Unfortunately I missed the opening ceremony at The London Olympics last night there was many talking points (mostly positive) but the big talking point especially among film fans was the James Bond clip. Britain’s iconic spy 007 certainly made his mark on the games and at work today(which happens to be a cinema)”did you see the Bond clip?”. If your like me missed the boat don’t despair that clip from the games is below also along with the first Skyfall tv spot.
Starting with the Olympic clip we meet Bond making his way to Buckingham Palace toescort The Queen to the games opening ceremony, then we cut to a unionjack helicopter and what came next was unexpected. With the Helicopter now over the Olympic stadium doors opened we assume Bond will jump which he did but her Majesty herself followed him, making an entrance that even the best action stars would be proud off! Now for TV Spot which was shown during the American coverage on NBC Channel and does show plenty of new footage with a few bits we’ve seen before, what this spot does do is show off the fantastic cinematography on offer. Mendes promised epic scale and it looks like he’s delivering, though his lips are still sealed on the actual plot but we’re getting closer to release date and hopefully soon we’ll know a little more on what to expect.
Skyfall will arrive in UK&Ireland October 26th (USA November 9th) starring Daniel Craig Judi Dench , Javier Badrem, Ralph Feinnes ,Berenice Marlohe, Albert Finney , Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris.
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.
