For anyone suffering from withdrawals since the Olympics ended a few days back will, there's a diluted substitute online today. The latest video blog chronicling the production of Skyfall is exceedingly British, and the mere presence of Craig in the dapper suits of James Bond will allow the trembled, lettuce-toothed junkie to pretend, for about a minute and a half, that it's several Fridays ago and Daniel Craig is escorting the Queen to the opening ceremony.
As a direct result of the Olympic games in London, there's a certain amount of Anglophilia going around. James Bond is a global signifier of British-ness, so what better time for not one, but two new theatrical trailers for Skyfall to arrive? These two full-length trailers represent our best look so far at Bond's twenty-third movie outing, and both have pretty much everything you'd expect or want from a 007 preview.
Friday's Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony was a celebration of all thins British, from Mr. Bean and Lord Voldemort to sheep and the smokestack carcinogens of the Industrial Revolution. It was only natural, then, that creative director Danny Boyle would include Ian Fleming's superspy, that ultrasuave, sophisticated embodiment of imperialist ass-kickery and raw sexual charisma. Daniel Craig's short-film appearance alongside the real Queen and her Corgis wasn't James Bond's only contribution to the festivities, however.
It's fitting that on the very same day we saw the first clip from The Bourne Legacy, a trio of new images from Skyfall have arrived online. The three stills from James Bond's twenty-third cinematic fisticuffs-and-copulation-fest show Daniel Craig in action mode as 007. He's looking stylish, loading his standard Walther PPK, and riding a motorbike, presumably in pursuit of Ola Rapace, also on a motorbike.
In his two-film tenure as James Bond, Daniel Craig has played a 007 whose primary gadgets are apparently his fists and his boundless capacity for violence, but it seems that will change in this year's Skyfall. The twenty-third cinematic outing of Ian Fleming's world-class superspy and one-man STD-emporium will reincorporate fan favorite character Q, and a new image from the film is our first look at Ben Whishaw as the younger gadget-master.
Through Ian Fleming's original novels and more than twenty theatrical features, an unparalleled suavity and gentlemanly sophistication have always been part of James Bond's appeal. Daniel Craig's take on the character may be the most stripped down – he's a blunt instrument, a man comfortable with brutal, shitkicking violence – but he still looks sharp in a suit. The challenges of dressing one of the world's most famous fictitious lotharios is covered in a brand new video blog promoting Skyfall, the 23rd cinematic 007 adventure.
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.
