“Some men are coming to kill us. We’re going to kill them first.” And it seems that just for starters.
The first trailer for the upcoming 23rd James Bond adventure, Skyfall, was unleashed on the interwebs this morning, and damn does it look badass. Let’s roll the tape:
Skyfall, directed by Academy Award winning director Sam Mendes (American Beauty), is Daniel Craig’s third turn as Britain’s greatest super spy following 2006’s Casino Royale and 2008’s Quantum of Solace. The plot centers around: “Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.” Naturally, the film will take place in locales across the globe from London to Singapore to Istanbul
Skyfall also features the return of Judi Dench as Bond’s boss M, as well as new characters played by Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes and Helen McCroy. Naomie Harris and Bérénice Marlohe are the Bond girls, Javier Bardem is the villain, and Ben Whishaw will play Bond’s gadget man Q, the first time the character’s made an appearance in the Craig films, and the first time the character’s been played by an actor younger than geriatric.
Skyfall will be released in North America on November 9.
