Watch: Designer Daniel Kleinman's Superb 'Skyfall' Opening Credits

The opening credit sequence is a Bond tradition that spans the entire franchise, even though in the Daniel Craig era they haven't been all that memorable. But it is another check of approval to Sam Mendes' fantastic “Skyfall” that the element returns with such success, and now one that is available to watch online as well.

Daniel Craig Skyfall

The opening credit sequence is a Bond tradition that spans the entire franchise, even though in the Daniel Craig era they haven't been all that memorable. But it is another check of approval to Sam Mendes' fantastic “Skyfall” that the element returns with such success, and now one that is available to watch online as well.

Keeping dutifully in line with the extended sequences at the top of each Bond picture, commercial director and designer Daniel Kleinman has made his work (via Slashfilm) on the latest 007 entry available for all to view. This newest effort, accompanied by Adele's titular theme tune and featuring a woozy blend of aquatic weaponry and women, represents his triumphant return to the series after having completed the honor since “GoldenEye,” and then being replaced by design house MK12 for “Quantum of Solace.”

While that entry remains perfectly capable in its desert-set scope and Jack White theme, “Skyfall” proves a warm return for Kleinman and his work, and also a major highlight in one of the most well received Bond entries in recent history. Check the clip out below, and of course, “Skyfall” is in theatres now.
