  1. Sir Roger Moore praises ‘Skyfall’ and Daniel Craig


    Sir Roger Moore has predicted ‘Skyfall’ is going to be a huge hit following a private screening over the weekend, and has nothing but good things to say about the incumbent 007.

    Speaking at ‘An Evening With Roger Moore’ at the Rose Theatre in Kingston-Upon-Thames last night Sir Roger revealed, “I was invited on Saturday morning to a private screening of ‘Skyfall’.

    “Now, I have always said that the best Bond was obviously Sean, but I’m happy to say when ‘Skyfall’ is released on October 26, it is going to be the biggest [Bond film] there has ever been in the cinema, and he [Daniel Craig] will go down as the best Bond in history.

    “It is fantastic.”

  4. New Birmingham IMAX in time for ‘Skyfall’

    Birmingham is due to receive a brand new IMAX screen in time for the release of ‘Skyfall’, the first James Bond movie to be released in the format, which offers greater screen size and resolution.

    A year after the City lost its ten-year-old screen at Millenium Point, IMAX is making its way back. Cineworld Broad Street is set to benefit from a near £1 million investment in the technology.

    Manager Paul Millington said he was looking forward to having IMAX at his cinema.

    “Our IMAX screen will go into Screen 6, which is one of our biggest,” he said.

    “We will lose around 80 seats at the front, but everyone else will then be faced with this huge screen. Because it’s a false ceiling above the theatre, we can take the new screen really high inside the auditorium.

    We’re hoping to have it installed in time for the new Bond movie at the end of October.”

  5. Bardem talks ‘Skyfall’ experience

    Javier Bardem, the main villain ‘Silva’ in the 23rd Bond film ‘Skyfall’, has briefly spoken about his experience working on the film, as well as heaping praise on Director Sam Mendes and current James Bond star Daniel Craig.

    “It’s like a gift,” says Bardem to The National. “I’m 43 years old, so I remember going to see the Bond movies with my father and mother.”

    Bardem has been shooting the movie across London. “It’s also shooting in Istanbul and some other places I’m not allowed to say. It’s amazing to think we’re still shooting when we have to be opening in, what, six months.”

    According to Bardem, Mendes is doing a “great job”.

    What about Craig? Bardem’s response is certainly an endorsement. “He’s very, very funny, a great colleague, and so strong,” says Bardem. “He’s shooting non-stop and I’m thinking: ‘Oh my God, I don’t know how you do it’.

    He’s on top of all the stunts, and I go, ‘man, if I were you, I would be a mess’. In my opinion, he’s a great Bond.”

    Going on Bardem’s track record, we’re in store for a great villain as well come late this year.
