    China had the best opening ceremony plain and simple. I will never forget those drums and just the breathtaking dragon dances and dancers. It was a tough act to follow no offence Brits – but this thing was way too ‘celebrity’ oriented. I didn’t expect much anyway but congrats to you guys.

  • sarah

    Seriously that was f—–g FANTASTIC. By far the BEST Olympic Openning.

  • Asha

    I think the opening ceremony is great so far.

  • Opening Ceremonies Grade= D-

    way too literal and focused

    The Daniel Craig and Queen part was a bit cheesy. Nobody thought for a moment that was the Queen, and yeah I know it was tongue in cheek.
    But enjoying most of the show. Don’t like all the political talk.. NBC STFU and just give us the fluff..

  • deadpool

    007, Harry Potter, Mr. Bean and Mary Poppins for THE OLYMPIC CEREMONY … EMBARRASSING. Oh and they had a Tony Stark Expo, smoke stacks and other things that had nothing to do with the culture.

    I just cracked up through the whole thing. I can’t wait for Tokyo 2020 now because I know for a fact that Japan – has a brilliant culture.

  • Ellgy

    I loved it.

  • trip

    Just Jared is a joke. All he does is try to copy other legit websites and post exclusives of people no one cares about. Keep up the bad work homo

  • Launa

    The queen and Daniel Craig was the best part! And lovely corgies!

  • Kat

    Still can’t believe that the Queen actually did that with Daniel! She’s cool!

  • Carrie

    the Churchill statue was waving! LOL

  • tw

    Love Dan and Q

  • lylian

    Great video. Enjoyed this unique opening ceremony. Different, light hearted, humorous, human.

  • Grace

    Daniel is just soooooooo sexy…

  • Drea

    Daniel was hot. Ceremony was a snoozefest. Nothing can top Beijing’s ceremony in my opinion. I cried and had chills then!!

  • Jones

    Ahhhhhhhhh, I love his swag while he walks! Sexy bomb!

  • Monica

    The Queen and Daniel have a great sense of humor! I didn’t expect the Queen parachuted into the ceremony.

  • Mike

    BTW, Queen Elizabeth very tired and sleepy, and her eyes were half shut.
    Maybe that’s her regular bedtime!

  • Jen

    …totally agree!! If one was to look up the definition of epic in Webster’s, there would be a picture of The Queen and James Bond from tonight next to it!! LOL

  • Karen

    I broke into laughter when Queen Elizabeth jumped off a helicopter with Daniel. What was going on?!

  • Amanda

    Gotta love the Daniel escorting of the Queen. He looks smooth and ****ing HOT!

  • Sky Fall

    Best Ads Ever for his new movie, Skyfall!!

  • BB

    Queen Elizabeth is the best Bond Girl ever. Awesome show, great job, Daniel!

  • Kris

    Oh hello Swagger! Biggest crush on Daniel! why are you so hot?

  • Säde

    My family all giggled at Daniel’s facial expression when the Churchill statue was waving to him!!! I want to hug him and squeeze him<3

  • Andamentothat

    Daniel and her majesty! The best bonds !

  • African Girl

    Not offense to the Brits but that was the most boringestestest opening ceremony ever!
    It was such a mess! People flying in from all directions (I know it’s Mary poppins but that crap was just not it), boy meets girl and they dance their way through years (What in the world??!). . .Gah! just awful!!!
    James Bond and the Queen were the highlight of that cringe inducing show.

  • Tom

    The queen and Daniel make a cute couple. I can see sexual tension would happen between them without any effort at all. lol

  • Tina

    A bit lacking entertainment. Best part was Daniel Craig. He never disappoint me as usual. :)

  • Honeyee

    OMG! Daniel was pushing the Queen out of helicopter. She is your boss, right? I hope he’s safe I hope he’s alright!!!!!!

  • mary

    i think that Daniel Craig and the Queen were the best part of the opening ceremonies. Although I did have a lot of fun talking to other people in the stands who had come from different Countries. The couple sitting behind me came from Armenia. And, I was surprised to see Muhammad Ali in London.

  • Joel

    British! Soooo British! James Bond! The Queen! Never on time!!!!!!

  • Raffine

    Daniel is such a boss. Exceedingly or unbelievably hawt!

  • mimi

    I missed it, so Jaread, thanks for the clip! Hilarious! I must repeat many times!

  • mimi

    Nooooooooooo! Just taken down by IOC!! Damn it!

  • to 33

    @Honeyee: Duke of Edinburgh may have killed Bond by jealousy. XD

  • Marie

    Rowan Atkinson, Johnny English, wanted to have great opportunities to perform with Daniel, I wonder. Thank god, Danny Boyle refused!

  • solecito

    One of the worst, most boring opening ceremonies I’ve ever seen. I had high hopes, but the whole thing was a pointless mess. Even Paul McCartney wasn’t that good. A big disappointment. China set the bar way too high in 2008.

  • Zibbe

    The link doesn’t work. Where is a ’working’ link? Thanks.

  • Sara

    surprised she was NOT the Queen looksalike. THAT’S THE REAL QUEEN! And Daniel is hot, the best James Bond ever, IMO. Oh, I was moved by corgis’s graceful performance, too! LOL

  • Rie

    How lucky setting video recording the live show! In television broadcasting, the Queen and Daniel’s parts were deleted for protecting the right. Well, Daniel and the Queen stole the show!
    Don’t expect too much of Tokyo Olympic! If you check our public opinion poll, you will know that most Japanese do not want it.

  • Gerry

    Daniel was incredible hot/beautiful in a tux! Nuff said.

  • Skyfall TV Spot


  • ack

    the queen acting like a boss!b7tch with daniel craig was golden!! (random question but why are all of you calling him ‘daniel’ as if you know him? lollll.. i love superSUPER fans 0_o)

  • Lisa

    I’m so envious of the British. they have the most extraordinarily courageous Queen!!!!!!!!

  • Lisa

    @ack: I have no idea why you ask it. Because we almost call an actor/actress by first name whether we are his/her fan, or not.

  • ack

    @Lisa: because its weird. you don’t know them =/
