sex up many ladies, and drive most recklessly. Today, we have another crop of set photos that aren't as excited as yesterday's first look, but they relate specifically to Bond and his tendency towards classic British automotive engineering.
