Sony released the first teaser trailer for Skyfall today and it looks amazing. After months of behind the scene looks and set visits we’re finally seeing what it was all about and yet at the end of the 90 second trailer we’re left without any clue of what it was about. Awesome! The teaser does exactly what it promised, it teased the hell out of us. It whet our appetites and let us ponder the fate of Bond. We don’t even see Javier Bardem, the reported baddie of the 23rd Bond film. And what is Ralph Fiennes‘ role?
I hope Skyfall doesn’t follow the recent trend set by the likes of The Avengers and release clip after clip after clip. I like my movies to weave their intricate thread before my eyes in a cinema not in 3 minute clips spread weeks apart and out of order.[youtube:http://youtu.be/24mTIE4D9JM%5D
Here’s the official synopsis (via Collider):
“Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.”
Skyfall is directed by Sam Mendes and stars Daniel Craig, Bérénice Marlohe, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCroy, Albert Finney, Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes.
In theaters on November 19.
