On November 9, the latest 007 film, Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig as the lead role will be released.
Skyfall is the third 007 film to star Craig and follow the linear story that began with Casino Royale and continued with Quantum of Solace.
The story line is as follows; after an operation in Istanbul ends in disaster, James Bond (Craig) is missing and presumed dead and the identities of every active MI6 undercover agent are leaked onto the internet; as a result, M (played by Judi Dench) becomes the subject of a government review over her handling of the situation. When the service itself is attacked, Bond’s sudden reappearance gives M the pretext she needs to seek out Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem), a dangerous villain claiming a personal connection to both of them – but as he follows a trail from London to the South China Sea, Bond soon finds his loyalty to M challenged over secrets from her past.
The first 007 film to ever be released was Dr. No starring Sean Connery in 1962 which would launched 22 sequels and a string of “secret agent” films in the following decade.
The classic opening of the Bond films seen through the barrel of a gun began with Dr. No and has been used ever since.
Over the past five decades six actors have portrayed Bond on screen; Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Craig.
On a budget of $150 million, Skyfall looks to make with a promising cast and story.
