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.

Adele Skyfall

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.
