Adele Confirmed to Perform SKYFALL Theme Song; New Posters and Banners Released

     September 14, 2012


It has been rumored for months that Grammy-winning artist Adele would perform the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall.  Today, Showbiz411 confirms she has the gig, and the song will probably be called “Skyfall” (as opposed to “Another Way to Die” being the song from Quantum of Solace).  Adele will likely write the song as well.  It will be the English singer-songwriter’s first single since her last album, 21.  I’m curious to see where her song will rank among Bond themes.  Probably higher than “Die Another Day”.

In other Skyfall news, new posters and banners have been released for the film, and you can check them out after the jump.  Skyfall opens October 26th in the UK, November 9th in the US, and stars Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Berenice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Ralph Fiennes.

Here’s the official synopsis for Skyfall:

Daniel Craig is back as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M 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.

    “Today, Showbiz411 confirms she has the gig…”
    Based on what?

    • Clark Griswold

      Yeah, exactly. Who is/are Showbiz411? All kinds of entertainment sites have been speculating about Adele for months now. The showbiz411 article even begins “I think I can confirm…”. Not exactly a 100% definite confirmation there. I wouldn’t start cheering (or booing) until you see the official press statement from EON.

    Awesome! I’m no fan of hers but I like her singing. Also, the “editor” of this article is really annoying.

    To all the haters out there; regardless of your fat jokes (seriously, she’s not even fat), Adele is still the best choice out of all the current the British singers of her age group at this point in time. This is wonderful news and I cannot wait to hear it.
