A new videoblog for Skyfall has landed online, and this time the Bond girls are the focus. Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe play two very different female characters in director Sam Mendes’ entry in the franchise, but both actresses are aware of how the female role in the Bond films has changed over the years. Harris notes that it’s “not enough just to look pretty anymore,” and her field agent can more than hold her own. Marlohe, on the other hand, describes her character as a femme fatale with a great deal of complexity. It’s been nice to see the series evolve from its chauvinistic roots, and I’m eager to see what Harris and Marlohe bring to the table.
Hit the jump to watch the videoblog. The film also stars Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Ben Whishaw, Javier Bardem, and Ralph Fiennes. Skyfall opens on November 9th.
Here’s the synopsis for Skyfall:
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.
