The next 007 movie

SKYFALL

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 liked it better than CR because there's only so much action in a casino, and there more emotional impact at the end of this one.

It was hard to buy the Bond-Vesper relationship. I mean was he really that broken up over some broad he had known for a few days?

Great story. Kind of boring movie. Not really what I think of as a Bond movie at all.

Doesn't even touch CR.

Very rare that I agree with you but you nailed it. This isn't just a great "Bond" movie.. it is a legitimately great film. I went into it with reasonable expectations and was blown away.

Take all the fun things you love about Bond movies, add in a healthy dose of nostalgia and place them inside a film with fantastic acting (Albert Finney!), solid plot and great dialogue and you have Skyfall.

Until this movie I thought of Bond movies as guilty pleasures. (even Casino Royale)

This felt like "the" movie that officially reboots the franchise with all the pieces in place for a solid run of 3 or 4 more films.

It's better than CR because:

1. The emotional impact is greater.

2. The villain is better.

3. Technical stuff like cinematography and choreographed fight sequences are mind-blowingly good.

And then they went in and threw fanboy bones all over the place and my balls were drained.

emotionally the movie did basically nothing for me. I did like the villain, only because i liked No Country for Old Men. The cinematography was nothing special. In the end, all i got from the movie was a sore ass. and this was a theatre with leather recliners.

Arguing over whether Casino Royale or Skyfall is the better film is like arguing over whether it is better to see the Broncos lose or the Raiders lose.

The wife and I went and saw Skyfall yesterday. It's certainly the best Bond of the Daniel Craig era, I've no clue if it's the best overall. The biggest difference for me between Skyfall and Casino Royale, is CR is barely a Bond film. It's a great movie, and I love it. But it's no more Bond than in name. For all intents and purposes, it's an origin story. For Pete's sake, we don't even hear the Bond theme until the very end. Skyfall was very much a Bond movie.

For me, this trilogy has been more about getting Bond to where we recognize him as Bond. CR and QoS was getting him to this point. Now we're at Skyfall, and we see everything we know about Bond up until CR: M, Moneypenny, Q, the Aston Martin, the shaken martini, the gadgetry, Adele's 'Skyfall' as a throwback to the older themes...

You have to be kidding. The scenes in Scotland are a visual feast. Especially at night.

The same goes for the stuff at night in the high-rise building chasing the assassin. Just gorgeous to look at.

As the movie's plot was evolving, I was expecting Skyfall to be among my favorites of the year. However, it's as if the movie detached itself from the intensity of its rising actions, and I never felt the suspense I did when Silva stormed the courthouse.

Overall it was a solid 8.5, and I'll likely watch it again in a couple of weeks.

There wasn't much suspense because it was very, very predictable. That didn't make it unlikable, though. At least for me.

Theres always very little suspense in any 007 film because its not like they are going to ever let Bond die.

You're aware this is a Bond movie, right? This is the same series that cast Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist and gave us Grace Jones as a girl baddie.
