Sam Mendes and the Skyfall Cast on the Istanbul Shoot

With the Skyfall crew now in Istanbul, Turkey, this marks the third time in the 50 year history of the James Bond franchise that the city has served as a backdrop to 007’s adventures, with previous outings including From Russia With Love and The World Is Not Enough.

And whilst Daniel Craig has arrived in the city with the cast and crew of Skyfall, Istanbul isn’t the only Turkish location the team has been visiting; further filming locations include Adana and the coastal city of Fethiye.

To mark the occasion, a photocall and press conference was held today with producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, director Sam Mendes, and cast members Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Marlohe, and Ola Rapace. You can watch a highlight video below:
