Perhaps to follow up on Daniel Craig and the Queen’s big Olympic performance, Columbia Pictures has decided to release yet another trailer for the upcoming Bond movie Skyfall. But unlike the one that premiered after Craig and Queen Elizabeth II’s show, this one is way bigger and badder! Guess they thought the last one was underwhelming considering all it was competing with in London. I sure as hell thought so! And here it is, check it out!
I trust just about everyone caught the Opening Ceremonies on TV today. And even if you didn’t see it live, I imagine it’s only a matter of time before you catch the highlights on replay or Youtube. And I for one was seriously impressed!
Between the amazingly-choreographed reenactment of the industrial revolution (under the watchful eye of veteran actor Kenneth Branagh), the Parade of Nations, the psychedelic display to the tune of “Come Together”, and the torch lighting display, followed by Paul McCartney playing “Hey Jude”, and the final volleys of fireworks from the perfectly designed stadium, the whole thing was a visual and auditory delight!
Seriously, it was like a watching a Steampunk writer’s wet dream crossed with an acid trip and topped off by a hit of ecstasy (drugs are wrong)! But what I, and I imagine most people liked most, was the display put on by Daniel Craig (aka. James Bond) and Queen Elizabeth II herself. I won’t indulge in the details since there are those who may not have seen it yet, but suffice it to say, it was the perfect combination of funny and awesome! And that Queen Elizabeth II is a damn good sport, apparently. The director said he never had to tell her anything twice.
I would be happy to include the video here, but unforunately, the Olympic Committee is block usage of their media. But one thing they don’t own the rights to is the new Skyfall trailer that premiered during the ceremonies. Click on the window below to check it out!
Good news everybody! The people who brought you Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace have finally released a teaser trailer for the new Bond movie. I know this doesn’t quite fall into the category of science fiction, but I love the new Bond films. And if it’s of interest to me and to others, I’m sure to post about it!
Named Skyfall, the new movie is apparently going to involve revelations about M and an attack on MI6. In the course of it all, Bond’s loyalty will be tested, and he will have to make more sacrifices to save the only home he’s ever known and only job he’s ever been good at. Check out the trailer below.
