Are you planning to catch the newest 007 film in theatres? Well, you may get to see James Bond in action a little sooner than originally planned. As it turns out, SKYFALL will land in North American IMAX theatres on November 8, a day earlier than its regular theatrical release date!
This will be the first James Bond film ever to be released in IMAX. SKYFALL was specially formatted to feature a larger aspect ratio – making it perfect for IMAX. This is meant to give audiences an up-close view and place them right in the centre of the action!
We'll have to wait a few more weeks for the big day to arrive, but here is some trivia about SKYFALL to hold you over.
- This will be the first Daniel Craig Bond movie to not feature the American CIA Felix Leiter character.
- The train crash sequence was filmed without using any CGI effects.
- SKYFALL is the first one-word Bond movie title in 17 years, with the last one being GOLDENEYE. It's also the shortest ever one word James Bond movie title.
- According to the movie's producer Barbara Broccoli, the film's title "has some emotional context which will be revealed in the film."
- The film's "Skyfall" theme song is sung by Adele. On the first day of its release, it reached the Top 10 on iTunes charts in 21 countries.
- James Bond's classic silver car, the Aston Martin DB5, returns to the screen. The vehicle was first seen in GOLDFINGER. Other vehicles in the film include the Jaguar XJL and a Range Rover Vogue SE.
