The record breaking 23rd installment of the James Bond film franchise was directed by Sam Mendes and starred Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench and Ralph Fiennes
In Skyfall, Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
Last year the 23rd film based on Ian Fleming's popular super spy became the first in the franchise to cross $1 billion mark in worldwide box office gross. In 2013 it garnered seven Academy Award nominations and most recently a Golden Globe win for Best Original Song (Adele's "Skyfall") and a SAG Award for Best Stunt Ensemble.
A new poster for the film has debuted online featuring Albert Finney as the Bond family's groundskeeper Kincaid. The poster was created but never used to promote the theatrical release:
Skyfall is directed by Academy Award® winner Sam Mendes and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his third film as Agent 007 James Bond, Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Ola Rapace, Helen McCrory, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw. The screenplay is written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and John Logan. The film is scheduled for release on Blu-ray and DVD this February.
