Press Release – Variety – The Children’s Charity
Next Wednesday, 7 November, Variety – The Children’s Charity – will host the New Zealand premiere of the latest installment of the 007 franchise, Bond Skyfall.
Critics have declared the 23rd Bond film to be one of the finest, if not the best, in the suave British spy’s 50 years on the screen. The Daily Mail’s 5 star review not only said it was the best Bond movie yet but “it’s up there with the top action-adventures of all time”, and The Guardian called it “a hugely enjoyable action spectacular”.
Daniel Craig returns as the legendary James Bond 007 in Skyfall where Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As M16 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
Together with international Bond partners Bollinger, Heineken and Aston Martin, Variety is providing an exclusive opportunity for people to be the first in the country to view BOND Skyfall. All proceeds will go to Variety – The Children’s Charity. Tickets to the New Zealand premiere are priced at $75 per person (inc.

Guests will rub shoulders with a host of New Zealand celebrities and will also enjoy special Bond themed entertainment.
