Trivia: When Bond confronts Patrice in the building, originally Bond was going to walk into the scene wearing cool leather gloves. But during the editing stage, a crew member pointed out that Bond's gun would only operate when his fingerprints were in contact with it, meaning the gloves wouldn't let him shoot during the scene. An extra $1 million was spent digitally removing the gloves from Daniel Craig's hands.

Trivia: The title song "Skyfall" was the first James Bond theme to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song, and was the first to earn an Oscar nomination since the song for 1981's "For Your Eyes Only".
