The next 007 movie

SKYFALL


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-15558355

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.

I've been waiting for this for the longest time! I also love Craig as Bond. James Bond in general is such a badass. One of my fave fictional characters of all time.

Here's where I agree with you. Those are the only two Roger Moore 007 flicks that I like and have the DVDs of. The reason they were better was that he played the character in a more serious manner. Not Craig serious, but Connery serious.

And OBTW, Dalton got a raw deal when EOn switched to Brosnan. He was a very good Bond.

Here's why I don't care for Craig as Bond:



They should never have a Bond girl tower over Bond. With Craig that would be a tall order (pardon the pun). The girl in red looks like she can kick the living **** out of him, badass or not.

James Bond Press Conference Confirms ‘Skyfall’ Is Finally Coming, With a New Bond Girl

This morning in London, Sony Pictures had a big press conference about the next James Bond movie, the one that has been rumored and delayed and speculated about for months upon years. Sitting up there on stage were Daniel Craig, and Judi Dench, and director Sam Mendes and even Javier Bardem, who is gonna play the bad guy. It really happened. The movie is totally coming now. They had a press conference: They can't back out at this point.

The more prurient of you are probably wondering: "So, who's the hot Bond girl?" Well, you Y-chromosome-driven Beavis: It's Bérénice Marlohe, a French model who has, in fact, never appeared in an English-speaking movie before. (She has barely been in any French-speaking ones.)

She will play "a glamorous, enigmatic character named Severin." That's to say: A Bond girl. If you want to know a bit more about what she looks like -- and we suspect you do -- JoBlo.com has the definitive photo gallery.

Connery was the best.
Craig brought a new level of toughness to the character.
Brosnan should have had the role back in the 80's but I guess TV screwed that up.
Dalton was good but for some reason just never rang true in the character.
Moore played it way too cheesy.
I need to go back and see the one film with Lazenby because I don't remember him at all.

Craig is badass.

Sounds like they found a good bad guy. Not sure if QoS even had a villain.

This. I didn't totally hate QoS, but it was a huge letdown after Casino Royale. Then again, CR is one of my favorite movies... And Daniel Craig is ****ing awesome.

Haha I'm pretty psyched about that, too. Skyfall + The Hobbit is going to make 2012 kick ass for movies.

Sure they did, it was the one wimpy guy in a suit telling the dictator of another country to kill people for water.... Or something like that...

Which if not it would bring her down to Craig's height. Connery WAS badass AND looked down at his bond girls.

Agree with almost all of what you are saying, except Brosnan. the first time around I was against it even though I enjoyed him as Remington Steele. At that time he was twoo young and thin and weak-chinned to be Bond, IMO. At his second chance his looks had matured enough to look more 'Bondish.'

Also in defense of Brosnan, he did keep complaining about the progressively cheesier direction the producers were taking the Bond flicks and wanted to play an edgier Bond. EON, ironically pretty much fired him and started making edgy Bond movies. I think that was their slap in his face for his bitching.

My only problem with Brosnan was his distractingly high voice. He had the least manly voice among all of the actors who have played Bond.

Lastly, Lazenby was good but he was in the unfortunate position to follow the legend.

That's because you just assumed her heals are 6 inches. Look at the pic below. I lined up the bottom of Craig's foot with hers excluding the high heal. You decide.

Look, Craig is a good actor, but he is too short and blonde to be Bond. Plus that haircut reveals a bit of a pointy head unbecoming 007.

While I agree that Moore brought a little too much cheese, I don't know for sure if that was him, or the director wanting that. I'm going to blame it on the director since he also decided it would be a good idea to tie in the fat police officer annoying guy into one movie, and then coincidentally have him on vacation in Japan in another movie. (The scene where bond is escaping on the boat with the school of ninjas chasing him).

It's the same thing with Brosnan. He wasn't a bad BOND... but the director/writer had him doing way too much unrealistic stuff with too many stupid one liners. The Bronson movies writing was terrible, except for Goldeneye which was mostly just guilty of cheesy one liners.

So what? Stallone's shorter than that. Bogart had to wear platform heels so Ingrid Bergman wouldn't tower over him in Casablanca. You've got Joe Pesci in your avatar, he'd have to stand on a box to punch Craig in the chest.

I love Bogart, but neither he nor Stallone could play 007.
