The official James Bond Facebook page has revealed this new “Bérénice Marlohe Is Sévérine” banner for the eagerly awaited 23rd 007 adventure, ‘Skyfall.’ Marlohe has described her character as being “glamorous and enigmatic”, and that she drew inspiration from Famke Janssen’s ’Golden Eye’ character Xenia Onatopp in playing Sévérine. 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 stories leering and sinisterly creepy lead villain, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw as Q; MI5′s resident gadgets man, Tonia Sotiropoulou, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner; the MI6 Chief of Staff, Ola Rapace, and Ralph Fiennes as Gareth Mallory - who’s been described as “darkly complex.”
I’ve got incredibly high hopes for ‘Skyfall,’ I loved the trailers and I’m a huge fan of Daniel Craig’s more gritty and intense 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. You can read the official synopsis and production notes for ‘Skyfall’ below.

Mia Wasikowska and Dane DeHaan joined a stellar cast for John Hillcoat’s Prohibition gangster epic ‘Lawless.’ As Shia LaBeouf, their co-star in ‘Lawless,’ says, “these guys are just great. They are the future.” Both Wasikowska and DeHaan return the compliment and clearly enjoyed being part of a powerful ensemble cast that included LaBeouf, Guy Pearce, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke. “They are big personalities but they are hard working as well and they put a lot into their work and they care a lot about the work,” says Ms Wasikowska. “They all have that in common. I really loved being part of this cast and it felt special. I did a lot of scenes with Shia and I think he is fantastic in the movie and he’s smart, trying different things and he really wants to do great work and I think he will. And he’s very professional – he is always first on set and always on time working really hard.”
DeHaan agrees and says that LaBeouf helped set the tone for the shoot. “Shia really runs a set. And you can learn from Shia because he is so used to playing that leading man role. He comes prepared and he’s ready to go, he’s cheering everybody on – the grips, the DP, the cast, everybody. He wants everybody to get involved and be part of the team and make the movie work.”
