Rome & Zurich Premiere Photos

27th October 2012

The James Bond franchise proved it could be in two places at the same time yesterday, when the cast and crew of 'Skyfall' split up to cover simultaneous premiere events in Europe.

Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, director Sam Mendes and producer Barbara Broccoli headed to Rome for the Italian premiere on Friday 26th October 2012 at The Space Cinema Moderno. Whilst Craig wore a slate Tom Ford suit, Harris donned another daring see through outfit similar to the world premiere.

Meanwhile over in Switzerland, Bérénice Marlohe and Javier Bardem attended the Zurich premiere with producer Michael G. Wilson and associate producer Gregg Wilson on the same night. Perhaps in a nod to the 50th anniversary, Marlohe wore a metallic golden dress with plunging neckline.

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.
