Istanbul Skyfall Location Video Blog

Mendes and Craig talk Turkey

Back in February Sam Mendes unveiled his first Skyfall video blog. Since then, the web's seen dozens more, touching on everything from production design to the Aston Martin, and today there's another out there – one that concerns Turkey.

Revealing that Istanbul and its environs play host to the ill-fated mission mentioned in the trailer that goes so very awry – and so sets into motion Silva's plans to capitalise on MI6 and M's weakness – it's the location that will kick off Bond 23, providing plenty of the train jumping, car chasing and gun shooting funtimes you've been waiting nearly four years for.

So for behind the scenes footage of markets getting trashed and trains nearly getting crashed, click play on the video below.
