Greg Williams/Eon Productions via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — This year marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond movie franchise.  So it’s no surprise that the latest film in the series, Skyfall, set out to pay homage to its predecessors.

Daniel Craig, who returns as 007, says, “It’s 50 years and we need to mark it and to make the best Bond movie we possibly could and to introduce and reintroduce and introduce some new ideas and to celebrate it a little bit.”

“I would be lying if I said we weren’t influenced by Goldfinger for sure,” he continued.

Skyfall, the 23rd Bond film, opens this Friday.
