Looking back at the relatively disappointing summer in blockbusters, this fall will perhaps deliver more than we imagined, with films like Jack Reacher, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Life of Pi and even Django Unchained, Zero Dark Thirty and Cloud Atlas hopefully satisfying in the thrills department. But there seems to be one sure-fire pick and that’s Sam Mendes‘ first outing at James Bond with Skyfall.
With a release just next month for UK’ers, Empire has release a batch of stills from the film, which feature Bond getting entangled with both of the main women here, Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
