It was the kind of news that turned the heads of James Bond fans everywhere, even those who would normally never give the Academy Awards a second glance: all six actors who have played Agent 007 would appear on the 2013 Oscars stage together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic spy franchise. It would be a legendary sight...so it's too bad that it's not happening.
'Skyfall' is a movie very much intended to return James Bond to his classic roots; roots established by actors like Sean Connery. Connery hasn't starred in a movie since 2003's 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' (what a disappointing way to go out...) but his almost ten-year retirement almost ended with a role opposite the character that made him famous.
James Bond fans have to feel like they’re in the midst of a Golden Age. For the first time ever, every Bond film will be available on Blu-ray in one collector’s set (beginning on September 25); we’re loving the latest trailers for ‘Skyfall,’ which makes it look like Sam Mendes will be able to right the 007 ship (after the misfire that was ‘Quantum of Solace’); and now, one of the best Bond movies is coming back to theaters for a limited time only.
