25th October 2012

Thousands of fans lined the red carpet for a chance to chat to James Bond star Daniel Craig and his "Skyfall" co-stars as they entered the Royal Albert Hall for London's long-awaited Royal Premiere with His Royal Highness Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. Once seated, a brass band played a Bond theme medley and the Royal couple walked the red carpet. The 007 producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli took to the stage to thank the attendees. Wilson confirmed that the evenings proceedings raised £300,000+ for the Prince's charities. After the producers' comments, Mendes introduced his cast and thanked them. He concluded by noting that, "Tonight, Bond belongs to everyone."

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 Bond films.
