Finally. The long-awaited return of James Bond has begun with this teaser for Skyfall, which provides our first real look at Sam Mendes‘ spin on the classic, revered franchise — and, thank God, it looks to have been worth the wait. Though frustratingly brief and endlessly vague, we’re already getting snatches of a morose, real-world nature promised by Mendes and Daniel Craig, along with the massive scale fans of the series have come to expect. It’s, again, very little, but this tantalizing promise only brings my (already considerable) anticipation to a new high. And isn’t that exactly what a teaser’s supposed to do?
Watch it below:
In SKYFALL, 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.
Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem, Judie Dench, Ben Whishaw, Ola Rapace, Helen McCrory, Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Tonia Sotiropoulou, and Albert Finney also star in the film, which is set for a stateside release on November 9th, after bowing in the UK on October 26th.
