One of this fall/winter’s more anticipated films for action junkies is the new James Bond movie, Skyfall. This time around, Bond’s 23rd to be exact, the titular agent is tasked with protecting M and looking cool while doing it. He may also get to slip in a quick shower or two with an attractive woman between all the shooting, running and falling out of things. The official synopsis is here:
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.”
Sam Mendes directs Daniel Craig in his third go round as Bond, and they’re joined by Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw.
Check below for the new Skyfall teaser that aired during last night’s Olympic Games opening ceremonies. It was a nice pairing with the Bond-themed video featuring Craig escorting the Queen to the games by helicopter before the duo skydived down to join the masses.
Nobody sticks a landing like Bond.
As one of the few people apparently who really enjoyed both Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace (what can I say, I’m a sucker for Olga) this teaser is all I need to get pumped for Bond’s latest adventure. The action looks spectacular, and Craig once again makes for the most believably capable Bond of the entire series. There’s been some question as to what exactly Mendes would or could deliver, but if this teaser is any indication we’re in for another fantastically combustive ride.
Skyfall opens November 9th.
