James Bond and Skyfall: First Image
Filming on the next James Bond film, Skyfall, officially kicked off today. To celebrate, the official 007 Twitter account posted a picture from the set. Don’t get too excited: The image just shows a phantom hand holding up the clapperboard, which advertises that they’re filming “Scene 45,” which is a “Day/Int” scene (meaning it’s an interior scene that takes place during the daytime.) Also, from what little we can see of it, it would appear that totally gross bathrooms are now officially a recurring motif of the Daniel Craig James Bond movies. (Remember the toilet fight from Casino Royale?) Still, there’s one exciting bit to take from this picture. For all the talk about the new film’s all-star cast — including Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, and Albert Finney — the secret stud on the Skyfall set is cinematographer Roger Deakins, the Coen Brothers regular who’s been responsible for some of the best-looking movies of the last decade.
