A New SKYFALL Videoblogembedomatic Discusses The Film's Design!!



Merrick here...

A new SKYFALL videoblog was issued Friday...perhaps not the best day to release such a thing given the  Geekverse's preoccupation with AVENGERS' North American release.  But here it is all the same, for your consideration, now.  

This installment features insight from Production Designer Dennis Gassner, who teases the complexity of realizing a production of this scale.  Gassner's previous credits include FIELD OF DREAMS, THE HUDSUCKER PROXY, THE TRUMAN SHOW, and QUANTUM OF SOLACE.  

LOVE that shot at 1:47...

SKYFALL arrives in theaters this November.

    No interest in Bond until they dump Craig

    I really miss Brosnan.

    by Mugato5150

    And you can go on about how Craig's Bond is closest to the novels and I admit that the post-GoldenEye Brosnan Bond movies didn't have the best scripts but at least Brosnan "got it".

    Don't get the Daniel Craig hate.

    by ShogunMaster

    He brings real depth to the character and I love how they are bringing a more realistic Bond back to the fray. Sort of like Bond in From Russia with Love where the villain didn't have plans to blow up/take over the world, no space battles, no undersea cities, no crazy gadgets, no 'hide by standing out in the crowd' covert ops. And he actually bleeds after a fight. Craig is the best thing to happen to Bond since Connery.

    Not really a fan of Craig, either

    by howlingmudd

    The one problem I have with Craig is that he always comes across as a Gen-Xer more interested in being considered edgy and aloof than someone who plays James Bond. Previous actors like Dalton and Brosnan treated the role with a great deal of respect- as if they were members of a very exclusive club. By comparison, I've yet to see a Craig interview where he doesn't say "fuck" every other word or seem dismissive of the previous films and actors. I don't think he means to do any of it on purpose, but he still comes across as a complete ass nonetheless.

  • May 7, 2012, 1:15 p.m. CST

    I should also add...

    by howlingmudd

    ...that Craig never really struck me that way prior to Bond. In the past, he always came across in interviews as this quiet, mousy guy. Now he's more like the high school loser that mistakes acting like a dick for being an alpha male.

    Roger Deakins?!

    by theswillmerchant

    I just saw Roger Deakins in that video. I guess I totally missed that he was shooting this. It makes sense though. That is the most exciting thing that I have heard about this movie so far.

    I think Daniel Craig is a good Bond

    by lv_426

    Connery as Bond will never be topped though. It is kind of like trying to recast Indiana Jones or Captain James T. Kirk. You can try, and sometimes it works okay (Chris Pine did a good job as young Kirk), but it is a big fucking gamble with shitty odds most of the time.

  • May 7, 2012, 5:56 p.m. CST

    Hopefully the last for Craig

    by peter skellen

    He looks about 60 already.

  • May 7, 2012, 6:26 p.m. CST

    Craig = OK...

    by PaulKersey

    But he's no Connery or Dalton...

  • May 7, 2012, 6:54 p.m. CST

    Huge 007 fan all my life and Daniel Craig is top notch bond.

    by clarntoon

    Your real problem is there is no more untapped material from the author who made it all happen and you don't like the hollywood attempts to re-create Ian Fleming

  • May 7, 2012, 6:55 p.m. CST

    Dalton = covergirl

    I got a Blade Runner vibe from that neon set.

    by Tristan

    Craig was missing his Heineken though. At the very least this movie is going to look fantastic.

  • May 8, 2012, 12:20 a.m. CST

    I thought the classic characterization of Bond was...

    by johndalf greymane

    a Neanderthal in a tuxedo. Craig seems to have done it right in Casino Royale, the right amount of suave crossed with caged leopard, but all of QoS escaped me. Utterly forgettable and very Bourne. Wooden even. Im hoping with a new script in the Bond style, he'll rise to the role. Moore made Bond goofy, and the rest have missed the mark imho. Craig definitely has the potential to be the best Bond since Connery... we will see.

    Hong Kong and Tokyo are like that right now, only clean. Google images of Hong Kong at night.

    I still think they should Mad Men Bond

    by tangcameo

    I've been reading the original books. This could be the UK's Mad Men.

    Neanderthal in a tuxedo?

    by peter skellen

    I've read all the books and that was not Fleming's intention. Bond was a fantasy version of himself. Do you think the ultra urbane snobbish Ian Fleming would want to be Daniel Craig? Fleming and Cubby would have loathed what Barbara Broccoli has done to the series.
