Adele Performing 'Skyfall' Theme Song, New Poster & Banners Arrive

While the producers of "Skyfall" have been pretty good at keeping details tightly guarded, one of the worst kept secrets around the production was who was going be singing the theme song for the movie. Adele had been tipped for months, and being a Brit herself, and coming off a six-Grammy win earlier this year, it would almost be a crime if she didn't do it. And alas, Showbiz 411 confirms she'll be singing the song that we presume she'll be writing as well.

The choices of performers for the songs in Bond flicks have always been a bit all over the map, with folks like a-ha, Lulu, Rita Coolidge, Shirley Bassey, Jack White and Alicia Keys, Carly Simon, and Paul McCartney & Wings all tuning up 007's adventures over the years. But we'd wager that Adele's contribution will fall into the category of songs that will stand up long after the movie comes and goes from cinemas (does anyone even remember that Garbage once did a song?).

Anyway, with the movie now less than two months away before arriving in U.K. cinemas, the marketing rollout continues with a couple more posters and banners for the movie (via SuperHeroHype). Nothing particularly new here -- it's the same images and text we've seen already, just rearranged a bit -- but something to hold you over for now. "Skyfall" hits overseas on October 26th and in the U.S. on November 9th.

    "(does anyone even remember that Garbage once did a song?)." ummm... yes, and "The World is not Enough" was pretty darned good... love that Shirley Manson. Adel is amazing... but after seeing the Heineken commercial, I think The Asteroid Galaxy Tour would be a fun pick...

    If the song is any good Adele may be a lock for the oscar (I me talking about this may be annoying). She is still popular and with most academy members being older her style of music will appeal to them.

    A solid choice.

    Whoa, yeah, Adele seems like a great fit. Can't wait to hear what she comes up with. This has got to be better than Chris Cornell/Garbage/Madonna/Pretty much every Bond song for the last half-dozen movies.

    I bet it's from the perspective of a spurned Bond girl, and it'll be so heartrending we spend the entire movie rooting for Bond to get killed.
