Every James Bond film is filled with certain expectations. From watching the suave spy take down the bad guys and bed gorgeous Bond Girls to the iconic theme song and catch phrases. Ever since Shirley Bassey belted out the opening credits theme song for Goldfinger, various musicians have been performing title songs for subsequent Bond films. Duran Duran sang on A View to a Kill, Nancy Sinatra opened You Only Live Twice, Paul McCartney sang for Live or Let Die and Tina Turner performed on GoldenEye.
Now Adele is the latest musician to go down in Bond lore as the British singer will be sing the theme song for the upcoming Bond film, Skyfall. Rumors had been swirling for quite some time that the 24-year-old singer would be performing on the Bond flick. Her soulful voice should lend a departure from recent pop music renditions from Garbage (The World is Not Enough), Madonna (Die Another Day) and most recently Chris Cornell for Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.
Additionally, a new poster was revealed yesterday and the James Bond Facebook page has been swapping around banners all week. Here are two featuring Ralph Fiennes and Berenice Marlohe.
Skyfall opens November 9.
