Badass Sliding James Bond Promo Art for 'Skyfall' Revealed in Full
If you've been to the movies recently, you've probably seen this James Bond promo standee on display in the lobby somewhere. I've been sent numerous cell phone photos of the 007 cardboard sign, which features Bond sliding on his back in a slick blue suit, gun drawn. It's a fantastic bit of marketing for Sam Mendes' Skyfall, the 23rd Bond film due out this November. I totally love that imagery of Bond sliding, it's perfect and captures everything exciting about this movie in one swoop. In addition to good shots of that standee, HeyUGuys has found a Taiwanese version of the same banner that gives us a clear, full look at the artwork.
I love the marketing for this. First, a good look at the badass Skyfall theater standee (via BondandBeyond):
Here's the Taiwanese promo banner for Bond's Skyfall, with the same sliding action pose from the standee:
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. Check out my on set experience in Istanbul. Awesome?

It could have been so good, but it doesn't give the sense of movement... It should be slightly tilted so it would give off more "movement"... Such potential wasted...

They should have put a corona in his hand cuz he looks like he is posing on a beach for a beer commercial, not like he is sliding.. Then put a couple of bikinis in the background.... now that was be badass
