Well, the opening scene is supposed to be set in Istanbul and I think I read somewhere that Shanghai will also appear. But otherwise, you seem to be right.

Oh, and apparently they are going to show Bond's family's home as well (minor spoilers in the link):

Well production has moved to Turkey, and Daniel Craig will be there in April to film. But yes, London is going to be a major location in this film, since it appears (from what we know) that most of the plot revolves around what happens there.

Also, Bond apparently meets the French mademoiselle somewhere....

Where is anyone's guess.

I do like that the finale looks like it might be a twist on the old 'villain's base' trope.

Interesting character names if that is a real casting sheet. Is it me...or did Craig get a haircut?

Yes. You can practically set your watch to it. It looks like it's been done with a ruler.

Probably to contrast with how unkempt he looks in earlier scenes

Not really related to Skyfall and I suspect that it is a fabricated quote but it should interest some of you, if true. Apparently Tom Hardy has said that he'd love to play Bond for Chris Nolan...

Hmm,

I dunno. I like Tom Hardy a lot, he was great in Inception and Tinker Tailor, and I anticipate him being good as Bane.

But...

He is a bit rough and ready, and whilst you could say the same about Craig to an extent, I think he's somewhat more polished. Also, and there's no polite way to put this, but Hardy always comes across as somewhat sleazy. It's an engaging kind of sleaziness but there nontheless and I think he'd be better suited to a Harry Palmer type spy than 007.

As for Nolan...

I think he's a wonderful Director, but as time passes his films are becoming more and more bloated (which seems to happen to every director over time) so I don't know. He did say the snowbound bits in Inception was his homage to Bond, and frankly I found that part of the film strangeley dull.

Much as I'd love the next Bond to be Fassbender, his star is rising way too fast for that, and so I'll go with the next 007 being some bloke we've never heard of.

^ Different strokes/ different folks. I thought that the snowbound scene in Inception was a fantastic OMHSS homage. And IIRC he said that he wanted Batman Begins to be a bit like a Bond movie, with its globe-trotting, epic scope. Appropriate that he should use Ras Al Ghul as the villain, given that Denny O'Neill created him as a response to the villains of the Bond movies of the 1960s and 1970s.

I don't really agree with you about Hardy's sleaziness. Sure, he had a bit of that in Inception but I think he's a total chameleon; compare his character in Inception with that in Bronson. And he's recently essayed a spy twice - in This Means War and Tinker, Tailor... Having said that, I don't think he will be the next 007; I agree, it's likely to be someone we've never heard of or, if we have heard of him, won't have envisaged him as Bond.

The trouble, for me, with that section of the film was that every fucker was wearing white so at times I didn't have a clue who was who!

I probably just haven't seen him in enough stuff, but even when I've thought he was great (which a good proportion of time I have, hell I've even forgiven him for Nemesis) he's never leapt off the screen as a potential Bond the way Fassbender has.

Personally I think he'd make a great 006 style villain though.

Apparently they finished filming at the old mansion and it ended with a bang (spoilers in the photos):
