Bond 23: Skyfall
Well, I guess it’s a better than Quantum of Solace. Still... Skyfall isn’t lighting me on fire on originality, you know? Skyfall is the title of a Tom Cruise movie. Tom Cruise would be really, really excited about something called Skyfall.
Which is the next Bond.
They announced it at a photo call today in London. Daniel Craig was there, of course, joined by Javier Bardem, the villain, and the two new Bond Girls Berenice Marlohe and Naomie Harris (she’ll become Moneypenny), and M, Dame Judi Dench who showed off a little sass in her pose technique. Also confirmed to the cast are Ralph Fiennes and Albert Finney. Skyfall will be directed by Sam Mendes who apparently wants you to call them “Bond Ladies” now and not Bond Girls. Sure. That’ll really stick.
Shooting begins today and the film is scheduled for release next year. The Daily Mail had a side by side shot of Daniel from 2006 when he was first confirmed as Bond compared to the way he looks today. Click here to see. A lot more grizzled, non?
