"While it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I know I will watch it eventually because of the four legends in the cast." - Rebecca

"Adored both Bergen and Keaton (and Garcia!), liked Fonda and unfortunately, thought Steenburgen kind of drew the short straw here. Overall, had a ball!" - Andrew

It's "Action!" for Bond 23 SKYFALL

What a lovely image to wake up to this morning...

Don't you just love clapboards?

Skyfall (aka BOND 23) shooting has begun and here's photographic proof from the official James Bond twitter account @007. Does this mean that Daniel Craig is a liar liar pants on fire since he said at the press conference we live-blogged that they were going to be shooting that very day. Here we are four days later and we see "Day 1". 

...not that movie timelines ever make sense; scene 45 is first!



P.S. Roger Deakins, eh? Bonus points for Bond on that one, he'll look even better than usual. We interviewed Deakins for True Grit earlier this year... and we're still confused that he's never won an Oscar.

Wow, a three-way tie at this point?

BTW - who is the third actor from left in your banner, Nat?

Roger Deakins! Oh, that IS an extra sweet addition to the movie. Personally, I think Deakins was robbed at the Oscars. Yeah, Inception had great cinematography too, but it just wasn't as beautiful, y'know? Kinda like Ice Dancing competitions, Inception has all the tricky technical bits and special effects, but True Grit had all the masterly vistas and chirascuro goodness.

Janice -- that's dominic cooper. oh and about the poll. Yeah, Bond is one of those series. people fall in and out of love with it for 50 years now.

blinking -- agreed. lately it seems the Cinematography category is defaulting to DPs with huge technical complicationis (Inception/Avatar) rather than films that we think of when we think HOLY HELL... CINEMATOGRAPHY!!! and the latter is the kind that Deakins usually does ;)
