Vauxhall Bridge Filming
17th February 2012
The "Skyfall" crew
continued their location shoot on Vauxhall Bridge on Sunday 12th
February, this time with cast members Dame
Judi Dench and Rory
Kinnear in attendance, guided by director Sam Mendes. The
shoot took over 4 hours with the road closed to the public.
The action shot
on the bridge will be seen at the beginning of the
film, when M's car is blocked from getting close to
the famous MI6 building by police. M and Tanner watch
in horror as an explosion rocks the area. The fireball
will be a digital effect, unlike "The World Is
Not Enough" when the production built a large
scale replica of the front of the building in order
to blow a hole in it.
The 23rd James Bond
film, "Skyfall", commenced principal studio photography on 7th November
2011 for a UK
release on October 26th, 2012 and the USA on November
9, 2012. MGM will produce, finance and distribute 007's
23rd adventure in
partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Daniel Craig will
be returning as the legendary British secret agent, alongside Judi
Dench as "M", with Sam Mendes directing a screenplay written by Neal
Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. The cast will also include Bérénice Marlohe,
Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Wishaw.
The film will shoot at Pinewood Studios and on location in London, England;
Scotland; Shanghai, China and Istanbul, Turkey.
It will be the longest gap between Bond movies without
a change in the lead role. In addition, 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of
the EON Productions series of James
