Kiwi singer Gin Wigmore stars alongside James Bond in a new TV and digital ad campaign for Heineken and the latest 007 film.

The Aucklander wrote the ad’s theme song – Man Like That – and appears on screen singing it inside a speeding train full of mysterious and dangerous-looking people.

The ad, which is part of an ongoing interactive campaign, also features Bond star Daniel Craig and the latest Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe.

Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond adventure, opens in cinemas later this year.

Shot at England’s Shepperton Studios, replica James Bond film props were used throughout the mini-film as a tribute to the franchise.

Eagle-eyed viewers will also spot the Spectre ring from Dr. No, the Zorin Industries and Spectre logos and the Faberge Egg used in From Russia with Love and Goldeneye.

Wigmore is currently in the running for best worldwide act at MTV’s Europe music awards.

James Bond studios makes £3.9m loss

1 Mar

 Pinewood Shepperton studios slumped to a £3.9m loss in 2011 after it failed in an attempt to build replicas of Paris, New York and Amsterdam on green belt land.

The studios enjoyed record revenues of £50.7m in 2011, up by 17 per cent after it filmed scenes for movies such as The Hobbit and the next James Bond film, Skyfall. But it took an exceptional charge of £7.1m reflecting five years of costs for its ”Project Pinewood” application, which officials turned down in January. This pushed the company, which is majority owned by the property group Peel Holdings, £3.9m into the red, after profits of £5.8m the previous year.
