“007 – Skyfall” is the third film selected for James Bond Month on the Hollywood Channel. Here Bond’s loyalty to M – the head of MI6, played by Judi Dench – is put to the test when she is haunted by her past. When MI6 is under attack, 007 must find and destroy the threat at all costs.
The last film broadcast will be “007 Specter”. “A hidden message from Bond’s past leads him on the trail of a sinister organization. As M faces a political battle to keep the intelligence community active, Bond will do whatever it takes to reveal the terrible truth that lies behind Specter, ”the synopsis reads.
