New Bond set details may explain what Skyfall means

It appears that the title SKYFALL may be literal. SlashFilm has posted a very detailed set visit which reveals many details about the upcoming twenty-third Bond movie. These details are minor spoilers, so consider this your warning.

The set visit centered on a particularly important set piece to the film which they explain to be the culmination of a chase scene through and beneath London, the villain Silva, played by Javier Bardem, causes an explosion in a catacomb chamber underneath a London tube station, and a train comes crashing down on Bond’s head.

That sounds pretty awesome, but part of me hopes that is not what SKYFALL literally means.  I am hoping for it to be some GoldenEye-esque code for a much more sinister item/operation.

The article goes on to explain some of the complex sets being used in the new film: One was being put up, the other struck. The new set was a three-tier casino that in the film will be set in Macau. There is a large water tank on the outskirts of Pinewood, with a large blue screen at one end. That tank, decorated with two very large floating dragon heads, was used to shoot parts of the water-based approach to the casino. Metalwork imported from China was being added to decorate the deep burgundy walkways and carved wooden dragons that surround a central gambling area. Gold accents provided definition to the set, which was also fitted with a fighting pit over which crossed walkway allow a great view for onlookers.

It is also mentioned that Javier Bardem's blonde look may be a disguise his character is wearing, which I assumed it was.  I have a good deal of faith in Sam Mendes and cinematographer Roger Deakins to make this film look amazing.  So far, I have only heard things to make me raise expectations.

SKYFALL opens November 9th.

Oh, so it's Skyfog and not Skyfall? And the villain uses low cloud technology to suffocate his enemies?

All jokes aside, that is one slick pic of Bond. And I can not wait to see this movie.

It's Skyfall Lodge -- Bond's family estate. The plot has something to do with the murder of his parents. Some sort of conspiracy that is linked to M and Silva (Bardem).

A little bit grasping at straws, Alex... but whatever, I'm hyped!

Everything I've heard and seen about this Bond flick sounds bad-ass. Gosh, I'm DYING to see the trailer alone. How sad is that!

Skyfall

I read an article Commanderbond.net i believe, that Skyfall is the name of an Estate in Bonds family that he takes M to at some point in the film.

The Bond films always have the best titles. It could be the name of the gum he chews and Skyfall would still be a badass name

SIK

:) did they say explosions and trains falling down? I'm in. So wait does this mean like skyfall is some weapon that makes things lose their gravity or is just a storm I hope it's the latter!
