AN ICON COMES HOME: The World Premiere of Skyfall marked the culmination of a year of celebrations to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of James Bond in the cinema. It is particularly fitting that the premiere took place in London - a city featured heavily in Skyfall - and which has been host to a year-long series of iconic events, from the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations to the Olympic Games... which featured 007 in the opening ceremony!
