Hot on the heels of a new trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey comes an admittedly much more exciting international trailer for another of 2012’s biggest late-year film events: Sam Mendes’ Skyfall. We’ve already seen some excellent teaser and theatrical trailers for the 23rd James Bond film, and this brisk new trailer arrives with a stern warning from new Bond girl Berenice Marlohe to 007 (Daniel Craig) concerning exactly how frightening and badass this film’s villain Silva (Javier Bardem) really is, as well as teasing more of the mystery surrounding M (Judy Dench) and her dubious past. Once again, everything here looks spot on — spectacular action setpieces, a chilling new villain, an alluring new Bond girl, exotic locations, plenty at stake for Bond and M16 — and I have very high expectations for Skyfall.
Skyfall hits UK screens on October 26, US on November 9, and New Zealand on November 22. The film stars Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory, Naomie Harris, Ola Rapace, Berenice Marlohe and Rory Kinnear.
