It was fifty years ago today that James Bond hit screens with his first cinematic adventure 'Dr. No.' Now the world is gearing up for 'Skyfall.' We recently got the full theme song and now we've got a new trailer that uses that music, and a featurette to help celebrate the franchise's Golden Jubilee.
Looking at the mammoth 'Bond 50' set, it's a little startling to realize how compact a package it is considering it's full of all the films making up one of the more enduring characters and series in the pop-culture canon. The 22 films, starting with 1962's 'Dr. No' and ending with 2008's 'Quantum of Solace,' and even with a blank space for 'Skyfall' when it comes to disc in 2013 -- a nice bit of long-term thinking that demonstrates that for Hollywood, for 50 years, selling Bond has been like buying bonds -- is a solid investment, but better when you keep an eye on them.
Just this morning, Adele officially confirmed the rumors that she would be singing the theme to 'Skyfall,' the 23rd James Bond film, when she tweeted a photo of the official sheet music. And now you don't have to wait very long to listen to 'Skyfall' by Adele as audio has leaked from the upcoming Bond theme.
Lots of 'Skyfall' goodies landing in at the moment. With under a month until the latest James Bond adventure lands in the UK, the marketing machine is really revving up: Yesterday saw the release of a new TV spot, a banner and the encouraging early IMAX screening news, and now today has gifted us with 11 new 'Skyfall' pics. Check them all out after the break!
Even James Bond finds the time to tweet when the news is important.
The official 007 Twitter account was recently updated with some very interesting release date news for those looking forward to seeing 'Skyfall' on an IMAX screen... or really any screen at all. Turns out we'll be able to see the flick in theaters before its official November 9 release date. So, how early will the Sam Mendes-directed film drop in? Find out after the break!
The 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards was a night filled with surprises, particularly when Julie Bowen of 'Modern Family' beat out Kristen Wiig for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy and when 'Homeland' trumped 'Mad Men' for Outstanding Drama Series. The other surprise came -- surprisingly -- during commercial break where we saw the latest TV spot for the upcoming Daniel Craig-led Bond flick, 'Skyfall.'
We've got a month and a half until the new James Bond film 'Skyfall', which may be why we're being inundated with new material. But - to be fair - this movie hasn't been exactly press shy. Now there's a new video blog focusing on the women in the film (Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe), and a beer commercial featuring Marlohe and Daniel Craig.
