skyfall007

Box-office smash, SKYFALL, will be available to own in high-definition Blu-ray and on DVD on 18 February, it was announced today by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Directed by Oscar® winner Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, SKYFALL’s high definition home entertainment release follows the phenomenal theatrical success of the 23rd installment of the longest-running franchise in film history.  Taking in more than $1 billion (USD), the British secret-service agent dominated the worldwide box-office and has become the highest grossing film ever in the United Kingdom – Bond’s home country.

Accolades continued with the recent announcement of eight BAFTA [British Academy of Film and Television Arts] nominations including Outstanding British Film; Supporting Actor, Javier Bardem; and Supporting Actress, Judi Dench.  Adele’s “Skyfall” was recognized with a Golden Globe® award and an Academy Award® nomination for Original Song, one of the film’s five Oscar nominations.

The theatrical debut of SKYFALL capped a year-long celebration of James Bond’s golden anniversary.  Honoring 50 years since 007 first appeared on-screen, the global campaign was highlighted with the release of BOND 50, a collectible box-set featuring all 22 James Bond films on Blu-ray Disc for the first time in one complete offering. The box-set includes a placeholder for SKYFALL so consumers can complete their 50th anniversary collection.

In SKYFALL Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past returns to haunt her.  With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond.  007 takes to the shadows – aided only by field agent, Eve (Naomie Harris) – following a trail to the mysterious Silva (Javier Bardem), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.

With the Blu-ray, go behind-the-scenes of Bond’s latest mission with more than three hours of in-depth special features.  Shooting Bondbrings adrenaline-hungry fans closer to the heart-stopping action and 007’s world of worthy villains, glamorous women, exotic locations and the coolest gadgets.
