The highest-grossing Bond film in history, Skyfall finds Daniel Craig in his third outing as Britain's best as the franchise celebrates its 50-year big-screen history. Director Sam Mendes transforms cinema's unflappable super spy into a flawed character who is still hugely capable of handling any intense situation as needed, even if he needs to die and be reborn to get the job done. And the filmmakers give the fans what they want with a brand-new Q, one of the most devilish Bond villains yet (Javier Bardem oozes creepy), and the return of 007's beloved Aston Martin DB5, complete with ejector seat. Special features include director commentary, a front seat at the Skyfall world premiere in London and behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the film.
