First Official Trailer for New James Bond Film Released
Bond is back. James Bond. Sony Pictures has released the first full trailer for upcoming James Bond film “Skyfall.”
The twenty-third film in the series, “Skyfall” finds Bond “experiencing a combination of lassitude, boredom, depression [and] difficulty with what he’s chosen to do for a living,” according to star Daniel Craig. Because hooking up with beautiful women and driving sports cars is so awful.
The trailer is pretty much devoid of exposition and doesn’t offer any inkling as to what the film’s about. It does, however offer some pretty cool shots (including what looks like a subway car barreling through a wall.) All in all, it’s mainly just a teaser to get fans interested.
“Skyfall” is set for release in the US on November 9, exactly two weeks after its UK release (those lucky Brits.) The film marks Craig’s third appearance as 007 (he played the role in 2006 reboot “Casino Royale” and 2008’s “Quantum of Solace.”) Craig’s costars include villain Javier Bardem (you might know him as that insane killer guy in “No Country for Old Men”) and Bérénice Marlohe as new Bond girl Severine.
“Skyfall,” actually coincides with a year-long 50th anniversary celebration of the series. “Dr. No,” the first film in the series, came out in 1962.
Now that Daniel Craig’s done battling extraterrestrials (“Cowboys and Aliens”) and voicing animated characters (“The Adventures of Tintin”), we’ll finally get to see him kick ass again as the world’s all-time favorite secret agent. Even better, you’ll get to see him play Bond again: he’s signed on for the 24th film.
