Is Adele Recording Skyfall Theme?

After getting the chills watching Daniel Craig in a behind-the-scenes Skyfall video yesterday, Movie Fanatic must have Bond on the brain. That could be why we’re putting two and two together to make a prediction: Adele will be the singer scoring the honor of recording the theme to the twenty-third James Bond movie. How did we come to that conclusion?

Skyfall Official LogoThe Grammy winner initially had said she would be taking some time off before heading back into the studio after the phenomenal success of her latest, 21. Then, after the resounding success of that album, she changed her mind… stating she would be recording again very soon. Word has arisen out of the U.K. that she is recording a single that will be released later this year. Skyfall arrives November 9… that’s later this year! And a single with no album scheduled? That sounds like a song for a film. And we know that Bond producers love a female singer to belt out their themes, and who better than Adele?

Let’s go deeper.

Adele was talking to a French radio station, NRJ, and this is what she said about recording new material and when fans can hear it. “I plan on releasing an entirely new song by the end of the year,” she said. “How many other tracks will depend on how fast I wrote the others.”

So, she’s got a song that will be ready at the end of the year. Bond needs a theme… we’re just putting two and two together!

What do you think? Would you like to have Adele sing the next Bond theme?

Titanic 3D Clip: Behind the Restoration

James Cameron’s Titanic is back in theaters and in 3D no less. The story of Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) enchanted an entire generation, making it the highest grossing film of all time (until Cameron’s Avatar came along) and a massive Oscar winner as well. As Titanic 3D has arrived on screens all over the world, Paramount has released a behind the scenes clip entitled Titanic 3D: Restoration. Cameron and his team show off how their original film never had a digital copy. Before even starting the 3D conversion process, his team went through and restored the film to its deserved visual glory.

Ted Trailer: Seth MacFarlane’s Teddy Bear Farce

Seth MacFarlane knows how to skewer our society as good as anyone working today. Evidence of that talent is all over the green band trailer for his live action film Ted. Movie Fanatic premiered the Ted red band trailer earlier this week and whether naughty or nice, these teasers have gotten our interest peaked.

Mark Wahlberg plays a man whose childhood teddy bear is alive and well and still following him around. He walks, talks and is a burly fellow who hasn’t seen a party methodology he didn’t embrace. Issues arise when Wahlberg’s character meets a girl (Mila Kunis). How will Ted the teddy bear take it?

Check out the film when it arrives July 13 to see how that goes!

Skyfall: Go Behind the Scenes with Daniel Craig

“I’ll keep going until they tell me to stop,” Daniel Craig says in a new behind-the-scenes video from the set of the latest James Bond film Skyfall. The BBC tracked down the superspy who talks about making the latest film the best of his personal Bond trilogy.

Skyfall also sports an all-star cast that includes Oscar winner Judi Dench as M, Ralph Fiennes as a mysterious agent aiming for M’s job — perhaps — and Javier Bardem as the icon that is the James Bond villain.

Look for the twenty-third Bond flick on November 9.
