Agent Bond is back on the screen… Again. Just when you think they have used all the possible intrigues for saving the world from villains with ridiculous accents, Hollywood manages to surprise us: From American Beauty, Sam Mendes went to directing British gentleman 007 in this new opus titled Skyfall. I was not expecting the director of Revolutionary Road and Roadto Perdition to be seduced by such an enterprise, but it might just be that all the boys wish to be a part of the Bond adventure.
The cast also proves quite interesting – apart from Daniel Craig which I never found “James Bondish“ enough… I miss the Roger Moore/ Sean Connery days. This new Bond movie stars Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Javier Bardem. This should add a little depth to the characters. And if Javier Bardem’s haircut proves half as threatening as it was in No Country for Old Men, James Bond is in trouble.
So for those of you who have been eagerly waiting for their fix of explosions, gun shooting and tailor-cut tuxedos that never get creased or dirty; rejoice! Here is the trailer.
Logline: Bond’s loyalty to M 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.
Release dates: October 26 (France, UK), November 9 (US)
