Watch: Sam Mendes' First Video Blog for Bond 23 'Skyfall' Revealed
"Here was a real man in a real situation again." The very first video blog for Bond 23, Skyfall, has debuted on the official 007.com website (via ComingSoon). Taking a cue from The Hobbit, director Sam Mendes presents the first of hopefully many video blogs from the set of Skyfall, this time talking about why he was the perfect guy for the job. He also says some nice things about Daniel Craig, returning as Agent 007, and gives us a tease of the locations he's been shooting in England. "It is still possible to make a big, fabulous, glamorous, escapist movie and yet - at the same time, to say something about the world we're living in."
