“Skyfall” storyboards were auctioned on Ebay

This production has had it’s fair share of leaks – spoilers concerning the use of the Aston Martin DB5 and the call sheets which leaked character names and fates to name just a couple.

Now Storyboards detailing some action scenes have been actioned online. The asking price for 52 pages of call sheet (with generally 3 frames per sheet) was a pricy $350.00. The company auctioning explained that the boards were a crew copy, but not specifically what scenes are characters are depicted. Fan’s can make educated guesses as the pictures are still available.

Since writing this, ComicBookMovie has acquired even more detailed photos of the storyboards.

Javier Bardem praises co-star Daniel Craig

The Spanish actor Bardem, who appeared as a shady silhouette in the first teaser trailer for Skyfall, says that Daniel Craig is “a great colleague”.

He told the National: ”He’s shooting non-stop and I’m thinking: ‘Oh my God, I don’t know how you do it’. He’s on top of all the stunts, and I go, ‘man, if I were you, I would be a mess’. In my opinion, he’s a great Bond.”

Although a raft of photos emerged onto the internet featuring Daniel Craig shooting on location in the UK and Turkey, Bond villain Bardem has kept a very low profile. The only picture we have seen of the actor in costume showed the villain in a clever disguise.

“Casino Royale” singer Chris Cornell backs Adele for “Skyfall” theme

The singer that performed “You Know My Name” – the theme Daniel Craig’s Casino Royale - told the media recently that English singer Adele would be perfect for a Bond theme.

“She’s phenomenal and it’s nice, in a day and age where so many vocals are fixed by computers, that the biggest album of last year was somebody who sings for real. I would hate to see music become more mechanistic and less human, so her success has been great.”

Adele has been in and out of the media with rumours that she submitted a track to the Bond producers.
