'Skyfall' will be released one day earlier on IMAX

Exciting news for who wishes that Daniel Craig’s face were ten stories tall: According to an announcement made on the official James Bond Twitter account, the upcoming Skyfall will be released one day early on IMAX screens. The film will now debut on the big big screen on Thursday, Nov. 8th, opening in regular-sized big screens on Nov. 9th. IMAX did not immediately respond to EW’s calls for confirmation, but why would the official James Bond Twitter account lie to us?

Dueling 'Skyfall' posters: Which side of the Atlantic gets Bond right?

skyfall-poster-2

It is unfair to stereotype the British people as a staid, uptight bunch. But their new poster for James Bond’s next film adventure, Skyfall, seemingly plays into that impression. Last week, Sony released their one-sheet for American audiences, and the image was one of action: Daniel Craig, dressed in an un-tied tuxedo, sliding on his back while taking aim with his pistol. The shot itself conjured up the Bond music in an instant.

Bond is much more formal in the new poster for the Brits. He’s buttoned up. He cradles his gun like it’s nothing more than a drink, and Daniel Craig looks at the camera with a trace of mistrust. It’s classic Bond, a Bond you can set your watch to. In the background, London’s skyline and the Union Jack establish that 007 is protecting home.

Lest you think I’m dissing the Brits and their Skyfall poster, I can easily reverse course and say that Americans required an action image because they don’t truly appreciate the essence of Bond. (See, I can insult both sides of the Atlantic!)

'Skyfall' video blog looks at opening sequence shoot

SKYFALL-POSTER

When Skyfall director Sam Mendes recently took a break from editing the 23rd official Bond movie to chat with EW the filmmaker admitted to being a tad tired. Or, as he put it himself, “I’m f—-ked.”

Watching the new Skyfall video blog, which tracks the filming of the film’s car-chase-and-shoot-‘em-up opening sequence in Turkey, it is easy to see why the helming a 007 adventure might tucker a man out.

Bond fans will find out if Mendes’ efforts were worthwhile when the film — which stars Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Albert Finney, and, of course, Daniel Craig, amongst others — opens here on November 9. Meanwhile, you can check out both the video blog and the Skyfall trailer below.

James Bond Day coming on October 5, with new Bond documentary and global events

skyfall-14

October 5 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No, the first big screen incarnation of the James Bond franchise. To celebrate, EON Productions, MGM, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Twenty Century Fox Home Entertainment have announced a series of events around the world, including an online auction organized by Christie’s in London, a film retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in new York, and an exhibition at the Toronto Film Festival. A press release also announces that all the Bond films will be released in a Blu-ray collection, although completists will need to purchase the off-brand Bond films Never Say Never Again and 1967’s Casino Royale from a back-alley Blu-ray dealer.

'Skyfall' video blog: Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes talk London

The London love just keeps rolling in.

Fresh off a two-week stint showing a record TV audience all that it had to offer while playing host to the Olympics, “The Big Smoke” (No, I did not know that was a nickname for London as of five minutes ago) turns its attention to yet another major spectacle: the upcoming release of the newest Bond film, Skyfall.

The Skyfall camp has been tight lipped as far as plot details for much of the production period, with one of the only certainties in the cloud of mystery being that London will be welcoming home its favorite secret-agent son for the 23rd installment of the franchise.

Check out a behind-the-scenes clip below to watch director Sam Mendes and star Daniel Craig — both native sons themselves — talking rather candidly about some of the challenges that shooting in London presented, as well as their general excitement in bringing Bond back to his roots.

'Skyfall': 'Mommy was very bad' and other curious clues in the new James Bond trailer

From the director of American Beauty and Revolutionary Road… James Bond in… Skyfall!!

Sam Mendes may have been an unorthodox choice to direct the 23rd official James Bond film — and the first in four years — but the new trailer demonstrates a great appreciation for 007’s cinematic canon and the evolving action genre in the (just) post-Bourne, post-Dark Knight era. There are nods to WikiLeaks, echoes of London’s 7/7 subway explosions, and a thick cloud of suspicion about even the most trusted institutions. The house has crumbled and Bond needs to become a new man to rebuild it.

Below are a few moments from the new trailer that made me grin, happy that Bond’s Olympic helicopter leap with the Queen won’t be the year’s most awesome 007 event. READ FULL STORY

'Skyfall' trailer: Let the games begin?

skyfall-daniel-craig.jpg

“Double-0 seven reporting for duty.”

So says our favorite British action hero after he’s returned from the dead. The new trailer for Skyfall, the latest installment of the Bond franchise starring Daniel Craig, finally lets us in on the goods. There’s M typing up an obituary for Bond after a mission gone wrong in Turkey. “What do you say about a man like that,” she wonders. Bond was shot off the top of a speeding train by a sniper, falling lifelessly off a bridge and into the water Jason Bourne-like.

“Where the hell have you been?” M asks, after Bond makes his way back to the land of the living.

“Enjoying death.”

Watch two versions of the trailer below, which both introduce Bond’s new [Q]uartermaster, two potentially dangerous ladies, and a blond baddie played by Javier Bardem. READ FULL STORY

'Skyfall' TV spot: Don't muss James Bond's suit

Along with James Bond’s buzzy appearance with Queen Elizabeth II during the Olympic Opening Ceremonies on Friday, the British secret agent also debuted the newest TV spot for his upcoming feature film Skyfall. While it’s mostly made up of shots from the first trailer, the ad ends with a new killer moment of vintage Bond-ian style. Check it out below:  READ FULL STORY

'Skyfall' first look: Ben Whishaw is the new Q! -- EXCLUSIVE

The first two James Bond films starring Daniel Craig famously took things back to basics — no cartoonishly eccentric über-villain, no wildly over-the-top secret lair, and no over-elaborate sci-fi gadgetry. Most of the changes were quite welcome, but that last one also meant the loss of one of the franchise’s most beloved characters: Q, the master of spy technology at MI6 and a sharp comic foil for Agent 007.

EW is happy to confirm that Q will return in the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, as played by actor Ben Whishaw (Bright StarI’m Not TherePerfume). Q will aid Bond’s mission to help save MI6 after it comes under attack thanks to a looming threat in M’s (Judi Dench) past. Check out this exclusive first look at Whishaw as the character below:  READ FULL STORY

Ralph Fiennes Q&A: Directing Shakespeare and taking orders from Bond

What the Dickens is going on with Ralph Fiennes? Not only is he playing Magwitch in Mike Newell’s upcoming adaptation of Great Expectations, but he’s also starring in and directing The Invisible Woman, a movie about the great author’s secret mistress. EW caught up with Fiennes to ask him not only about Dickens, but also two other great English writers: Shakespeare (Fiennes’ adaptation of Coriolanus is out on DVD this week) and Fleming (he’s got a top secret part in Skyfall, the new James Bond film).

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Coriolanus was your first attempt at directing a movie. Why choose Shakespeare? And why that particular play? For your first time, why not pick something easy — maybe Vacation of the Titans?
RALPH FIENNES: Its challenging nature is what I love about it. I performed it onstage years ago and have been thinking about it as a film ever since. Shakespeare is challenging for a lot of people but I find it thrilling. The language is like music. READ FULL STORY
