Home Uncategorized James Bond NY Premiere Postponed til Monday

Not even James Bond can overcome the ravages of Hurricane Sandy. The big premiere of “Skyfall,” the 23rd James Bond movie, has been postponed until Monday November 5th. The premiere is a fundraiser for the Tribeca Film Institute and expected to be a boon for the organization.

But Sony couldn’t all the talent in from London–Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Sam Mendes, et al– plus even though the Ziegfeld and Museum of Modern Art are uptown, New York is still in a state of disarray concerning transportation.

On the upside, the “Skyfall” premiere conflicted with Jessica Chastain’s opening Thursday night on Broadway in “The Heiress.” Now the “Skyfall” audience will only have to worry about not partying too late–they have to vote the next morning.

Meantime, Tribeca Films is getting ready to release “Struck by Lightning” next month. The comedy, directed by Brian Dannelly and written by young Chris Colfer from “Glee,” is a must-see this fall. It’s very much the “Little Miss Sunshine” of this season.
