Empire Online has published a video interview with Sam Mendes in which he talks about the gunbarrel and how he had originally planned to start Skyfall. However, he says that when he put it there it “looked ridiculous” because of the opening shot, which is reminiscent of the gunbarrel. He also says the the gunbarrel at the start is almost the best bit of the Bond films and likens it to Christmas Eve (see what we say about why the gunbarrel should be at the start here).
He is also asked whether he would like to direct another James Bond film and who he would like to direct Bond 24. Watch the video to hear what he says and leave any comments below.
