Event alert: Spy Vibers in the London area have a chance to see a special screening of Skyfall next October at the Royal Albert Hall with live symphony score! From the press release: "Skyfall will be screened for the first time with the score performed live by a full symphony orchestra at the Hall next autumn. Film Concerts Live! is proud to present the World Premiere of Skyfall in Concert, the second instalment in the James Bond Concert Series, produced in association with EON Productions and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios (MGM). Daniel Craig returns as the legendary secret agent in the franchise’s most successful film to date. Now you will be able to experience composer Thomas Newman’s BAFTA-winning original score performed live by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra in sync to the picture! Directed by Sam Mendes, Skyfall pits 007 against one of his most formidable foes… the ruthless cyberterrorist and former MI6 agent Silva (Javier Bardem). The action begins when a hard drive containing the identities of every undercover British agent is stolen. Bond’s mission to recover the stolen drive takes him from a thrilling chase across the rooftops of Istanbul to the violent underworld of Macau, and ultimately to the streets of London and the very heart of MI6 itself. As the stakes grow higher, his pursuit of the villainous Silva leads to an epic showdown at Skyfall Lodge, Bond’s remote family estate in the Scottish highlands. Judi Dench returns once again as the steadfast M, and Skyfall introduces two familiar and beloved Bond characters: the ingenious quartermaster Q (Ben Whishaw), and the charming and resourceful Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris)." General ticket sales will open on Friday November 30th. Concerts are on October 4th and 5th, 2019. More info here. Made during the 50th anniversary celebrations of the cinematic 007 series, Skyfall was beautifully crafted from script to design to sound. My review of Skyfall here. Don't miss this special event if you are in London! Spy Vibers, please check out my new book (over 700 pages!) about one of America's great cartoonists. On other creative fronts, folks might not know that I began exhibiting as a fine art photographer in the late 1980s. I haven't shared that part of my life here, but readers might like to see some of my work on Instagram. Enjoy!
