New ‘Skyfall’ Video Blog Showcases James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5
This new video blog has landed online for the upcoming 23rd James Bond adventure, ‘Skyfall,’ taking a look at James Bond’s new car, the Aston Martin DB5. Directed by Sam Mendes, ‘Skyfall’ sees 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, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw as Q, 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. Check out the synopsis and production notes for ‘Skyfall’ below.
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 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.
