New Skyfall trailer is out! Daniel Craig is back with a bang in the new Bond franchise, where he is seen getting "killed" initially but returns to duty after the life of M (Judi Dench) is threatened.
The two-minute long clip gives you a gist of the upcoming Bond sequel which is full of action and thrill.
The Huffington Post reports that the new trailer offers fans a full look at Javier Bardem's villain, a blond-haired heavy who has a thing for inspector uniforms and sneering.
Skyfall looks promising and up to the mark when compared to the earlier Bond series. The trailer is undeniably awesome but whether the movie will fulfill expections, we'll only know in November.
Bond film stars lend voices to 007 Legends
Daniel Craig, Michael Lonsdale, Richard Kiel and Naomie Harris will be voicing key James Bond characters in October tie-in 007 Legends.
Richard Kiel will again step into the mighty shoes of Jaws, Michael Lonsdale appears as Hugo Drax, and Naomie Harris is in on the action as fellow special operative Eve.
Unfortunately, the cast list gives away precious little about the game itself, which is to feature episodes from six Bond films; Drax and Jaws both appeared in Moonraker, already confirmed as a component of 007 Legends, along with On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Its October 16 release date is timed to coincide with the arrival of Skyfall in cinemas, only just avoiding an avalanche of action games in the following weeks (Medal of Honor, Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty); players will be able to download the Skyfall missions after the film has made its debut.
Skyfall is set to hit the theaters on November 9.
Queen Elizabeth's cameo with 'Bond' at London Olympics opening ceremony
Britain's Queen Elizabeth arrived at the opening ceremony of the Olympics in spectacular style on Friday, greeted by a huge roar from the crowd as she appeared in the stadium to help officially open the London Games.
Minutes earlier the 86-year-old monarch appeared in her first film role on big screens with the James Bond actor Daniel Craig at Buckingham Palace, her London residence.
In the film, the two were seen entering a helicopter which swept off over the capital. Minutes later a helicopter appeared above the stadium and released two people who parachuted just past the stadium.
The Queen then walked into the opening ceremony in east London, before the 60,000 strong audience, and before a choir sang the national anthem.
