Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.  To say the people around here in the City of Films are excited for this would be an understatement; early reviews are even calling it the best Bond movie ever!

Movie goers will even be given this poster, lucky people.  A new trailer has also been released for Skyfall with little new footage but who cares?  It’s awesome to look at, and you can do so below.

Skyfall opens internationally on October 26th, in North American IMAX theaters on November 8th, and in regular theaters on November 9th.

SKYFALL News: Runtime, Daniel Craig for Two More Films, and a Behind-the-Scenes Video

Skyfall-International

Well it seems Bond is back in a big way; not only is the longest running franchise celebrating 50 years but the latest installment, Skyfall, is set to go with a runtime of 145 minutes.  That would be a bit longer than Casino Royal and a hefty 40 minutes longer than Quantum of Solace.

There is also news that Daniel Craig will return for the next two James Bond films which leaves him slightly behind Sean Connery (6) and Roger Moore (7).  Sony Pictures will return to co-finance Bond 24 and 25, so let’s hope there isn’t another off again on again mess.

Skyfall also stars Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe and Ola Rapace.  The movie opens October 26th in the UK and November 9th in North America.

Here is a nice behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the opening of Skyfall with commentary from Mendes, Craig and more.

Friday, September 7th, 2012

Cloud-AtlasHere is a new trailer for Cloud Atlas, and it’s another great one (see the extended one here).  The film is directed by Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix) and Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) and based on David Mitchell’s novel.  The all start cast take on multiple roles during different time periods and at different locations – so thank God Susan Sarandon is narrating this trailer or we would all be lost.

The film stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, Xun Zhou, Keith David, and David Gyasi.  Cloud Atlas opens on October 26th.

Two New Trailers for James Bond’s SKYFALL

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

daniel-craig

Two new trailers for Skyfall?  Yes please.  Bond is back people, and the folks behind Skyfall want to make sure we all know it.  All the Bond elements are here: big sets, gun play, sex, and action.  The one aspect I didn’t quite care for in most of the Bond movies is the not so hard to kill villain.  Well, Javier Bardem looks terrifying here and could very well give Bond a fair fight.

The film stars Daniel Craig, Bérénice Marlohe, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCroy, Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes, and Javier Bardem.

Skyfall opens November 9th.

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) 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.

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Well that didn’t take long.  We showed you the first images from the movie and now we have a trailer, it’s unofficially Cloud Atlas day gang!

It’s a six-minute international trailer for Cloud Atlas, a movie based on David Mitchell‘s novel of the same name.  It tracks the lives of multiple characters across multiple eras and how they come together in one way or another.  I knew the movie was going to be huge in terms of scale and visuals, but wow, this looks like someones messed up dream come to life.  They went for it alright, and it’s going to pay off beautifully by the looks of things.

Cloud Atlas explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future.

First Look at the Wachowski’s CLOUD ATLAS

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

cloud-atlas-logo

Entertainment Weekly got their hands the first photos from Andy and Lana Wachowski (Matrix trilogy) and Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) co-wrote and co-directed adaptation of David Mitchell’s 2004 novel Cloud Atlas (out in theaters Oct. 26)

I’m very excited for this movie, the Wachowski’s gave us the amazing Matrix trilogy along with a very underrated gem called Speed Racer (seriously, it’s awesome).  It will be interesting to see Tom Hanks in this kind of role, from the images below he looks to be fitting in quite well in this massive movie.

The film also stars Hugh Grant, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, Susan Sarandon, Jim Broadbent, Bae Doona and James D’Arcy, each cast member plays multiple roles.

A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan’s California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified “dinery server” on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation — the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other’s echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.

In his captivating third novel, David Mitchell erases the boundaries of language, genre and time to offer a meditation on humanity’s dangerous will to power, and where it may lead us.
