Another James Bond girl confirmed for Skyfall

British Bond site MI6 were the first to break the news that Tonia Sotiropoulou, a Greek actress, will be playing a role in the pre titles sequence set in Turkey.

The news hit all the major sources today after MI6 found the actress had left her privacy settings on Facebook the default… wide open!

She thanked her friends and family and reportedly said the following to her local papers: “This is the happiest day of my life so far! I feel very lucky and blessed, but basically, I am very grateful that this happened, for my family and my friends who believe in me and support trying to do. I will do the best, I am very proud because somehow it might be something that will advertise in Greece and I am happy about it.”

Possible “Skyfall” Teaser Trailer description hits the web

IMDb is not renowned for its accuracy regarding in-production films. Nonethless a poster at their forums named Liz has revealed that she (as a media studies student) sat in on a rough cut of the Skyfall teaser trailer.

The description she offers of what fans can expect when the trailer is officially released could be a well researched fake, pieced together from internet sources and rumours alike, but make what you will of this fantastic-sounding taster of Bond 23:

Just seen a very rough cut of the Skyfall Teaser trailer. I can’t remember everything from it, but it’s due to be released late February, that’s what the guy said anyway. About 20 or so were in the screening. They were all University Students, or I assume so anyway. I myself am a media student, and I assumed everyone else was. But anyway. The trailer roughly ran for about 1minute and 45 seconds. From what I saw, Skyfall looks really really really good. A lot better than Quantum of Solace was. I think it’s more on par with Casino Royale. Well that’s the vibe I got from it anyway, which is good in my book. Roger Deakins’ camera work is just phenomenal, there was so many beautiful shots. Too many to count really. Some very nice swooping shots of what I think was Smithfield market and London in general.

The best thing about the trailer was Bonds big reveal around half way through. When it started, you don’t even realise it’s a Bond movie. If I wasn’t in a screening for it, I really wouldn’t of known. The music was really mysterious, too. From the first 30 seconds it looked like a political thriller / present day war movie.

The first shot of the trailer, besides the opening logo’s is a really dark shot of a tall office building. I think it was China but I’m not too sure. There was a voice over from Ralph Fiennes (Love that guys voice) talking about the cold war, and it’s repercussions within MI6. This was followed by what I think was a gas attack, people were running and screaming and collapsing. Then the whole friggen set just blew up! Judi Dench appeared. She looked really old and it is revealed that she and Fiennes character are talking. Fiennes says that he’s lost too many agents in the attack (Which I assumed was before), and he needs someone to overlook the case, and find it’s source. M mentions that she has an agent in mind, or something to that degree, but he’s resigned, and they’re unable to track him down. Fiennes says that he has to be found and brought back to duty. The whole conversation with Fiennes and Dench was really heated, and it sounded as if he was blaming her, which brings me to the next part where he mentions that he’s seriously doubting whether she’s fit for duty anymore. That she’s losing her touch. There’s a few dramatic shots afterwards, of a Bond walking through a very colourful building. It looked like a nightclub, very cool. He was wearing a black jacket and gloves. Like the end of Quantum of Solace. We don’t actually see Bond until he gets in a fist fight with what looked like a Sniper. Daniel Craig looks awesome! Very cold eyes, brutal. There was one shot where everyone gasped, because it felt so real and brutal. Bond is overpowered and captured, and the next shot has Bond walking into what I assumed was his apartment. M’s standing there, and she apologises for the force she used to bring him to her. Bond says that he’s pretty much finished with the service. He’s seen loads of disturbing things and he doesn’t want to relive them. He then talks about the attacks, and M says something about her life being in danger, and Bond is the only person she trusts. She then goes on to tell him that the government is starting to collapse, and its being invaded by enemy agents. We see a few shots of Helen McRorys character, walking down a crowded street. Bond mentions that out of respect for her, and for queen and country he’ll return to duty.

Now this is where it gets good. Massive Bond theme. A new variation, and not the one that was used in the GoldenEye and BloodStone trailers etc. Sounded really exciting. It followed the same lines as the Casino Royale theatrical trailer melody wise, but it was obviously a different mix.

Couldn’t really get all of the shots because they were so fast (although brilliantly shot) but the ones I remember are Bond overpowering a guy driving a jeep, and nearly crashing the car. Tanner and Bond running down a London street with guns, in the rain. Protecting M. A train being derailed, and the carriage slowly missing Bond. Javier Bardem running through a busy street, Bond jumping over a wall. Lovely shot of Bond getting off a plane, reminded me a lot of Casino Royale. Car chase, a shot of Bond getting thrown against a dirty bathroom mirror, Bond head butting someone. Naomi Harris’shooting in the back of a jeep, in what looked like a desert, A car exploding. Bond on a motorbike, firing a machine gun. Bond jumping off a roof, and landing screaming on the floor. We have a break from the music here, and have Bond and Harris on a rooftop, Bond tells her that he’s totally lost faith, he didn’t say what in, just that he has no faith. This is followed by shots of a horse and carriage and loads of coffins. It goes back to Harris who tells Bond that he needs to continue to fight, for the good of the country. Bond mentions that he always is fighting, even though he has nothing worth living for. The music builds and we enter the climax of the trailer. Loads of shots, but I cant remember them all. Seem to remember Bond on a Jet Ski, Berinice Merhole walking down villa steps, Bond removing glasses, performing a 360 turn in the DB5. M getting thrown around in the DB5, Bond pressing a button in his car and… this leads into the big money shot, blowing up an obstacle and driving through it.. BUT the car kinda goes out of control, and it starts to overturn in mid air. Then the title and release date came up. Had a CGI shot of Bond walking in the rain, in slow motion, in an open necked tuxedo holding a silenced gun.

Funeral scenes shot in London yesterday for “Skyfall”

As well as shooting in Trinity Square, the production team on Skyfall shot scenes at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

Before the official twitter of Bond, @007, could post a tasty teaser of the sequence, local reporters were already on the scene. The official twitter pic teaser can be seen below.

Based on the other scene numbers released so far, this sequence appears early in the film, shortly before (presumed Shanghai) nightclub scenes and the grungy office setup that was captured on Day 10.

The funeral scene features eight coffins draped in the Union Jack.

The last time 007 headed to Greenwich was during the filming of the high-action pre titles sequence for The World Is Not Enough.
