Film DVD round-up: Skyfall, Tower Block and Hit & Run

18 February: James Bond is resurrected, Sheridan Smith is targeted and Dax Shepard exposes himself


Skyfall (Cert: 12)
5 stars


Daniel Craig returns in the biggest, Bafta-winning Bond of all

Formats: DVD and Triple Play (Blu-ray, DVD and digital copy)

Extras: The DVD includes four featurettes covering various aspects of the production with contributions from the cast and crew – but at 12 minutes, it’s a bit measly. The Blu-ray pads out this “making-of” doc to a full hour, and it also boasts two feature commentaries (one from director Sam Mendes and another featuring producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli together with production designer Dennis Gassner), plus there’s footage of the movie’s gala premiere at the Royal Albert Hall.
