Daniel Craig is nothing if not a dapper James Bond. Check out the latest video blog for the 23rd Bond film, "Skyfall," in which costume designer Jany Temime describes the necessity for 007 suits that fit Craig "near his body," while remaining "very supple, and move with him." Temime worked with fashion designer Tom Ford to create the crisp, light grey suits Craig wears throughout the film. Temime understands the importance of making sure these suits look good -- "Daniel does have a great body." Watch below.

This year's November 9 release of "Skyfall" coincides with the 50th anniversary of the 007 franchise, which began with "Dr. No" in 1962. A number of anniversary events have already gotten underway, including Bond beach screenings at the Cannes Film Festival 2012, and TOH's own Bond expert Bill Desowitz's book "James Bond Unmasked," chronicling the 50-year evolution of the series, and featuring interviews with all six Bond actors. Starting June 8, the American Cinematheque in Los Angeles is screening all 22 Bond films on 35mm prints at both the Egyptian and Aero Theatres, with Desowitz doing book signings at two of the double features. (Here's a book excerpt.)

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and Loyola Marymount School of Film and Television are also mounting "Is James Bond," the first exhibition to feature the complete opening credit sequences from Eon's twenty-two Bond films.  “Beginning with 'Dr. No,' the opening credits, created by Maurice Binder, have functioned as pieces of art that comment on the films, while remaining separate from them,” says Elvis Mitchell, programmer for Film Independent at LACMA. “The Bond title sequences are a unique and groundbreaking exercise of cinema calculated to resonate as discrete pieces that in no way further the story, but immerse us in the sensibility of 007, filmmaking as daring as the title character.”

The exhibition will be displayed in the Art of the Americas Building at LACMA on 40-inch monitors. Audio for each sequence is available via headset, and the full set of sequences are also looped and projected with audio in a large format with sound on one wall of the gallery. LACMA, in partnership with Film Independent, will also
screen James Bond double features every Thursday in July and September.

And during "Bond Month," Encore will feature James Bond classics nightly, uncut and commercial-free throughout July.  The month-long celebration of 007 begins with an all-day marathon Sunday, July 1 at 7:00 with "Dr. No," and ends with "Never Say Never Again" at 4:15 am on July 2. The roster of Bonds appearing in the set include Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, and Pierce Brosnan.  Two former "Bond Girls," Olga Kurylenko ("Quantum of Solace") and Eva Green ("Casino Royale," "Dark Shadows") will appear in featurettes throughout the month-long festival.
