Directed by Oscar winner Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, Skyfall's high definition home entertainment 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 - Bond's home country.

Accolades continued with the recent announcement of eight BAFTA [British Academy of Film and Television Arts] 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.

        Decent cover art. I always liked that poster, just think they shouldn't have had it be the DVD cover.
