New Bond film Skyfall gets royal red carpet premiere
LONDON (AFP) - Daniel Craig thrilled James Bond fans in London on Tuesday when he stepped onto the red carpet with co-stars Judi Dench and Javier Bardem for the world premiere of the 23rd Bond film Skyfall.
Craig, making his third outing as Bond, said it had been a "real honour" to play the role in the franchise's 50th anniversary year, as he swept past a giant 007 logo and the secret agent's favourite Aston Martin.
The rugged Craig stars with Dench, again playing his controller 'M', and Spaniard Bardem as the spy's latest nemesis Raoul Silva.
Heir to the British throne Prince Charles attended the screening, which fittingly took place amid the regal splendour of the Royal Albert Hall.
