Daniel Craig, Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris and Director Sam Mendes Talk About Filming SKYFALL in Istanbul, Turkey

     April 29, 2012


“You always go back to Fleming because the character Fleming created over a number of novels was incredibly complex.  Some people sometimes forget in the cliche of Bond, which is the international playboy, and someone who’s always untroubled, and almost never breaks a sweat, that actually what Fleming created was a very conflicted character.”

This was part of what Sam Mendes said yesterday afternoon at a press conference in Istanbul, Turkey about Skyfall, where the 23rd James Bond movie is filming.  It’s also where I type these words.  As you can probably guess, I’m here covering the film and in the coming days you can expect a ton of Bond content (thank you Sony for having such a short embargo!).  Until then, hit the jump to see Daniel Craig, Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris and director Sam Mendes talk about being in Istanbul and filming at the Grand Bazaar, an amazing market that dates to the early Ottoman period.

Finally, before watching the video, one of the cool facts to come out of yesterday’s press conference was that it’s 49 years ago to the day they were filming From Russia With Love in Istanbul with Sean Connery.  Again, if you’re a Bond fan, you’re going to be very happy visiting Collider in the coming days.
