James Bond Skyfall Mini-Rushes

As we head into 2012, the year that the James Bond film series reaches its 50th anniversary and 23rd (official) release, a new website has been launched to drip-feed publicity materal.

You can find it at 007.com (really, where else) but all there is at the moment, pretty much, is an official behind the scenes video. This official behind the scenes video:

Slim.

There might be a clue in that clip, with the illuminated sign in the background giving away a location, but I doubt it’s anything too specific. Still, its hard not to squint at things like this and be curious. Closely guarded films like this are real teases to me.

In the case of Skyfall, the slow release of information all seems to be part of the plan. Helen McRory and Ralph Fiennes were at first denied permission to reveal anything about their roles, but that tie seems to have loosened a little now.

In this clip from Lorraine, McRory talks about how she can’t reveal a single thing about her Skyfall character:

But… on the same day as that aired, the official Bond Twitter announced:

Helen McCrory will be playing a British Member Of Parliament called Clair Dowar…

As for Fiennes, he spoke to The Sunday Mail in Scotland, and gave away just one aspect of his role:

I’m allowed to say that I’m a government agent.

Which government? Probably the Brits, eh? Well, that seems to squash the Blofeld rumours.

Skyfall continues production and is due for release around the world some 297 days from now.
