Following in the steps of Peter Jackson, Sam Mendes and his 007 team are releasing a series of video blogs from the set of the latest Bond film. We’ve got the first today, giving us a brief but enticing glimpse at Skyfall. While I wish they were much more comprehensive, it isn’t a bad way to kick things off. Mendes goes into his love for the series, then talks about the pressures of directing such a massive movie and how it is his first time actually directing a film in the UK, the place where he grew up. Check it out below via 007.
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.
Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem, Judie Dench, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Ola Rapace, Helen McCrory and Albert Finney star in the film set for stateside on November 9, 2012 after bowing in the UK on October 26.
