James Bond will be released worldwide on October 31, 2012. ‘Skyfall’, directed by Sam Mendes and casting by Daniel Craig (our super handsome gentleman 007), Naomie Harris (a super sexy Miss Moneypenny) and Javier Bardem (in the role of the super villain Raoul Silva).
The new movie of the perfect MI6 British agent is titled Skyfall and today, it’s the premiere in Madrid (19:30 pm Teatro Español). Yesterday, it was in London.
Javier Barden returned to his country triumphant and praised by the world press, especially by the British press, who has said he has many possibilities of becoming the best villain of 007 films of every time.
Skyfall is the twenty-third spy film in the James Bond series. Then, James Bond is being one of the most filmed characters in the history of the cinema (in strong competition with Sherlock Holmes). This time the movie has been written by John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, produced by Eon Productions and distributed by MGM and Sony Pictures Entertainment. In few words, Skyfall has the best of the best and in fact, the film’s release coincided with the 50th anniversary of the series, which began with Dr. No in 1962 and what is being celebrated in different museums and cinemas all around the word, including the MoMA in NY.
However, maybe beating out such big names, it is Javier Bardem, one of the best live actors. In my opinion, more attractive than the own Daniel Craig, but with too much personality as not play problematic roles. His career is outstanding. Javier Bardem has been awarded with a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a BAFTA, five Goya awards, two European Film Awards, a Prize for Best Actor at Cannes and two Coppa Volpis at Venice Festival. He is the first Spaniard to be nominated for an Oscar (Best Actor, 2000, for Before Night Falls), and also, the first Spanish actor to win an Academy Award in 2007, for Best Supporting Actor, in his role as psychopathic killer in No Country for Old Men.
In Skyfall, Javier Bardem plays a former MI6 agent, Raoul Silva, now against the world and his old partners, and enrolled in an attack on MI6 (this is the final film with Judi Dench as M) which, of course, must be investigated by James Bond. Good and Bad agents again, face to face, who will win? Of course, we know the winner in the plot but… acting? Craig or Bardem, which do you prefer?
Of course, we need to see the film. In some minutes, I’ll see it. I’ll tell you later.
