Wide Tube Sneak Peak: Skyfall is Bond 23

Finally, it has been confirmed that the 23rd Bond movie will be Skyfall. The project was initially set to begin in 2010, but due to MGM's financial trouble that year; it was temporarily put on hold.

Berenice Marlohe, Daniel Craig and Naomie Harris during the photocall in London.

James Bond will be portrayed by Daniel Craig for the third time. His leading ladies are French actress Berenice Marlohe and Naomie Harris. I know Harris starred in 28 Days later opposite Cillian Murphy and was also seen in Pirates of the Caribbean as the witch doctor Tia Dalma.

The movie casts include Judi Dench as M, as head of MI6; Ralph Fiennes (more known as Voldemort), Albert Finney and Javier Bardem as the villain.

The movie will be directed by Sam Mendes, who directed the award winning American Beauty in 1999. It is scheduled to be released on October 26, 2012.

I practically grew up with the character since my father had a betamax collection of the series from Sean Connery, Roger Moore, George Lazenby and Timothy Dalton. Lazenby is the least famous while Connery for me is the most famous Bond actor. After Dalton, we did not have the collection with Pierce Brosnan's Bond movies good thing my brother abroad took the opportunity to get the Collector's Edition of for my father. We have now the complete 20 movies up to Brosnan's.

The movie never fails to amaze me with the secret agent's awesome gadgetry. I cannot wait for the movie to be released. I hope that Skyfall will show new cars, tricks and gadgets that has become a legacy of every Bond film.
