Finally caved in and bought this revised edition, too, just for the SKYFALL chapter - and it already starts with two tidbits that surprised me:
- Newman was the first to approach Mendes, wishing to work on SKYFALL - not the other way round.
- Mendes did take a courtesy meeting with David Arnold before choosing to continue his collaboration with Newman.
