Fans of the Bond film series will want to investigate James Bond Unmasked, a new book by film journalist Bill Desowitz who interviewed all six classic and current 007 actors.

NO took the cinematic world by storm, Desowitz got official debriefings on this phenomenon from Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and the current 007 soon appearing in SKYFALL, Daniel Craig.
Desowitz not only gains personal insights on the Bond role from the actors who played him, but collecting these exclusive interviews in one volume also puts the entire 007 film experience into historical and social perspective then and now.

1st official SKYFALL photo released // February 01. 2012
As promised earlier today, the official James Bond website 007.com has released the first officially released photo from SKYFALL, the 23rd Bond film in the action-packed franchise.
The image depicts star Daniel Craig back as Bond, gun drawn and on the lookout for danger somewhere in Shanghai, China (or a London movie set facsimile thereof).
Consistent with the apparent wintertime setting of the film (as evidenced by the chilly London rooftop shoot glimpsed last year), Bond is bundled up in a stylish jacket and dark gloves in this night shoot.

Production video relaunches Official 007 webstite for SKYFALL // December 28. 2011
The official James Bond 007 website has relauched itself with a new design and content geared directly to promote SKYFALL while also paying homage to the Bond legacy. The grayscale, high-tech design is eyecatching and appropriately gritty for the Daniel Craig era of 007, and the content is fairly robust for the new site jumpstart including sections for News, Skyfall, the Bond in Motion vehicle exhibit, Videos and Games currently touting the GoldenEye 007: Reloaded platform game. A retro flip-card countdown ticks off the 296-or-so days until SKYFALL debuts in theaters. Watch the introductory video by veteran Bond producer Michael G. Wilson in FilmEdge's Video Surveillance sector.
