VIDEO: SKYFALL Opening Title Sequence Released

VIDEO: SKYFALL Opening Title Sequence Released

I may not be a huge Bond fan, but I have always loved those surreal opening credits, and I think this one is my favorite yet. Check out Daniel Kleinman's awesome opening titles to Sam Mendes' 23rd James Bond flick, featuring the equally impressive theme-song from Adele..

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

Skyfall is out now, and if you haven't seen it yet I recommend you do - it's almost as good as everyone says it is!

Finally brought the naked ladies back.

Great opening! Easily Skyfall is the best Bond film of all time!

funny how it gives away every scene of the movie. i thought it was the weakest of the new bond movies. i would have rather a proper ending for the group Quantum

@SteveRogerSon I'm only 12 and I don't think it's as good as people have said.
It kind of ruined the whole concept to me. My favorite Bond movie's such as Goldfinger are in my top 5 best Bond flicks, whereas Skyfall doesn't even reach my top 15!

Hmm some very nice shots but as a whole felt very low on energy for a Bond opening...

Best Bond Opening for sure.

My favorite Bond Opening and Movie EVER!!!!!!

I'm not the one to always say the newest movie is the best, but this just may be the best Bond yet!

not the biggest bond fan

the beginning to and opening title sequence to casino royale blew me away

skyfall was good, but it left me with an itch that i thought was gonna be scratched at some point

Everyone saying that the Quantum plot needed to be tied up needs to recall the fact that SPECTRE weaved in and out of the Connery movies. The same can be done with Quantum. Think of Goldfinger amidst the other Connery films. After the events of QoS it makes sense that Quantum would lie low for a while.

Skyfall was a great Bond film that deviated from the the previous two entries in many respects. That being said, I think it did so quite successfully. Was it perfect? No. But it did feel very similar to some of Connery era fims, and I really enjoyed that.

This is my favorite Bond intro for sure. Goldeneye and Die Another Day weren't bad either. I was always partial to the opening of You Only Live Twice.

Oh, yeeeessssssss.

Casino Royale still has the best opening for me cause it was just so creative, this one just threw random imagery at the screen that pertained to the film it felt lazy, overall great film though loved it.
Jolt17 - 11/14/2012, 7:09 PM
I still can't decide between this, or Casino Royale - both are tied as my favorite Bond openings, I guess! The latter has more plus points for the awesome gun barrel(-ish) transition, though.

Cool visuals I'm just not digging the song.
mgeoff88 - 11/14/2012, 9:10 PM
That was so much better than the QOS opening! Their was a lot of creativity in this.

Definitely more akin to the opening titles of the older Bond films.

To all the people complaining about the song and the opening title to Skyfall, to me this was way better then Casino Royale's opening title sequence; But hey that's just me. I love Adele's voice in this, and I don't even listen to her music or care for it; to me it is reminiscent to the classic James Bond Opening title songs, and I also liked how obscure and dramatic the visual were mixed with a bit of original James bond glare to it.

So yeah. I prefer this opening title then the Casino Royale one any day.

Loved this opening !!

Great opening to what may be my favorite Bond movie ever. I'd have to go back and re-watch some of the old Connery ones to say for sure.
