James Bond’s Newest Adventure “Skyfall” Hits Blu-ray This February

The latest James Bond film, Skyfall, is arriving on Blu-ray this February and I am quite excited for it.  Currently ranking as one of the most successful Bond films of all time, both critically (Great reviews all over and 5 Oscar Nominations) and commercially (One Billion Dollars *holds pinky to lip, Dr. Evil style*), this entry in the James Bond canon has pleased many everywhere, including myself (Review Here).  I really enjoyed this action-packed feature for all its elaborate set pieces, style, and true Bond coolness, and I am truly excited to witness Roger Deakins’ gorgeous cinematography on the Blu-ray format.  As is the case with all of the James Bond films, Skyfall looks to be packed with special features and I am sure they will cover almost every aspect of the film.  Skyfall arrives on Blu-ray February 12th and you can read the press release below to learn more about this upcoming release.

EXPLOSIVE 23RD INSTALLMENT OF THE JAMES BOND FRANCHISE

SKYFALL

The Highest-Grossing Bond Film of All-Time Comes Home In February
007’S Latest Mission Available on Digital HD February 5
Blu-ray and DVD To Follow Beginning February 12

LOS ANGELES, CA (January 24, 2013) – Box-office smash, SKYFALL, will soon be available to own in high-definition, it was announced today by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. SKYFALL will release on Digital HD February 5th across all digital stores including Amazon, CinemaNow, iTunes, PlayStation, VUDU and Xbox Live. The SKYFALL Blu-ray and DVD will follow on February 12th in North America and February 18th in the United Kingdom with additional international markets to follow through March.

Directed by Oscar® winner Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, SKYFALL’s high definition home entertainment release follows the phenomenal theatrical success of the 23rd installment of the longest-running franchise in film history. Taking in more than $1 billion (USD), the British secret-service agent dominated the worldwide box-office and has become the highest grossing film ever in the United Kingdom – Bond’s home country.

Accolades continued with the recent announcement of eight BAFTA® [British Academy of Film and Television Arts] nominations including Outstanding British Film; Supporting Actor, Javier Bardem; and Supporting Actress, Judi Dench. Adele’s “Skyfall” was recognized with a Golden Globe® award and an Academy Award® nomination for Original Song, one of the film’s five Oscar® nominations.

The theatrical debut of SKYFALL capped a year-long celebration of James Bond’s golden anniversary. Honoring 50 years since 007 first appeared on-screen, the global campaign was highlighted with the release of BOND 50, a collectible box-set featuring all 22 James Bond films on Blu-ray Disc for the first time in one complete offering. The box-set includes a placeholder for SKYFALL so consumers can complete their 50th anniversary collection.

In SKYFALL Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past returns to haunt her. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows – aided only by field agent, Eve (Naomie Harris) – following a trail to the mysterious Silva (Javier Bardem), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.

With the Blu-ray, go behind-the-scenes of Bond’s latest mission with more than three hours of in-depth special features. Shooting Bond brings adrenaline-hungry fans closer to the heart-stopping action and 007’s world of worthy villains, glamorous women, exotic locations and the coolest gadgets.
