Daniel Craig is back with his third stint as the legendary fictitious spy James Bond in 'Skyfall'. This time, 007 is troubled as his loyalty to M is tested and MI6 is under threat from a new menace.
The film is the 23rd official Bond movie and will celebrate 50 years of the action-packed spy drama. Little has been revealed in regards to the plot or, indeed, the mysterious ambiguity of the film title. After Shortlist magazine made an attempt to wheedle classified information about the movie out of Craig, he joked, 'M is a stripper in Morocco!' The 'Casino Royale' and 'Quantum of Solace' star also told them about his experiences in making the highly anticipated film. 'I get a kick out of doing the films, but the best part is the excitement in working with such an incredible cast and crew. I am also aware that the chance to make such movies is a rarity".
Cast alongside Craig are Ralph Fiennes ('Harry Potter', 'The Duchess') as government agent Mallory and Judi Dench ('As Time Goes By', 'Notes on a Scandal') as M - this will be Dench's seventh consecutive film in this role. The 'Skyfall' villain, Raoul Silva, will be played by Javier Bardem ('No Country for Old Men') and the glamorous 'Bond girl' Severine is to be played by French actress Berenice Marlohe who recently revealed to the London Evening Standard that she thought Daniel Craig was 'very boring' until she met him and decided that she actually found him 'sexy'. The film is directed by Academy Award winning Sam Mendes and will be released to UK cinemas audiences from October 26th 2012.
