Sam Mendes, the director of new James Bond film 'Skyfall' has promised fans an "epic" movie when it hits screens later this month.
The Oscar-winning director said Daniel Craig's 007 would be a "three-dimensional" character and hinted the film could almost match classic Bond 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service', which at 142 minutes is the longest Bond film yet.
He told Total Film: "As the movie progresses, it gets more epic."
"I loved the scale of it. I think there is a possibility that I put everything I've ever wanted to put in a Bond movie into this movie."

Way to get us excited Sam! The director, once married to Kate Winslet, has been pretty coy about his foray into Bond. Although back in August Sam did give his thoughts on the baddie of 'Skyfall'- Silva played by fellow Oscar winner Javier Bardem. Talking to Empire, Mendes revealed:
"[Silva] is larger than life in one respect but full of surprises - never entirely, at any given moment, exactly what you think it is. Javier takes some risks,"
"But he's an amazing actor and I think he gives you something you may consider to have been absent from Bond movies for a long time.”
The publicity for Bond steps up a gear this week as Adele's much anticipated theme song receives it's radio debut at 0:07 tomorrow morning (October 5). It is just one of a series of events tomorrow - which has been dubbed Global James Bond Day - to mark the 50th anniversary of Bond's film debut.
Fans were given a teaser of the theme track when a 90-second clip was leaked on the Soundcloud website earlier this week but it was removed within hours.
