Watch director Sam Mendes’ first videoblog from the SKYFALL set

Late tonight in the US, the first videoblog entry from SKYFALL director Sam Mendes debuted on, the official James Bond website. In the all-too-brief 1:30 entry, Mendes describes his own “personal relationship with Bond” which began as a nine-year-old fan of the films. Mendes also describes how CASINO ROYALE reminded him a great deal of the Sean Connery era of Bond films, and the prospect of making such a “big, fabulous, glamorous, escapist movie” and comment on today’s world simultaneously. While short, we can only expect many future entries to follow from Mendes and perhaps others in the cast and crew as the 50th year of Bond leads up to SKYFALL’s release this autumn.
