Behind-The-Scenes Looks At Daniel Craig, Bérénice Marlohe & Ola Rapace For ‘Skyfall’
Hot on the heels of the release of the films first two theatrical trailers last week, James Bond Brasil and Mi6-HQ have debuted this collection of images from photographer Greg Williams’ ‘Bond On Set: Filming Skyfall’ book, which takes a behind-the-scenes look at the forthcoming 23rd James Bond adventure, ‘Skyfall.’ The book is said to “capture the glamour and excitement of film-making on location with a spectacular portfolio of photographs by authorised Bond stills photographer Greg Williams, as he creates a unique visual record of the making of the movie. The first published book to reveal the stars, locations and set pieces, ‘Bond On Set: Filming Skyfall’ is a stylish souvenir of a soon-to-be classic movie.” The ‘Bond On Set: Filming Skyfall’ book is timed with the release of the 23rd Bond film and the 50th anniversary of the movie franchise, set for release from October 1st.
Directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Revolutionary Road, Road to Perdition), ‘Skyfall’ sees Daniel Craig and Judi Dench continue their roles as James Bond 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 trailers 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.
