The next 007 movie

SKYFALL

Bond film called Skyfall

By Tim Masters, Entertainment and arts correspondent, BBC News

The title of the 23rd James Bond film has been confirmed as Skyfall.

The latest 007 adventure will star Daniel Craig for the third time. Leading ladies have been confirmed as French actress Berenice Marlohe and Naomie Harris.

Skyfall is being directed by Sam Mendes, who won an Oscar for 1999's American Beauty.

Mendes said the storyline will take the secret agent to London, China, Turkey and Scotland.

It will see Bond's loyalty tested to M, his superior, while espionage headquarters MI6 faces an attack.

The movie, which sees the return of Dame Judi Dench as spy boss M, will also star Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Javier Bardem as the villain of the piece.

It will be released in the UK on 26 October 2012.

Craig told reporters in London that the cast would start filming sequences for the new movie later on Thursday.

Much speculation about the new film has focused on what Mendes will bring to the franchise, with some suggesting he will tone down - or even abandon altogether - the action sequences.

But the director denied that this was the case. He told reporters in London that the "fantastic script" had "all the elements of a classic Bond movie, including - to quell any rumours - lots of action".

When asked what fans could expect from the latest film, he added: "The movie will reveal everything, and there's lots of surprises."
Producer Barbara Broccoli said no-one had yet been chosen to write and perfom the Bond theme tune.

Financial troubles

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of the first Bond movie, 1962's Dr No.

James Bond is one of the longest-running franchises in film history, but Bond 23 will mark the end of a four year gap.
The last 007 outing was in 2008's Quantum of Solace, directed by Marc Forster.

Work on the 23rd film was suspended in April 2010 because of uncertainty over the company's future.

The franchise had been on hold amid financial troubles, with MGM filing for bankruptcy protection last November.

A rescue deal and restructuring plan put US firm Spyglass Entertainment at the helm of MGM, which had struggled due to several box office flops and a DVD sales slump.

Craig - who made his Bond debut in Casino Royale in 2006 - is the sixth actor to play the British secret agent in the official Bond series.
Sir Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Sir Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan preceded him in the iconic role.

Casino Royale, was the most successful instalment in the franchise's 49-year history, making $594m (385m) worldwide.

Haha. I was thinking the exact same thing. Every time I see a movie like this I wonder about the lives of the random bad guys.

Finally saw it this was Craig's first movie I'd call a true Bond film.

Whatever... he doesn't fit your preconceived notion of what Bond should look like. Don't you think it's time you got over it?

Preconceived notions are difficult to overcome, so I get it.

That said, this was the closest film in 50 years to capture the essence of the Sean Connery led James Bond.

As others have mentioned, this film completed the "Origin Trilogy". It taught us who Bond was before he became the true 007. Everything in this film had reason and the final scene was, IMO, amazing, fun and led me to believe that this "origin" period is over: The next wave of Bond films will return to the gadgets, intrigue and Bond girls of the early 60's.

Or so I hope.

I loved it. The way he approached the casino in the boat reminded me of the old school films.

How was Casino Royale not considered a true Bond film?

I can see how QOS was kinda crappy, but Casino Royale was great.

No Q. No gadgets. No suave.

don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVED Casino Royale, but it really wasn't a true Bond movie.

Yhe whole Craig series has been a "Bond becoming Bond" series. Bruce Wayne wasn't Batman until he became Batman.

No. This is James Bond



Find me some guy with 80% of this guy's suave-machismo, and I'll give up the fight.

Personally, Connery isn't even the second best Bond. But seriously, just because your favorite Bond looks that way doesn't mean every Bond has to. Get the **** over it.

I was a Craig resister and I just watched Skyfall, a great film in all aspects of Bond films. I'm a fan again now.

I love Connery as an actor, but as Bond... pass.
