The first video blog from Skyfall director Sam Mendes has arrived. The twenty-third Bond movie starring Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, a villainous Javier Bardem, Albert Finney, Berenice Malohe, and Naomie Harris will be hitting theaters on November 9. In the meantime, Mendes fed fans a little tidbit to get everyone excited for the movie — showing a bit of behind-the-scenes action, discussing his admiration for the Bond series in general, and chatting about Craig's abilities as a believable hero. We wish it were longer, but we'll take what we can get — for now, anyway.
We've also just learned that Skyfall
will be released in IMAX theaters (domestically and abroad), getting the digitally remastered treatment. Mendes and cinematographer Roger Deakins did not
shoot the film with IMAX cameras, unlike Ghost Protocol
and The Dark Knight Rises
— two other heavy-hitters recently getting the IMAX makeover. It's still an opportunity for fans to see the action upscaled on the big screen. With Skyfall
marking the 50th anniversary of the Bond franchise, we can probably expect more goodies coming our way soon.
