Skyfall is just over a week away from hitting the big screen in the UK, and the anticipation is naturally running very high. The early reviews are in – you can read our review here – and they are almost universally well-loved.
Daniel Craig reprises his role once more in the lead, and now the latest instalment in the Video Blogs has been released, taking us behind the scenes with ten-time Oscar-nominated composer Thomas Newman (American Beauty, The Iron Lady) and co. on the recording of the score.
“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.”
Craig is joined by an all-star cast, headed up by Javier Bardem, Bérénice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Whishaw, Albert Finney, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace, and Dame Judi Dench.
Sam Mendes, the Oscar-winning director of American Beauty, is making his Bond debut behind the camera, with a script penned by Bond frequents Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and the ever-brilliant John Logan (Gladiator, Coriolanus).
Skyfall will be released in regular and IMAX theatres on 26th October here in the UK. In this US, it will land in IMAX theatres a day early on 8th November, before going wide on 9th November. Tickets are already on sale, and selling fast, so be sure to book your tickets early if you want to be amongst the first to see it on the big screen. For now, here’s the great new video to tie us over whilst we await the film’s arrival. Enjoy.
