"The name is Bond...can I interest you in a watch?"
Bond movies are an event. Not only to showcase action, technological gadgets, and beautiful actresses, Bond movies are also an event to sell watches, cars, and, in the case of the upcoming 23rd James Bond movie Skyfall, even Heineken beer. Yes, advertisers want to ride the crest of cool that Britain's 007 (Daniel Craig) will display in the movie and use it as an opportunity to sell, sell, sell. As Craig explained earlier this year about Skyfall's product placement: "We have relationships with a number of companies so that we can make this movie. The simple fact is that, without them, we couldn’t do it. It’s unfortunate but that’s how it is."
And so, it's no surprise that the latest TV spot is focused on selling Bond's new watch, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, while also revealing some new footage of the secret agent in action, and, at one point, showing Bond utter his most legendary catchphrase. selling only the best trailers

Let's stand tall and face the new Skyfall trailer together.
Last week, singer Adele's theme song for the upcoming 23rd James Bond movie Skyfall was released online, prior to Daniel Craig's appearance on Saturday Night Live and coinciding with the release of the Bond documentary Everything of Nothing: The Untold Story of 007. With Skyfall only a month away, everything is coming up Bond lately and the latest trailer for the movie has taken footage from the movie and added Adele's theme song to it. The result should please Bond and Adele fans alike.trailers is where we start

Another Bardem villain, another wild haircut.
Only the imposing silhouette of Javier Bardem's blonde-haired, "classic Bond villain" Silva was revealed in the first trailer for the upcoming Skyfall, but plenty more was revealed in a pair of trailers released in July. While it's been known that Skyfall will see Bond's (Daniel Craig) loyalty to M (Judi Dench) get tested when her past comes back to haunt her, it shouldn't be much of a surprise that Bardem is doing the "haunting." Anyone that saw the Oscar–winning No Country For Old Men, know that Bardem's villains always come bearing an unusual haircut, but, as Craig is warned in the latest international trailer, Bardem is also ready to teach Bond about "fear." trailers, all trailers

One of the characteristics of the movies based on Sir Ian Fleming's classic British super secret agent, James Bond, is how international they are in scope. Each installment takes us on an exotic journey to far-off locales as 007 circles the globe on the hunt for international terrorists and evil masterminds. The 23rd James Bond movie, Skyfall, is no exception, with the opening, pre-credits sequence of the movie finding Bond (Daniel Craig) racing through the streets of Istanbul, Turkey. A new featurette has just been released that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the "very ambitious opening action sequence," with commentary from director Sam Mendes (Revolutionary Road), Craig and Naomie Harris, who plays MI6 field agent Eve. watch the new featurette >> Posted 09.11.12 by BrentJS
You can't take the London out of James Bond and based on a new behind-the-scenes-look at Skyfall, you can't take James Bond out of London. Director Sam Mendes, Judi Dench (M), and Bond himself, Daniel Craig, talk about shooting 007's latest adventure in the English capital.
The clip shows how much access Mendes got to shoot in London where they shot scenes at some of the city's most iconic locations, including Whitehall and the London Underground. Like Craig says, London is Bond's home. Much of the plot of Skyfall has been kept under wraps but we do know Bond's loyalty to M is tested when her past comes back to haunt her. more skyfall >> Posted 08.16.12 by reelz
See, James Bond fans, we told you not to fret. Just because Skyfall will see 007 (Daniel Craig) cruising around in a Range Rover Evoque and racing through the streets of Istanbul on a Honda CRF250R motorcycle, that doesn't mean that director Sam Mendes (Revolutionary Road) has trash-canned Bond's history of driving classy cars. In fact, the classic Aston Martin DB5 will make its fifth appearance in a James Bond movie in Skyfall, an inclusion that Mendes reveals in a new video blog about the movie was a "thematic" decision, about tying together "the old and the new." watch the new Skyfall video blog >> Posted 07.20.12 by BrentJS
Relax, James Bond fans. We know that some of you still haven't quite taken to rugged ol' Daniel Craig playing Ian Fleming's classic British spy, and even more of you got pretty miffed when it was revealed that Bond will tip back a Heineken in the latest movie, Skyfall. But, just because the most recent still images from Skyfall show Craig cruising through the streets of Istanbul in pursuit of a bad guy (Ola Rapace) on a Honda CRF250R motorcycle, that doesn't mean that 007 has given up on driving flashy cars — the Aston Martin DB5, which Bond drove into action in service of Her Majesty in five previous movies, will be back in Skyfall.

Whenever a new movie featuring an iconic fictional character goes into production, you can count on dedicated fans of the character to scrutinize every little detail. During production on Guy Ritchie's first Sherlock Holmes movie, the internet was rife with criticism about everything from the casting of American Robert Downey, Jr. as the English detective, right on down to the fact that Ritchie's Holmes sported a well-worn fedora instead of a deerstalker. And, when the first still image of Henry Cavill as Superman in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel was released, the fan community was up in arms over the fact that the new Superman costume ditched the red briefs.
Similarly, fans of Ian Fleming's classic British spy, James Bond, have kept director Sam Mendes' Skyfall under their microscope of scrutiny since the get-go. While most die-hard fans have finally stopped complaining that Daniel Craig is too "rugged" to play Bond, many of them had a major problem with Bond swapping his trademark martini for a Heineken in Skyfall, even if it was only "a sip of the brew...in one scene." In the latest featurette promoting Skyfall, costume designer Jany Temime admits that it was "quite difficult" to design Bond's suits because of the level of scrutiny that "such an iconic figure" generates. For those of you who are excited about Skyfall, but couldn't care less what Craig will be wearing as Bond, the featurette also offers some revealing behind-the-scenes footage of the movie being filmed. watch the featurette >> Posted 06.09.12 by BrentJS
After Monday's release of the first trailer for Skyfall, it looks unlikely that James Bond's 23rd outing will disappoint. Should you need extra assurance, new Bond Girl Berenice Marlohe promises Skyfall is one of the better Bond movies.
Fans really can expect all the key ingredients that have made this franchise last for 50 years — action, sense of humor, the characters are very high in colors. They have a fantastic cast and a fantastic director. They really can expect one of the better, if not the best, Bond ever. I really think they will really enjoy it.
