An official picture from @007‘s own twitter account has been released which confirms a party/martini sequence is being shot. The below photo was posted with the caption “Dry martini?”
Also, through many unofficial channels we know that Skyfall was shooting at London’s Canary Wharf – more specifically at the local branch of the Four Seasons hotel – to capture a poolside sequence.
The 23rd James Bond film crew shot for a single day, December 1st, with a day either side dedicated to setup and pack down. Windows were blacked out on the infinity pool to ether create a “false” night or, as some fans speculate, to allow the pool area to double for a location other than London. The below shot was captured from a building opposite, despite the high security that comes with the shooting of a Bond film.

The first major announcement from EON Productions and Sony Pictures came on 3rd November 2011 in London when the principle cast was announced, along with a rough plot line. In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
