Even though no one gave a flying Scaramanga about our Bond themed Friday Fight Club, the rest of the world still digs the top man at MI6, and after 50 years of foiling plots and killing henchmen in creatively violent ways, Bond is is still looking pretty spry so far.
Skyfall is almost upon us, and the marketing blitz is in full swing, with this whole new bonanza of material that has surfaced, from Adele pulling a Shirley Bassey for the latest intro theme. to new videoblogs highlighting the locations and production involved in crafting the latest 007 tale.
Here’s the latest trailer, courtesy of Slashfilm, with plenty much the same footage, but with more Adele, cigarettes and not giving a damn what you think about her. It’s kind of awesome, that way.
Here’s James Bond,on a construction vehicle, on a train! Which is also coincidentally the name of the new rap song that I’m working on, which uses Q Division technology to lure in hipsters and annihilate them with subliminal brain-lasers.
And finally, a pair of tribute videos, one unofficial and one with the official stamp from Her Majesty. Guess which one is which, or enjoy these infographics from Cristina Vanko and H&R Block instead.
Skyfall is out locally on 30 November, and stars Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory and Ola Rapace, with Sam Mendes directing.
