Any spy who is worth their salt has, of course, faked their death only to return later and put a serious hurting on the bad guys.
After an appetite-whetting 30-second Olympics TV spot and Daniel Craig himself ringin in the London Games with Queen Elizabeth, James Bond is back in this official full-length trailer for Skyfall, the upcoming 007 flick directed by Sam Mendes.
Agent 007 is presumed dead after a little train accident (see the trailer below). He takes it upon himself to come back from the dead and save MI6 when the list of active covert agents has been leaked.
There are a number of things to look for in this trailer, including Javier Bardem channeling Anton Chigurh in the outlandish hair department as the blond villain Raoul Silva, the return of Q (played by Ben Whishaw), MI6 getting blown up, as well as Bond girls Eve (Naomie Harris) and Severine (Berenice Marlohe).
If there are any fears that Skyfall will fail to uphold the franchise like Quantum of Solace, they may be put to rest by this trailer. At the very least, we’ll get to enjoy classic Bond dialogue exchanges like this:
M: Where the hell have you been?
Bond: Enjoying death.
What are your thoughts on the 23rd installment of the Bond franchise, Skyfall?
