'Skyfall': Daniel Craig's New Bond Film!

Daniel Craig suits up for a photo call for Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond movie, at Massimo’s Restaurant on Thursday (November 3) in London, England.

Joining the 43-year-old actor were co-stars Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, and Berenice Marlohe (the French actress was named the next Bond Girl).

While Sam Mendes, who’s directing the film, kept quiet about much of what to expect from the film, he did tell journalists to expect “a lot of action” in Skyfall.

The film will shoot in Whitehall, London, Pinewood Studios, China, Istanbul, Turkey, and Scotland, Variety reports.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the title, Skyfall?

  • Fio

    I’m surprised that all the information has leaked out. The title, Bond Girl, the villain, the other casts – Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw. They have a confidential duty, huh?

  • mel

    Omg the girl in the red is stunning!! I’m assuming that’s Berenice Marlohe? … forget stick thin runway models, I want a body like THAT!!

  • Elle

    I think Berenice Marlohe is NOT Bond’s love interest. She is Javier Bardem’s GF.

    Naomi is my favorite actress. I wish her role is ”big”.

    ‘Skyfall’ Confirmed As Title Of New Bond Movie; Budget Around $230M; Sam Mendes Says He’s Open To Follow-up
    http://www.deadline.com/2011/11/%E2%80%98skyfall%E2%80%99-confirmed-as-title-of-new-bond-movie-budget-around-230m-sam-mendes-says-he%E2%80%99s-open-to-follow-up/
    Shooting on the latest James Bond movie starts Monday, Daniel Craig revealed at this morning’s press conference for Skyfall, the 23rd 007 movie. Producer Michael G Wilson scotched UK tabloid rumors that the budget for the latest Bond film has been slashed by $100 million. “We’re in the same budget range as the last film. We haven’t had to change anything in the script. In fact, we keep adding things — everything is going to be just as it was,” he said. Director Sam Mendes also denied he was making a downbeat Bond with fewer action sequences. He would be directing action sequences himself. “There will be plenty of surprises,” Mendes promised. “The action needs to be balanced with the drama.” Mendes said he was open to directing another Bond installment, “if I still feel that it’s as much fun in six months’ time, then the answer is yes.”

    The filmmakers were giving little away at this morning’s presser: In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her; MI6 comes under attack, and Bond must track down and destroy the threat. While confirming Deadline’s scoop that Javier Bardem would play the villain, Mendes was coy as to whether Bardem would be playing Blofeld, as screenwriter John Logan has hinted. What is known is that Skyfall will be mostly shot around Whitehall, London (the government district), Scotland, Istanbul and China. Eon Productions used this morning’s event to unveil latest Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe, playing a character named Severine. Other cast members confirmed include Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris, playing a secret agent named Eve. Sony will release Skyfall in North America on November 9 2012, following its UK/Ireland premiere on October 26.

    Mendes said he wanted to do Bond because he’d been a fan since going to see Live And Let Die in the cinema. “Plus I thought that Daniel playing Bond opened up all sorts of fantastic opportunities for the character,” he said. Broccoli would not comment on speculation that Brit pop star Adele will sing the theme song: “We’ve been considering various people for the theme tune,” she said. Mendes added that Skyfall was not a continuation of the previous two Bond outings, which had a running storyline. Producer Barbara Broccoli also revealed that Craig would be playing Bond for at least one more time. Personally, I can’t help but feel Skyfall is a lame title for a James Bond movie; even Everything Or Nothing, a James Bond video game title, would be better.

    to Fio

    thanks for the article. Skyfall will have the same budget as QOS; 230 million and Sam will be directing the action scenes himself. but one thing; i thought Naomi Harris had the role of Miss Moneypenny. a friend just sent me a French film with Bernice in it it. she’s was good. I hope that she is Bond’s main love interest. Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem; YES!!! as i said before, all we have to do is wait for Gina to arrive. By the way, my friend had twins; a boy and a girl.

  • Glow

    @Tom:

    I agree Naomie Harris is a very good actress and she’s gorgeous. She was great in Ninja Assassin and Pirates of the Carribean and she’ll be great in this latest James Bond film. She reportedly signed on to play the Money Penny character.

  • Jane

    Harris looks amazing in that Victoria Beckham dress, the other actress looks frumpy and dated in comparison!

  • JBFan

    Naomie Harris will NOT play Moneypenny. Moneypenny’s first name is Jane and not Eve.
    And Sam Mendes said that he’s got a great second unit director who will direct the acting sequences. So he’s not doing that himself, he will have the last word, though.

  • Fio

    to 23
    Naomi doesn’t play Moneypenny. She was unveiled in the role of a field agent named Eve.

    Oops, sorry. I didn’t update the page on this thread.

  • D C”S future

    There has been a lot of speculation over the last year on whether or not Daniel Craig will return as James Bond in the future. The rumor is they want to go with a younger James Bond; a guy in his early 30′s that just left the military. The latest James Bond book “Carte Blanche” has James Bond about 30 years old. The Studio (MGM) wants to capitalize on the Twilight light audience; they can’t do that with a guy in his 40′s.
    So this maybe his last Bond film.

  • LeviKlein

    Am VERY excited about this! Quantum of Solace felt like a let down, but Casino Royale still is my all-time favorite. This one sounds so promising: great cast, good director, hopefully a better script than Quantum…

  • stabler

    FUG. Can’t stand Craig’s pinched up puss.

  • Fan

    I’m just happy he’s going to stay for some more movies.

  • Mendel

    I love it! This film sounds so exciting. And Javier Bardem will make a rather attractive villain… *grin*

    to Fio

    “I’m surprised that all the information has leaked out.”

    They only want to tease us…there is plenty they are not telling…

    “Woohoo! Manly men!”

    Yes, Yes, YES!!!

    “AvyyBabyy: #BOND23 press conference “Will we see shirts off from Javier & Daniel?” Barbara Broccolli “DAMN RIGHT.” Barbara Broccoli, my new hero!”

    Yes, mine too!!! Simply brilliant! Guinness will fall off her chair ;)

    “In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her; MI6 comes under attack, and Bond must track down and destroy the threat.”

    I find this totally intriguing, since this involves M’s past! Excellent – really like this storyline!

    But what a shame Naomi Harris is not playing Moneypenny. I wonder who is?

    provide the link to the site or sites that they that this is Daniel’s last film. also provide the link to the site or sites where it says that they want a much younger Bond to capitalize on the Twilight phenom.

    Craig looks old and washed out. Going bald on the top and tired looking. Middled aged man.

    ”D C”S future” is a wannabe. I am convinced that she/he will claim, ” I work in film industry” or ”My friend works in film industry”. Lol.

    Ralph Fiennes talks about ‘SkyFall’ for the first time
    Skyfall (Bond 23) – 04-11-11

    Ralph Fiennes could not attend the “SkyFall” (Bond 23) press conference yesterday due to prior work commitments publicizing his new movie “Coriolanus” (which he also directed), but IFC had the fortuitous timing of interviewing the actor shortly after his Bond role was confirmed.

    “If you’re a Bond fan,” Fiennes said, “then you’ll be happy.”

    “I can tell you that John Logan has written a fantastic screenplay and [director] Sam Mendes is a class act. They’re doing something quite special I think. I think they’re going to be great for Bond.”

    Fiennes, who said he prefers the darkness of the books over the films, and whose first cinematic 007 experience was “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”, was asked whether his character would be joining in with the action sequences. “I can’t answer that question,” he said. “I don’t get laid, that’s for sure.”

  • no way

    everyone knows someone always made up “rumors”. the german mag was fake.

  • Cupcakes

    @D C”S future: Yes, Craig is a guy in his 40s who looks like he’s in his 50s.

  • Elise

    Sorry DC’s future, Barbara Said in the press conference that Daniel will definetely be back for a couple more bond movies, unless your roll “in the film industry” goes above the producer your info is false.

  • to no way

    I wouldn’t say the German mag was fake, it was just as it always is….taking words out of contect.
    He often answered when asked how many Bond we will make, that he takes one after another and nobody knows what will happe next day….so they just interpreted it in a way to get the headline.

    It’s hilarious how first all German mags and site and then after a few days even the english ones jumped upon the bandwagon, as if such an announcment woul be made in an interview with a minor German TV magazine.

    Daniel Craig – Daniel Craig Wants Double Bond Bed
    http://www.contactmusic.com/news/daniel-craig-wants-double-bond-bed_1255618
    (QUOTE)
    Daniel Craig has asked for a double bed in his trailer on the set of the ‘Skyfall’, so his wife Rachel Weisz can stay over on set.
    Daniel Craig has asked for a double bed in his trailer on the set of the new James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’.
    The 007 actor wants enough room for his new wife Rachel Weisz – whom he married in June – to be able to stay with him on set, so he can concentrate his full attention getting into character as the iconic spy, rather than having to jet off to see her.
    A source told The Sun newspaper: “He asked for the trailer so it could be effectively a second home and his wife can visit him during filming.
    “It means he can spend more time on set and put everything into the next Bond, as he always does.”
    Alongside the double bed, Daniel’s list of requirements also includes a coffee machine with South American beans, two bodyguards, a masseuse, a trainer and access to a gym.
    The 43-year-old star is said to be on a strict exercise regime to get back to his best shape for his third outing as the screen spy, as well as being told to grow a full beard, sparking speculation ‘Skyfall’ will have a terrorist based plotline.
    The source added: “He’s getting in amazing shape. Daniel doing the full beard and is in preparations for a massive car chase scene.”

    so anyone one know who is going to be the “main” Bond girl; Bernice or Naomie.

  • bissgirl

    I love Daniel Craig, he is the best Bond ever, and he is so handsome. Cant wait for Skyfall

  • to all

    Don’t freak out over this, read the post again, carefully this TIME!
    I said it was speculation, a rumor, not fact! And if you go back a few months there were a lot of rumors floating around. I for one like Daniel Craig as James bond, but Hollywood is run by accountants. They would have James Bond fighting werewolves and vampires if they thought people would go and see it. That was my point; it is not about who does the best work but who will sell the most tickets at the box office. Look at what they are putting out at the theaters, they want to capture that twilight and Harry Potter group of young people who go to the movies. So I can see them going with a younger Actor
    (next film)and yes the James Bond Book (Carte Blanche)that is out now has James Bond as an Afghanistan war vet who is about 30 years old ,now that is not a rumor but fact!!

    Jeffery Deaver
    Carte Blanche (2011)
    “The face of war is changing. The other side doesn’t play by the rules much anymore. There’s thinking, in some circles, that we need to play by a different set of rules too…”

    James Bond, in his early thirties and already a veteran of the Afghan War, has been recruited to a new organization. Conceived in the post-9/11 world, it operates independent of MI5, MI6 and the Ministry of Defense, its very existence deniable. Its aim: To protect the Realm, by any means necessary.

    A Night Action alert calls James Bond away from dinner with a beautiful woman. Headquarters has decrypted an electronic whisper about an attack scheduled for later in the week: Casualties estimated in the thousands, British interests adversely affected.

    And Agent 007 has been given carte blanche.

  • Daniel is Hot

    So Daniel wants a double bed in his trailer so he can put all his attention into the character of Bond. I don’t think so. The real reason is that he wants to spend all this attention to Rachel. Lucky gal. He is going to be looking sooo good in that film. Can’t wait. No G, I am not his tailor any more – Rachel has that job now. Darm!
