Skyfall US PosterSam Mendes’ Skyfall is finally opening wide across the US today. Having debuted to excellent early reviews – you can read our review here – and record-breaking box office figures in the UK, becoming the biggest film of the year on our shores, things are looking very good for the latest James Bond venture.

Daniel Craig reprises his role in the lead, and after catching a new TV spot for the film yesterday, IMAX have released a new featurette, in promotion of the film’s release in their jaw-droppingly enormous screens.

“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.”

Craig stars alongside a fantastic cast, headed up by Javier Bardem, Bérénice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Albert Finney, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace, and Dame Judi Dench.

Mendes, the Oscar-winning director of American Beauty, is making his Bond debut behind the camera, with a script penned by Bond frequents Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and the ever-brilliant John Logan (Gladiator, Coriolanus).

Skyfall is currently playing in cinemas across the UK, and after arriving in IMAX theatres in the US a day early yesterday, the film is hitting cinemas across the States today. If you’re heading to a cinema this weekend, this looks like a very good choice, wherever you are.
