James Bond 007 to open London Olympics

James Bond star Daniel Craig is to open the London 2012 Olympic Games ceremony after a personal invitation from Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen asked Craig into Buckingham Palace to film spectacular scenes as 007 for London's sporting extravaganza.

In the film, he arrives by Royal Appointment to be told his latest mission is to launch the Games.

Her Majesty may even make a cameo appearance but the Palace is keeping details a secret.

A billion people watching on TV around the world will see Bond getting his instructions before he is taken by helicopter to parachute into the Olympic stadium in Stratford, East London.

Craig, 44, and a film crew headed by "Trainspotting" director Danny Boyle were given unprecedented access to the queen's private rooms Tuesday.

They also shot helicopter and parachuting scenes.

Boyle, creative director of the opening ceremony, has chosen to make MI6 agent Bond a key part of the spectacle which will kick-start the Olympics.

The queen, who is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this year, had to personally sanction the move -- which will give a glimpse inside the famous landmark.


A source on set said, "It's a huge coup for BBC producers and Danny to be allowed into the Palace and have the Queen involved."

The source added, "They wanted the most iconic British film character inside the building most associated with London and with the monarch -- and they got it. It will be a magical scene for all watching at home and inside the stadium on July 27. Working out the logistics of filming has taken months and hasn't been easy -- but it will be worth it in the end."

Crew members were given strict instructions not to tell any members of the public what they were filming. Cameras and cell phone were banned on the set. The film -- to be fed into the opening ceremony -- was given the name "The Arrival."

This year marks the 50th anniversary of British Bond movies.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said, "Buckingham Palace is involved in a number of filming projects during this special Jubilee year and we would not go into details of any particular project until nearer the time of transmission."

Star will drop into the stadium on a rope ladder as a billion people watch worldwide

It looks like Craig is doing the stuntwork himself this seems to be really exciting as much as waiting for the Skyfall Trailer.......

James Bond star Daniel Craig to open Olympics with a daredevil leap from a helicopter
Star will drop into the stadium on a rope ladder as a billion people watch worldwide

James Bond star Daniel Craig will open the Games ceremony in true 007 style... with a daredevil leap into the Olympic Stadium from a helicopter.

Three choppers will swoop down the Thames and under London Bridge before heading to the Olympic Park in East London.

To the strains of the James Bond theme, Craig will drop into the stadium on a rope ladder as a billion people watch on worldwide.

The nail-biting action will follow a short film by Trainspotting film-maker Danny Boyle, the artistic director of the July 27 opening *ceremony.

In the movie, called The Arrival, Bond visits *Buckingham Palace by Royal Appointment to be told his latest *mission is to launch the Games.

The Queen *personally invited Craig, 44, to take part and is *rumoured to make a cameo appearance.

Boyle was given unprecedented access to the Queen’s private rooms to make the film backin March. But the Palace has kept details under tight wraps.

A source said: “Daniel Craig is determined to open the ceremony with a bang and he and the BBC producers have pulled out all the stops.

“The world will be watching and they are happy to go to any length to make sure the stunts are as thrilling as possible.

“Not only are they giving us Bond, Britain’smost iconic character, but they’re giving ussuspense and drama with the helicopters and the Bond theme tune.

“It will be unmissable.”

Sir Paul said to be closing the Olympic Opening next month

Looks like Sir Paul will be performing at the opening ceremony but said to be closing it out . Either way but with him there it should add to the show.....


The Beatle turned 70 Monday as he prepares to open the London Games next month in what could be his biggest performance since "The Ed Sullivan Show."

http://www.nbcmiami.com/entertainmen...159210395.html

Paul McCartney, as a mere lad of 21, shot to unprecedented – and unsurpassed – stardom with his fellow Beatles via their 1964 debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show" before a then-record 73 million viewers.

As he turns 70 Monday, McCartney is preparing to play to his biggest TV audience ever – one likely to be measured in billions – when he closes the opening ceremonies of the London Games next month.

Welcome to the Olympic Age of Paul McCartney, who, as he starts his eighth decade, is a singing, songwriting, bass-thumping testament to the youthful power of music – and the enduring appeal of the Liverpool band that wowed 'em on “Sullivan” all those years ago.

Best Olympic Bodies More Photos and Videos McCartney has emerged in recent years as the go-to elder-statesman headliner for spectacles, from the Super Bowl to the 25th anniversary of Live Aid to this month's celebration of the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, whose reign probably will be best remembered for a British Invasion of the rock-and-roll variety.

Sure, McCartney is guaranteed to get huge crowds singing along to "Let it Be" and "Hey Jude." But he's far more than a big-occasion nostalgia act. In the last decade, he’s toured more frequently than any time since the Beatles' early days, and has produced some of his strongest (2005's "Chaos and Creation in the Backyard") and most adventurous (2008's "Electric Arguments" as The Fireman) solo albums.

When he takes the stage July 27 in front of 80,000 at London’s Olympic Stadium and many more watching on TV and online around the world (the 2008 Olympic opening ceremonies drew 2 billion viewers), McCartney will be representing a rock-fueled rebellion against the boundaries of age. He'll be representing his country, which helped create a youth-driven cultural revolution by putting a British spin on American rhythm and blues. Perhaps most importantly, he'll be representing his fellow Beatles, who debuted "All You Need is Love" 45 years ago this month before a then-astounding worldwide audience of 350 million.

The sentiment, like the group’s music, is timeless. The Beatles “1” collection is the world’s biggest-selling album of this century, with most copies likely purchased by those who weren’t born when the band broke up in 1970. As we’ve noted, a Pew Research Center survey conducted in 2009 found the Beatles were among the top four favorite musical acts of Americans 16 to 64.

It’s a good bet some of McCartney’s fellow septuagenarians – and kids under 16 – are among the fans, too. Perhaps more of all ages will join those ranks after he plays for the world at the Olympics.

Declaring the Olympic gig a crowning achievement for McCartney, nearly a half-century after the Beatles first charted in the UK with “Love Me Do,” might sell him short. After all, naysayers back in the day crowed that the group could only go downhill after their “Sullivan” splash. If history is any guide, Paul McCartney’s Olympic Age will prove an ageless affair in which the road is long, winding – and filled with more surprises and triumphs.

Behind the scenes of James Bond Royal Dive with Queen during London

One of the sequences in the London 2012 opening ceremony involved a surprise appearance from the Queen, who appeared to parachute into the event with James Bond.

Gary Connery was the stunt double who jumped out of a helicopter in the guise of the monarch before a crowd of thousands
