Skyfall is a 2012 spy film and the twenty-third in the James Bond series produced by Eon Productions. The film is the third to star Daniel Craig as fictional MI6 agent James Bond and features Javier Bardem as Raoul Silva, the villain, and Judi Dench as M. It was directed by Sam Mendes and written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and John Logan, and features the theme song "Skyfall", written and performed by Adele. It was theatrically distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing. The story centres on Bond investigating an attack on MI6 that leads to a wider plot by former agent Raoul Silva to discredit and kill M as revenge for abandoning him. It sees the return of two recurring characters after an absence of two films: Q, played by Ben Whishaw, and Miss Moneypenny, played by Naomie Harris.

Raoul Silva: (about M) Everyone, listen to me. Don't you dare touch her. She's mine!
  • This film and the previous two Bond films have villains with names based on colors. They are Raoul Silva (silver) in 'Skyfall', Dominic Greene (green) in Quantum of Solace (2008), and Mr. White in both Casino Royale (2006) and of Quantum of Solace (2008).
  • This is the 23rd James Bond movie in the EON Productions official series and the 25th theatrically released James Bond film including the spoof Casino Royale (1967) and the unofficial Never Say Never Again (1983). It is also the 26th James Bond film if counting the TV episode tele-movie Climax!: Casino Royale (1954). Moreover, Skyfall's associated video-game, 007 Legends (2012), which has a 'Skyfall' mission, is also the 23rd title in its James Bond video-game series.
  • The film's opening sequence shot in Adana and Istanbul in Turkey took around two months to film, three months of rehearsals, four months of preparation, 200 crew members from England and another 200 local crew in order to produce around 12-14 minutes of screen time.
  • The exotic Calis Beach, a remote beach in Fethiye, a coastal town on the in the south of Turkey, was a great challenge for the locations department to secure for filming a sequence featuring James Bond. EON Productions had to negotiate with the six hundred and thirteen part owners of the beach to allow filming to take place there.
  • According to the UK Sun newspaper (a tabloid known for its indiscretion and inaccuracy), leading Bond Girl Bérénice Marlohe, said that James Bond actor Daniel Craig was coy and hesitant before filming their love scene in the shower. Marlohe said: "He was very shy and when he saw me entering the shower, he was like, 'Oh my god'. He tried to keep his underpants on for the shower scenes but I said, 'No, come on, don't be shy. I will do anything to make you feel comfortable".
