Two New Looks At Daniel Craig As James Bond In ‘Skyfall’
With the 23rd James Bond adventure, ‘Skyfall,’ opening in cinemas in 137 days (not that I’m counting or anything!), two new images have emerged online of Daniel Craig as Bond. Scanned from Total Magazine’s ‘Skyfall’ cover story, the first image features Daniel Craig’s James Bond in London’s National Gallery. The second image comes courtesy of the official James Bond website, 007.com, as part of a cross promotion with OMEGA Watches. ‘Skyfall’ marks the seventh time 007 has worn an OMEGA Watch on film, with the new “Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M SKYFALL” limited to a run of 5,007 pieces. OMEGA offer up the following details about the official ‘Skyfall’ watch: “The new Planet Ocean follows in the footsteps of its illustrious predecessors by sporting a raft of specialist diving features including a rotating diving bezel, a chromium nitride diving scale and water resistance up to 600 metres. The 42mm watch has a 007 at the 7 o’clock position, a 007 engraved on the clasp and on the caseback, “SKYFALL 007″ is visible through a sapphire crystal.”
Directed by Sam Mendes, ‘Skyfall’ will see Daniel Craig and Judi Dench continue their roles as 007 and M. The cast also includes Naomie Harris as a field agent named Eve, Javier Bardem as “Silva” the lead villain, Ben Whishaw as Q, Albert Finney, Tonia Sotiropoulou, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner; the MI6 Chief of Staff, Ola Rapace, Bérénice Marlohe as the “glamorous and enigmatic Sévérine,” and Ralph Fiennes as Gareth Mallory – who’s been described as “darkly complex.”
I’ve got high hopes for ‘Skyfall,’ I loved the films teaser trailer and I’m a huge fan of Daniel Craig’s incarnation of James Bond. This latest 007 chapter was shot at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, Scotland, Whitehall in London, Shanghai and Istanbul. The screenplay is written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. ‘Skyfall’ will begin its worldwide roll-out in the UK and Ireland on October 26th, with a North American release following on November 9th. The Director of Photography is Roger Deakins, a nine-time Oscar nominee who previously shot the films ‘Jarhead’ and ‘Revolutionary Road’ for Mendes. Composer Thomas Newman will score the film.

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. SKYFALL marks the return of Daniel Craig as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007, as well as Judi Dench reprising her role as M. The film also stars franchise newcomers Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem and Naomie Harris. The film is directed by Sam Mendes from a screenplay written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and John Logan. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are producers.
