Your chance to spot James Bond knocking down VB’s while helping the local branch of Sony flip some snags, folks!
Daniel Craig’s headed down under for the Australian premiere of “Skyfall” (misleading title but it should not to be confused with either “Drop Zone” or “Terminal Velocity” – not that they’re also not, er, excellent films), the latest in the unyielding “Bond, James Bond… and I’m a workaholic” cinematic lectures.
Here’s the press release :
SYDNEY: 11th September, 2012
Sony Pictures Releasing is delighted to announce Daniel Craig, along with co-stars Naomie Harris (Eve) , Bėrėnice Marlohe (Severine) and Producer Barbara Broccoli, will be in Sydney on the evening of Friday November 16 to attend the Australian Premiere of the highly anticipated 23rd James Bond action adventure SKYFALL.

Daniel Craig is back as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 in SKYFALL™, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In SKYFALL, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
