Skyfall was easily the best James Bond movie of the modern era, and the $1.1 billion it raked in globally certainly supports that notion. Now, after what has seemed like a painfully long wait despite the fact that Skyfall premiered just two years ago, the film’s sequel finally has a name, a cast, and a release date.
