News: New Skyfall Trailer, Olympic TV Spot, Pics, And Clips

As I mentioned last week during my update on The Bourne Legacy, this is a bumper year for those of who enjoy our spy action thrillers. Skyfall is shaping up to be the best Bond film in a very long time (the IMAX trailer is mind-blowing) and the new trailer, released today, only serves to confirm that.

Stunts AND a story arc for James Bond? What’s become of the franchise? Director Sam Mendes has jumped onboard and has dared to take the series forward. We see M (Dame Judi Dench) making a desperate call – “Take the bloody shot” – that results in Bond (Daniel Craig) being taken out by Naomie Harris’s Eve. Betrayed, and drowning his sorrows in a bar, serious things happen back in London that require a return of Bond’s rather unique skill set. The superspy rises?

Here’s our first official look at Javier Bardem’s Silva, the film’s big bad, and he appears to be having a lot of fun with the role. Here’s hoping he’s a villain who can give Bond a serious run for his money (even if we’re certain how it’ll all finish).

Bond also made an appearance in the opening ceremony for London’s Olympic Games, leaping from a helicopter with The Queen. This TV spot was released in the US with NBC’s coverage.

Here’s some pics from Skyfall‘s Istanbul set-piece on motor bikes. Here’s Daniel Craig looking cool.

This is Ola Rapace (Yes, the ex-husband of the lovely Noomi) as Patrice, Silva’s bit of muscle, racing through the busy streets.

Bond takes cover from the bad guys.

As we saw from the trailer, Q is back, this time played by Ben Whishaw. There’s also a return of the more playful relationship between the two, Q ribbing Bond on his old school methods of spying, while Bond takes umbrage at Q’s age.

And finally, here’s a videoblog of another return to the franchise – the iconic Aston Martin DB5.

So, what are your thoughts on the new trailer? Are you looking forward to Skyfall? What do you think of the villain, Silva? Let us know down below.
