Unused Kincade poster revealed

The nature of Albert Finney’s role in Skyfall was just one of the many closely guarded secrets whilst the 23rd Bond film was in production. It took months before we got our first unofficial look at Kincade, the Skyfall groundskeeper who aids 007 in his final assault against Silva.

It is quite understandable that the legendary British actor, Finney, was not a major part of the promotion. Nevertheless, artists behind the Skyfall promotional campaign prepared a poster of the fine old gentleman, which has recently been released online.

“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. And indeed, others have a similar view.

New video blog from 007.com focuses on London

Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig both open up about their experience and inspiration for keeping Bond at home for much of 007′s 23rd adventure, Skyfall. Watch the video diary posted by 007.com:

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.
