As we reported back in February, the new James Bond film Skyfall will be the first movie in the franchise to be released in IMAX. Today, the official 007 Twitter feed has announced that the U.S. IMAX release will be on November 8th, one day earlier than the general release for the upcoming action flick. Granted, it’s not like the big jump Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol had on its IMAX release, but it will still draw out the Bond diehards to shell out a little more money to see the flick a day early. Of course if American fans really love Bond, they could always hop the Atlantic to see the movie open in the U.K. on October 26th.
