Title: Universal Exports’ James Bond News Archives – The Home of James Bond, 007 » James Bond 23 is Skyfall! Descriptive info: James Bond 23 is Skyfall!.. Naturally, the Internet is abuzz with stories about the film.. Here are a few of the best ones I ve come across:.. Reuters:.. As previously announced, Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes directs his first Bond adventure, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012 when Skyfall is released.. One of the few details Mendes revealed to more than 100 reporters from around the world at the film s London press launch were his cast and the locations of the blockbuster, which starts production on Monday.. Bond regulars Craig and Judi Dench, as his stern spymaster M, return to their roles, Spanish actor Javier Bardem plays the villain and French actress Berenice Marlohe and Britain s Naomie Harris are Bond girls.. All five were at the press briefing, where they were joined by Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson.. In addition, Mendes said the latest installment in one of cinema s longest and most successful film franchises will feature Ben Whishaw who will be playing a part I can t tell you about in scenes I can tell you nothing about.. And Albert Finney, who will also be playing a part I can tell you nothing about in scenes that I can t really tell you about and Ralph Fiennes, who, similarly, I can give you very little information about.. Asked whether he had not named all of the characters the leading actors would be playing because Bond fans might recognize them, the American Beauty director replied: They might do.. On the other hand they might not.. What producers have confirmed is that Skyfall will take Bond on another action-packed ... t had to sacrifice anything.. And of course the.. BBC.. covered the Skyfall James Bond 23 press conference.. The latest 007 adventure will star Daniel Craig for the third time..

The movie, which sees the return of Dame Judi Dench as spy boss M, will also star Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Javier Bardem as the villain of the piece..

Daniel Craig and French actress Berenice Marlohe on their roles in Skyfall.. Much speculation about the new film has focused on what Mendes will bring to the franchise, with some suggesting he will tone down or even abandon altogether the action sequences.. But the director denied that this was the case.. He told reporters in London that the fantastic script had all the elements of a classic Bond movie, including to quell any rumours lots of action.. When asked what fans could expect from the latest film, he added: The movie will reveal everything, and there s lots of surprises..

Title: Universal Exports’ James Bond News Archives – The Home of James Bond, 007 » A Visit to James Bond Island in Thailand Descriptive info: May.. 2009.. A Visit to James Bond Island in Thailand.. Me standing on the same beach as Roger Moore and Christopher Lee.. For a full gallery of my trip to James Bond Island, click here to visit the flickr gallery!.. Since I was a young boy, James Bond has had an important role in my life.. I still remember watching the TBS marathons with my father in the Poconos: especially.. The image of solar panels rising out of a rock in the middle of the water has been ingrained in my head for two decades and, when I learned that I could visit the actual island where the movie was filmed it became my number one priority in southern Thailand.. Tours to James Bond Island are more than plentiful in Krabi and Phuket, with fliers and signs posted on every tour office billboard and window.. Every day thousands of tourists who found.. Bangkok holiday deals.. board boats for different types of tours, but around lunch time they all make way for the island.. This was exactly what I did not want, as I wanted the place to myself to explore and find the actual filming locations.. After looking for a while I resolved to joining the masses: until we found Sim s Tours.. A view of the limestone crags of Phang Nga Bay.. Offering a twilight cruise around Phang Nga Bay (pronounced fang-nah), Sim s was the only company that actually arrived on the island just before sunset.. The bay itself is home to dozens of large limestone crags that jut out of the water in beautiful chaotic ways.. Some have small beaches, but many are just rock formations that pepper the landscape.. It s very outer-worldly and unlike anything I ve ever seen.. In reality, Sim s tour was like a 2 for 1 special, as the crags were must-sees for us as well.. The adventure began when we arrived at the pickup point five minutes late and learned that the bus had already left.. The tour agent suggested that we just go a different day, but we had run out of time in Phuket.. Repeated calls to the bus resulted in more frustrations, as they did not want to wait for us.. However, after some pleading they agreed, so we flagged down a motorcycle taxi and told him to step on it so we could catch up with the bus.. In true Bondian fashion we sped down the streets of Phuket, weaving in and out of traffic.. Man was that bus far away! When we got to the large hill dividing Phuket island our bike began to huff and puff its way up.. “Hurry up,” I thought, as the minutes ticked by.. When the bike finally made it over the hump and to the meeting point, the bus was nowhere in sight.. However, while dealing with being charged double what we thought we agreed to the Sim s bus showed up and we hopped on.. Our boat for visiting Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island.. Finally comfortable on the air conditioned coach bus, we listened in as our guide explained the tour to us, joking that his Thai name was too complicated and we should just ... place like a kid at Christmas.. The actual beach and island was extremely small you could walk from one end to the other in less than a minute.. Still, all the set locations were there: the triangular shaped entrance to Scaraamanga s fortress, the steps Nick Nack walked down with a bottle of champaign in the teaser sequence, the area of the beach where Bond s plane landed and most importantly, Nail Island: the crag that the solar panel came out of in the film.. Snap.. Snap snap snap.. It s all I did for most of the time on the island, though my serenity was quickly broken as two more boats arrived just after us and the place soon filled with dozens of other snapping tourists and Bond aficionados.. Me in front of the cave used for Scaramanga.. Also quite different from when the movie was filmed was the row of souvenir stands that stands in the middle of the beach and blocks a direct walk from one end of the island to the other.. Sadly, or happily I can t decided to this day the stands were all closed.. I guess a few dozen visitors are not enough to stay open when compared to the thousands they get at lunch.. I would have liked to have seen all the goodies they had to offer, but am glad I was not hounded to buy things my whole time on James Bond Island.. Finally, about 30 minutes after we arrived it was time to leave.. I was in no way ready: I could have stayed there soaking it all in for hours, but most other people on the boat do not share my special love for 007.. So it was back to sea, passing yet more crags with the sun setting in the distance.. We watched as the sky changed from blue to a mix of purple, pink, orange, navy and finally black.. All with the crags framing the scene and providing a stunning backdrop.. Nail Island, off of James Bond Island in Phang Nga Bay.. All in all things could not have worked out better.. We saw the crags and I got to go onto James Bond Island all by myself for a few seconds at least.. For anyone else who ever wanted to see the place and finds themselves in Phuket, I highly recommend Sim s Twilight Tours.. You can find information about it at any tourist office in town, the price is right and the experience unforgettable.. Some other new fun facts about The Man With the Golden Gun and Thailand that I learned from Sim.. The Man With the Golden Gun was the first movie to be used as a promotional tool for Thailand.. It was the first Western movie to show Thai boxing, floating markets, traditional Thai dance, longtail boats and the streets of Bangkok.. A mere couple of years after the movie s release, tourism had become the #3 industry in Thailand.. Ever year, more than 600,000 people visit James Bond Island..

Henchmen:.. Patrice, dozens of unnamed men.. Girls:.. S v rine, Eve.. Allies:.. M, Gareth Mallory, Kincade, Q, Tanner.. Bond's Conquest Count:.. 2 (maybe 3).. skyfall - the Universal Exports Review.. To celebrate 50 years of James Bond,.. rewards fans with a classic James Bond film that works as a gritty modern entry and a bridge between old and new.. It has all the ingredients that make 007 great: exotic locations, character development, beautiful women, a creepy villain, action, exposition, a slow pace, and a full.. MI6 staff.. For the casual Bond fan,.. is an outstanding action movie with a few plot holes.. For the hard-core 007 addicts amongst us, it succeeds on many other levels, borrowing the best elements from some of my favorite older movies while eliminating most of the fluff and camp.. Sam Mendes direction is among the most artistic in the series, reviving the old tradition of slow pans to introduce a new location and favoring plot advancement over non-stop action.. He also brilliantly uses silhouettes throughout the film, most noticeably in the Shanghai fight between Bond and Patrice and the fiery climax at.. Meanwhile,.. seems to have perfected his portrayal of 007 with a wink here, a cufflink adjustment there, and a pun or five for good measure.. He does a brilliant job of combining the traditional cockiness of Bond with a healthy dose of humility, humanity, and hurt.. Though Silva s actual scheme was a bit dull and convoluted, it didn t matter.. s real plot is found in the relationships between M, Bond, MI6, and how they all fit into our modern world.. The movie is filled with subtext, action, drama, some of the finest acting in the series, and by far my favorite ending.. Out of 007 possible stars, I give Skyfall a.. 006.. My Spoiler-Filled In-Depth Review.. |.. Do not continue reading if you haven t seen Skyfall yet.. v.. A Bridge Movie: aka, Oh, Grow Up, 007.. feels like a bridge movie between my father s Bond and a new era of 007.. By the time.. Die Another Day.. was released, the Bond movies had lost all touch with reality.. stripped that all away, leaving us with only Judi Dench's M and the Aston Martin DB5 as a common link to the past.. Bond was reborn and had no need for Q, Moneypenny, or exploding pens.. That arc continued in the frantic.. ; which, despite being a lackluster entry to the series, did advance Daniel Craig s young Bond.. Finally, by the end of.. , Bond has lost every connection to the previous 50 years and is ready to start over.. With Judi Dench and the DB5 gone, 007 is finally ready to walk past the hat rack, greet Miss Moneypenny, open the double-leather door, and have a stoic older man present him with a top secret folder.. Throw in a gunbarrel sequence for good measure and James Bond is officially back!.. This 007 Can Hurt Bleed.. When.. The World is Not Enough.. was released, Pierce Brosnan and company raved about Bond s humanity and vulnerability.. In reality, his fall and injury from the pretitle sequence only played a minor role in the plot and mostly gave 007 an excuse to seduce Dr.. Warmflash.. , Bond's injury and death play a major role in the film, as they force a weakened Bond to come to terms with his own physical limitations.. It s only through extreme hubris and sheer determination that 007 pulls himself together enough to face Silva.. Two wonderful examples of this are seeing Bond collapse after his MI6 physical and watching him dangle by one arm beneath a Shanghai elevator.. Staying Calm.. Right from the start,.. has an almost an eerie calmness.. Despite the tense atmosphere of a gunfight, motorcycle chase, and fisticuffs on top of a moving train, no one loses their calm.. Bond, Eve, and M all manage to keep their voices down: except when M orders Eve to take the bloody shot.. This calmness sets the pace for the rest of the film and prevents it from becoming overwhelming in its enormity.. Silva: Creepy, for Sure, But was he Memorable?.. Blofeld! LeChiffre.. Scaramanga.. Doctor No and Silva?.. Where does Silva fit into ... seem to have a little crush on Kincade.. How stupid were M and Kinkaid to use a flashlight outside Skyfall so Silva could easily find them.. I m Your New Quartermaster.. How do you reinvent the most beloved character in the entire history of James Bond? Apparently, by revisiting a few classic lines of dialogue, joking about an exploding pen, and having classy, fast-moving, and witty banter.. From their first encounter in the museum to their radio exchanges after Silva s escape, Daniel Craig and Ben Whishaw quickly recreate the quintessential relationship between the Bond and.. Desmond Llewelyn s Q.. It s also appropriate that the first gadget Bond receives from Q is the same one he received from Major Boothroyd 50 years ago: a.. Walther PPK.. Personally, the Q scenes have always been my favorite part of any Bond movie and I m thrilled to see where they go from here.. Q uestions Comments.. When exactly did Bond have the front machine guns and ejector seat installed in his.. Aston Martin.. ? Not complaining; just curious.. I was downright giddy when Bond said you must be joking and when Q asked Bond to bring back all the equipment in good shape.. Both of these are exact quotes from previous Bond films.. It s always great to see Q helping Bond in the field.. Reminds me of.. Licence to Kill.. What were you expecting? An exploding pen? We don t really do that anymore.. CLASSIC!.. Random Thoughts Things I liked:.. The title sequence is beautiful and also succeeds as a graphical representation of key plot elements.. When I first heard Adelle s theme song on the Internet, I didn t like it.. Then I saw it with the title sequence and I haven t been able to get it out of my head since.. (that s a good thing).. Some may argue that Bond was sweating during the emotional finale, but as.. taught us: it s ok for Bond to cry.. The silhouetted fight sequence between Bond and Patrice atop the Shanghai skyscraper may be my favorite fight in the series.. It really reminded me of Luke vs Vader in.. the Empire Strikes Back.. The pace of.. really gives it an old-school feeling.. I love the approaching vista of the Shanghai skyline and the eerie blue highway and road shots.. Bond s arrival at the floating casino in Macau may be my favorite approach in the whole series.. Showing the reflections of Skyfall and Silva s approaching army in the reflection of the Aston Martin s side view mirrors was a great directorial touch.. takes a the simple information-retrieval plotline.. From Russia With Love.. , the grit and poignancy of.. On Her Majesty s Secret Service.. , the villain s backstory aspect of.. , and adds in the best ending of franchise history.. The movie was essentially two movies in one, but both halves really worked for me (unlike.. The score was average with a few great moments.. Why didn t Thomas Newman use the Bond theme more?.. Because I was in Bangkok, I was able to see.. four days before the US release.. Bond jumping on top of a Komodo Dragon in Macau reminded me of Roger Moore jumping on a crocodile in.. Live and Let Die.. Gareth Mallory is the new M.. Bernard Lee and Robert Brown s M was named Miles Messervy.. Coincidence? I think not.. The punny guy in me loved all the one-liners!..

Daniel Kleinman s beautiful Skyfall title sequence can now be seen online.. What s really fascinating is that this version does not have the cast and crew s names on top of it..

The casino scene in Skyfall.. There will be a scene where tuxedo-clad Bond gets into an action at a floating casino in Macao.. The particular scene, which allegedly will see firework being lit as the boat Bond boards passes between two dragon heads, reportedly has a certain gravity and that director Sam Mendes has put a mysterious depth in it..
