007 ‘Skyfall’ in Concert

Think of the word ‘Skyfall’ and you can almost hear the impassioned sound of violins in Thomas Newman’s Academy Award-winning score in this thrilling installment of the James Bond franchise.
Lose yourself in the soundtrack played live by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra as you watch the action on the big screen at Tokyo International Forum. The film, which is Daniel Craig’s third time playing the titular character, centres on a standoff between Bond and former MI6 agent Javier Bardem (Raoul Silva) as he plots to kill the Head of the Secret Intelligence Service played by Dame Judy Dench.
Sam Mendes’ take on the Bond series is a grittier one compared to the previous installments about the womanising spy, but Craig’s stoic persona and budget-breaking explosions are just the kind of spectacle that deserves its own live orchestra.
