“Skyfall” bonds with coke

An unlikely match between the low (no) sugar Coca-Cola product Coke-Zero and the world’s most sophisticated secret agent was made recently. Although the Coke/007 bond was cemented for Quantum of Solace, we can’t help but think that the larger, mainstream Brand’s would not get a winning smile from Cubby Broccoli or 007′s seminal director Terence Young.

MGM looks to “Skyfall” to enhance its public offering

According to the FT report, Skyfall will be a drawcard for those looking to purchase their share of the big cat, recently emerged from bankruptcy.

The credits include Daniel Craig and his Skyfall co-stars as voices in the game as well as some minor parts going to actors who play guards, goons etc… including, it is worth noting, cast for two missions that have yet to be officially announced by Activision.

Character posters for “Skyfall” UK campaign

James Bond appears alongside his newest foe, Silva, and Bond girls Eve and Severine in a new teaser banner for UK cinemas.

This is a slightly different marketing tactic than we saw in the US with large cardboard cutouts of Daniel Craig in an action pose.

These posters have not got some excited, with adjectives such as “dull” being used by some bloggers.
