The signs are all pointing to it – surely Skyfall is going to become the first James Bond film to be nominated for the best picture award at the Oscars? Yesterday it was reported that the Daniel Craig-starring, Sam Mendes-directed 007 flick has been nominated among ten films for a Producers Guild of America award. That usually means that a film’s in with a good shout of being nominated at the Academy Awards, given that the winner of the PGA has gone on to win the ultimate prize in 16 of the last 23 years.

Now further hope has been given to the Bond team with the news, reported by The Hollywood Reporter, that the Academy is to have a special tribute section to the Bond franchise as it celebrates 50 years. “We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday,” said producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. “Starting with Dr. No back in 1962, the 007 movies have become the longest-running motion picture franchise in history and a beloved global phenomenon.”

Despite its enduring commercial success – Skyfall recently topped the $1 billion mark globally at the box office – the Bond franchise has never been taken seriously by the Academy. The 23 films have managed to muster just two wins and seven nominations between them, all coming in relatively minor categories; there’s been no nomination in any category since 1982. You have to believe that this year is going to be different.

Skyfall, Sam Mendes’ critically acclaimed James Bond movie, has taken more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The latest film is now the most successful film in British box-office history, though it remains at No.2 on a list of movie gaffes spotted by eagle eyed cinemagoers. They had to go and spoil it.

According to the online list at moviemistakes.com, Skyfall contains 35 gaffes, second only to Men In Black III with 63. Among the most glaring errors include during the opening ‘train scene’ when Bond’s footwear changes from black lace up shoes to black slip on ankle boots. During the thrilling Istanbul chase scene, Eve knocks out of the windshield of her car, though for the rest of the chase, half the glass is back in the frame. In the chase through the tube station, both Bond and his enemy Silva (Javier Bardem) slide down between the escalators, though the London Underground has hard vertical signs to stop people falling. In one of the movie’s concluding scenes, Bond reaches the chapel and plunges into the icy water, though he appears to be perfectly dry just seconds later.

The 23rd official Bond film became the first movie ever to take £100 million at the British box office this past weekend, ($1 billion worldwide). Daniel Craig’s third Bond movie is STILL on general release more than two months after its release, such is the continuing demand.

Timothy Dalton has suggested that the newest James Bond film Skyfall is deserving of winning one of the major Academy Awards.

The 68-year-old actor played James Bond twice in the 1980s in the feature films The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill.

Speaking to The Sunday Express, Dalton backed current 007 Daniel Craig’s performance.

“It is absolutely time for Bond to get proper attention at the Oscars,” he stressed. “On almost every level this Bond movie [Skyfall] is right at the forefront of what cinema is capable of.”

He went on to say: “[Skyfall] is an absolutely modern James Bond, a movie truly of its time. Daniel Craig is fantastic and it feels very real.

“It has also got a great story about M with a nice streak of cynicism. I thought the film was fabulous.”

Dalton went on to suggest that his own Bond films may have been “a forerunner” for the more serious Bond films of the current Craig era.

“A lot of people have said Licence to Kill was a forerunner of Bond today and in a sense that is what [producer] Cubby [Broccoli] and I were trying to do,” he said.

“The Bond movies were becoming pastiches of themselves but they were still successful and people were not ready to embrace a new formula. There was a lot of innate resistance to change.”

Los Angeles: Daniel Craig starrer ‘Skyfall’ has become the most successful James Bond film in the 007 spy series by crossing the USD 1 billion mark worldwide. Directed by Sam Mendes and marking Craig’s third turn as the iconic spy, the movie reached the milestone yesterday when its worldwide tally hit USD 1 billion, by far the best showing of any Bond picture, not accounting for inflation, the Hollywood Reporter said.

“It is truly thrilling to reach this incredible milestone,” said MGM chairman-CEO Gary Barber.

‘Skyfall’ is also the third movie of 2012 to cross USD 1 billion in worldwide ticket sales after Disney and Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ (USD 1.51 billion) and Warner Bros’ ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (USD 1.08 billion). Only 14 films have grossed USD 1 billion or more so far.

‘Skyfall’ has grossed USD 289.6 million domestically and USD 710.6 million internationally, becoming the highest grossing film in Sony’s history and the first to jump USD 1 billion.

“To see a film connect with audiences is always gratifying, but the success of this film is nothing short of extraordinary. After 50 years of entertaining audiences all over the world, Skyfall is the most successful James Bond film

of all time,” Sony’s vice chairman Jeff Blake said.

The film, from Eon Productions, is the 23rd installment in the iconic British spy franchise. Skyfall also stars Javier Bardem, Judi Dench and Ralph Fiennes
