Let’s just say that the wait has been worth it. In fact, it’s been more than worth it. We’ve already known the basic premise for this film, and the two trailers below — one international, one domestic — don’t really add much to that initial synopsis. What they do tease, though, is how “Skyfall” could potentially go down in history as the best Bond yet.
This entry into the 007 series seems to have everything that a good Bond film needs. There are two sexy Bond girls, a terrifying villain, a dramatic plot and plenty of action. Couple that with the array of exotic locations and the return of Q and you’ve got a movie that we’re totally sold on. Also, just look at how cool that new gun is.
James Bond has done well for himself in the past when he’s played dead (just look at “You Only Live Twice,” minus all the overt racism), so we’re intrigued by how that element will come into play in this gritty rebooted version of the series. We love the way tensions seem to have risen between Bond and M, and wonder what secret she could possibly have in her past that could blow up in her face — literally — this big.
A plot synopsis released for the film promises that Bond’s loyalty to M is tested when a secret from her past comes back to haunt her. It’s up to 007 to track down and get rid of the threat in order to protect MI6 and the world.
“Skyfall” stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory and Ola Rapace. It’s set for release on November 9.
