- Skyfall. Due for release November 9th. Directed by Sam Mendes, starring Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Helen McCrory, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw & Bérénice Marlohe. Plot Summary: Bond is back! Set to begin where Quantum of Solace ended, M’s past comes back to haunt her and Bond’s loyalty is tested. MI6 comes under attack, and of course Bond must track down and destroy the threat, regardless of the cost. After ‘Quantum of Solace we’re told that the by-now-expected bizarre film name has some emotional resonance to be revealed over the course of the film. Although delays caused by MGM filing for bankruptcy back in 2010 cast a cloud of the future of the film, the film was salvaged when MGM’s new management and EON Productions announced it would go ahead. Phew!
