Despite the Skyfall video blogs being briefer and fluffier than I might care for — I mean, it’s nothing compared to what Peter Jackson‘s doing — these quick ,behind-the-scenes glimpses at James Bond’s 23rd trip to the field have been a joy.
And out to the field we go with this latest installment, which discusses the importance of keeping Bond in an Aston Martin during trips across his motherland. Not just for the sake of style, though; Sam Mendes sees it as one of the more crucial aspects of Bond’s identity, along with how those of his generation relate to the character. The director, while he has the chance, even hints at its relation to Skyfall‘s climax, saying “the last part of the movie [...] deliberately, very consciously, could have taken place in 1962.” Don’t reveal anything else, man.

Three new images have slipped from c7nema and Kinopoisk (via ThePlaylist), which show a bike-riding / crouching Daniel Craig and a frantically escaping Ola Rapace, with whom 007 is engaged in combat during the film’s opening. Take it for what it is, and don’t make a mountain out of a molehill in the meantime.
Take a look below:
On a final note: Those who see The Dark Knight Rises in IMAX this weekend — I think you should, too — will be treated to an exclusive, two-minute-and-thirty-second IMAX teaser. Some Comic-Con attendees got to see it last week, and their recaps make it sound, though more action-packed than anything else, like a fun gateway into Skyfall‘s shadowy plot. [AlbertaFilmRatings]
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.
Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem, Judie Dench, Ben Whishaw, Ola Rapace, Helen McCrory, Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Tonia Sotiropoulou, and Albert Finney star in the film, which is set for a stateside release on November 9th, after bowing in the UK on October 26th.
Have these video blogs been keeping up your anticipation for Skyfall, and do these pictures aid in that?
As much as we’d love to believe certain myths, no filmmaker has simply waltzed into making a masterpiece without cutting their teeth beforehand. Jaws may have been the first modern blockbuster, but Spielberg had already created a terrifying beast with the mechanical semi-truck in a made-for-television film, Duel. Truffaut’s The 400 Blows remains among the [...]
