007 drinks beer in "Skyfall"? Author of James Bond Drinks book tells why it doesn't matter, offers book for free until November 7
There are just a few days left now before the long awaited US release of "Skyfall" on Friday November 9, or at IMAX theaters from Thursday and excitement is building among cinemagoers. However, earlier in the year there was uproar when it was announced that in "Skyfall" 007 would drink Heineken thanks to a multi-million dollar product placement deal with the Dutch brewer, with many Bond fans up in arms about him ditching vodka martinis.
However, David Leigh who runs popular website The James Bond Dossier says that fears that 007 would drop his trademark vodka martinis in favor of beer were always overdone, and that James Bond has consumed a wide variety of beverages from the start, in both in his literary and cinematic incarnations.
David says, 'if you go back to the books you'll find Bond drinking beer several times, and he has always been about more than just than martinis and champagne. I don't want to spoil "Skyfall" for anyone, but most moviegoers probably won't even notice the product placement anyway. And rest assured, "Skyfall" does see him served a martini while he's at a casino."
David has recently updated "The Complete Guide to the Drinks of James Bond", which really goes into James Bond's drinks in detail. After attending the Royal World Premiere in London he has updated the book to include the drinks from "Skyfall", and is offering it for free until November 7, which he anticipates will be downloaded hundreds, if not thousands, of times.
"Skyfall" sees Daniel Craig don his famous tuxedo for the third time in a hugely anticipated movie that has drawn universal praise from critics and audiences in Europe. The movie is almost certain to become the biggest Bond movie upon its release to American audiences.
For more information on the free book promotion please contact David Leigh by email or phone. He is also available for interviews on any aspect of the 007 books or movies.
