Box-office smash, Skyfall, will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on 18th February 2013 courtesy of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Directed by Oscar® winner Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, Skyfall's 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.
Accolades continued with the recent announcement of eight BAFTA® 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.
