Skyfall Teaser Trailer Review

So far we’ve had to make do with a couple of images of Daniel Craig sitting by a swimming pool, but this morning we finally got our hands on the teaser trailer for Bond 23, or to give it its official and traditionally cryptic title, Skyfall.

In it we see Craig’s uber-moody Bourneist secret agent enjoying a spot of word association before going all Gordon Ramsey on us.. (“Traditional fish and chips. Done. Sweary formulaic American-baiting kitchen series. Done. Skyfall. Done..” etc)

We don’t know too much about the plot of Sam Mendes’ spy thriller at this stage, other than the fact that Craig will have some competition in the ‘Smouldering Hunk’ stakes, with Javier Bardem playing villain Rauol Silva (was that him sans wig, walking away from a burning building? We think it might have been.) But a quick glance at Wikipedia tells us that.. “James Bond’s loyalty to M is challenged over secrets from her past. When MI6 is attacked, it falls to Bond to seek out and eliminate the threat regardless of the cost to himself.”

You’ll also notice Lord Voldemort mincing around outside the interview room half way through this teaser, but soon afterwards, the banging music and vague action clippery kicks in. We’re definitely getting an Oriental taste, yet we can’t help but notice some clips of the Scottish highlands thrown in for good measure as well? Maybe Q and 007 are off to Balmoral?

This one arrives in cinemas in November
