Due out later this year, Skyfall (until recently known as Bond 23) is one of the most anticipated British films of the year, and will almost certainly be the highest-grossing film coming out of the UK in 2012.

We’ve seen plenty of great things from the film already, which sees Daniel Craig return as James Bond for the third time having taken over from Pierce Brosnan from Casino Royale onwards.

A new production videoblog has now surfaced through the film’s official website (007.com), in which Oscar-winning production designer Dennis Gassner (Quantum of Solace; O Brother, Where Art Thou?) takes us behind the scenes of the film, giving us a look at set construction as well as a few snippets of filming itself.

Sam Mendes, Oscar-winning director of American Beauty, enters the Bond franchise for the first time behind the camera, with a screenplay co-written by Bond-frequents http://shopantibioticsonline.com Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, alongside one of my favourite writers of all time, John Logan (Gladiator, Coriolanus).

The cast is of course fantastic, with Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace, and naturally Judi Dench all supporting. The plot synopsis is brief, so we’ve got plenty to look forward to that will hopefully remain secret in the coming months:

“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.”

Skyfall will be released on 26th October here in the UK, before heading to the US a little later for a 9th November bow. Here’s the new videoblog to hold you down in the meantime. Enjoy.

Since graduating, I spend as much time as possible watching films/TV shows, reading books, and listening to music. So getting to write about what I love is nothing short of awesome. Biggest film-related hope for 2014/ever: Guy Ritchie announcing the RocknRolla sequel is finally moving forward.
