007 Skyfall

Skyfall: Official Trailer

Plot details for the latest 007 outing, Skyfall, have remained a tightly kept secret, with the basic synopsis being, “Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her.” Now the theatrical trailer has been released, without giving too much away before you watch it, it is a break from the norm with all of the classic Bond elements still included. We also get the first look and insight into Javier Bardem’s villain. Coupled with Sam Mendes calling the shots and Roger Deakins’ cinematography, we are in for a thrilling return.  (more…)

Skyfall: Teaser Trailer

The teaser for 007’s new outing, Skyfall, is finally here! After being in a slight touch of development hell with the financial restructuring woes of MGM after Quantum of Solace (not as a result of the film, mind you, it made $586m worldwide), it has had that time to polish off a fine-sounding script and brought together a top-notch team. Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road To Perdition) steps behind the camera with his collaborative cinematographer, Roger Deakins. Joining the regulars of Daniel Craig and Judi Dench are Naomie Harris (Miami Vice, Pirates of the Caribbean), Bérénice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes (Coriolanus) and also Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men) on villain duties.

The teaser, as always, is brief but gives an insight into the film’s look. Without giving too much away before you take a look, Roger Deakin’s cinematography of Shanghai looks amazing bathed in the neon of the city’s skyline. It certainly has the key elements of a great Bond film, but it’s slightly frustrating as this trailer (which it sets out to do) just leaves you wanting more. Roll on October 26th.
