Heineken Forges Partnership With James Bond For ‘Skyfall’ Promotions

HEINEKEN today announced that it has extended its 15 year partnership with the James Bond franchise. The company introduced an unprecedented and innovative global marketing campaign to support the launch of the new film SKYFALL. This is the 23rd film in the James Bond series, and the sixth consecutive James Bond film that the Heineken® brand has been involved with.

“The trust that we have built has allowed us to take the partnership to a new level by linking SKYFALL directly with our award winning global ‘Open Your World’ campaign. We are confident our activation plan will ignite the conversation with our consumers and film viewers.”

Heineken® brand’s global SKYFALL marketing program will include a wide range of promotion and activation rights in and around the film, including, for the first time, the participation of James Bond actor, Daniel Craig, in the brand’s worldwide campaign. It will also leverage its global relationships with Facebook and Google to ignite digital conversations about SKYFALL amongst its adult consumers.

2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the Bond franchise, which is generating enormous levels of consumer interest in SKYFALL. It is one of the most anticipated and talked about films this year, providing Heineken® with the opportunity to really engage consumers. The campaign will be accessible in more than 170 countries around the world where Heineken® can be enjoyed.

“When two great brands like Heineken® and James Bond join together, excitement is guaranteed. We are proud of our long standing partnership,” said Alexis Nasard, Chief Commercial Officer, HEINEKEN. “The trust that we have built has allowed us to take the partnership to a new level by linking SKYFALL directly with our award winning global ‘Open Your World’ campaign. We are confident our activation plan will ignite the conversation with our consumers and film viewers.”

“The level of collaboration with Heineken® is unprecedented,” added SKYFALL producers, Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. “We are excited by the global reach and the creativity that the Heineken team is able to deliver.”

HEINEKEN will launch its marketing campaign to support the Heineken partnership with James Bond in September 2012. The brand will focus its efforts on creating new levels of excitement for the film in on-premise establishments and retail stores across multiple markets.

Rooney Mara Scores Lead Role In David Fincher’s ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’

Rooney Mara Scores Lead Role In David Fincher’s ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’

Rooney Mara

Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara have been cast in the lead roles of Columbia Pictures’ three-picture adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s literary blockbuster The Millennium Trilogy under the direction of David Fincher. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – the first film of the series, which also includes The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest – begins shooting next month in Sweden. The screenplay is written by Steve Zaillian and the film is being produced by Scott Rudin, Cean Chaffin, Ole Sondberg and Søren Stærmose. Mikael Wallen and Anni Fernandez are executive producers.

The Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson has been published in 44 countries and has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide thus far. In the U.S. alone, the series has sold over 10 million copies, and the sales were recently calculated at the remarkable rate of one book per second. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has broken sales records in virtually every country in which it has been published. It has sold over 5 million copies in the U.S. and has out-sold any other e-book in that rapidly expanding market. A literary phenomenon, all three books currently sit atop the New York Times Best Seller lists. In describing the scale of Larsson’s achievement, The Economist said: “Stieg Larsson’s vivid characters, the depth of the detail across the three books, the powerfully imaginative plot, and the sheer verve of the writing make the trilogy a masterpiece of its genre.” Michiko Kakutani, of The New York Times, described the Lisbeth character: “Lisbeth Salander, Stieg Larsson’s fierce pixie of a heroine, is one of the most original characters in a thriller to come along in a while – a gamin, Audrey Hepburn look-alike but with tattoos and piercings, the take-no-prisoners attitude of Lara Croft and the cool, unsentimental intellect of Mr. Spock. She is the vulnerable victim turned vigilante; a willfully antisocial girl . . . who has proved herself to be as incandescently proficient as any video game warrior.” The three novels have all become #1 worldwide bestsellers, an achievement unrivaled in trade book publishing.

DAVID FINCHER most recently directed this fall’s much-anticipated The Social Network for Columbia Pictures, which opens in the U.S. on October 1st.

DANIEL CRAIG recently starred in the two highest-grossing films in the James Bond franchise, Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale. His earlier film roles include Munich, Enduring Love, Layer Cake, The Mother, Road to Perdition, and Some Voices. He has also recently completed filming on Jim Sheridan’s Dream House, Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, and Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens.

ROONEY MARA will appear this fall in David Fincher’s The Social Network.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is set for worldwide release December 21, 2011.
