The billion-dollar Bond is heading home.
"Skyfall," Daniel Craig's third round as Agent 007 -- and the first movie in the half-century-old franchise to gross $1 billion internationally in its original theatrical release -- is set to make its DVD, Blu-ray and On Demand debut Tuesday, Feb. 12. Digital platforms including Amazon and iTunes will begin offering it one week earlier.
The timing may be auspicious in terms of this year's Academy Awards. The generally praised "Skyfall" is up for five Oscars, including best cinematography (for which Roger Deakins earned bountiful kudos), best original score (by Bond first-timer Thomas Newman) and best original song, with Adele scheduled to perform the title tune live for the first time when ABC airs the Oscar-cast Sunday, Feb. 24.
