After having gone their separate ways to simultaneously cover the Rome and Zurich premieres, Craig was united with his Bond girl, Naomie Harris, as well as Sam Mendes and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson for an impressive premiere in Madrid, Spain on 29th October. The premiere was originally scheduled for 27th October at the Teatro Espanol, but was ultimately pushed back a couple of days for fear that demonstrations in the capital would disrupt proceedings. As usual fans lined the red carpet, hoping to get a glimpse of the stars and a gun barrel-camera was set up on the carpet so that celebrities and attendees could pose in the centre of the classic Bond icon.

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.
