With filming set to wrap up in a few months, we are finally getting a new Bond film this year. Details have been sparse on Sam Mendes‘ Skyfall, but some more tidbits have trickled into today, along with new images thanks to French magazine Studio Ciné Live. We get our first look at Naomie Harris playing field agent Eve and Ralph Fiennes (with more details on his spoilery role here) in some unfortunately lo-res images, but there are a few nice stills of Daniel Craig in action as James Bond.
