Bond's Classy UK Poster for 'Skyfall' Reminds Us How to be Swanky
"Just look at you - chasing spies, England, the empire, MI6. So old fashioned." Sliding or standing? Which do you prefer? Eon Productions has debuted the latest poster (via ComingSoon) for James Bond's Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes, starring Daniel Craig as 007. Just last week we unveiled the official US poster, featuring the same sliding Bond-in-sleek-blue-suit photo we've seen them use before. This time they've gone back to the classy Bond we know, just posing him with Walter PPK in hand in front of the dark gun-barrel swirl and a hint of London's Union Jack. I quite like it, but it's not that original in design. See in full below!
Here's the new UK Skyfall poster. Do you like this pose/design better than the one where he's sliding along?
Skyfall is being directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Jarhead, Revolutionary Road, Away We Go), from a script by John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Skyfall will once again star Daniel Craig as James Bond 007, along with Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench as M, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Marlohe, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace with Ben Whishaw. You can also follow the official twitter @007 for updates as well, they've been tweeting photos and more. Columbia Pictures, Eon Productions and MGM have Skyfall set to hit US theaters on November 9th this fall. We'll continue to keep you updated on all things Bond. Less than two more months to go! Which do you like?

I don't quite like it that much. The sliding poster was better.

This movie will blow everybody's mind! As much as Casino Royale was perfection in cinema, it was just the origins of how Bond became the true Agent 007. Now Quantum of Solace was suppose to be about him being cold blooded and super badass, and instead, we got a sentimental Bond. But no matter no matter, Vesper is all in the past now that he finally got "his revenge" with Vesper's boyfriend and now we get the classy, super bad ass Agent 007 with gadgets, Q, the hot women, traveling around Europe and Asia. Can't wait for this movie!

The coldest blood runs through his veins, you know his name 😉

He was pretty cold-blooded and badass in Quantum, precisely because of his obsession with revenge. Don't think I saw a "sentimental" Bond in that movie. The brilliance of the new 007 films is that they give Bond a REASON to be so ruthless. I hope that same attention to his characterization continues in Skyfall. I like the continuity so far.

I think they need one with Daniel giving a slight smirk i think that would make this poster

While I really like the idea of this poster, after seeing it on the glossy pages of a magazine the other day Daniel Craig looked more like a waxwork figure. Not sure what went wrong in the transfer!
