Video: James Bond is back in new Skyfall trailer
Bond seen faking own death in new movie
JAMES Bond will be seen faking his own death in the action-packed forthcoming movie Skyfall.
And newly released footage shows that the action hero – played by Daniel Craig – will once again utter the immortal line “Bond, James Bond”.
A new trailer for the Sam Mendes-directed film to be released later this year shows the movie will feature a London Tube crash and an explosion on the MI6 building.
During the trailer actress Naomie Harris is seen taking aim through a rifle sight as Bond grapples on the roof of a speeding train, with M – played by Dame Judi Dench – telling her to “take the bloody shot”. Daniel Craig then plunges hundreds of feet from a viaduct into a river below after being shot.
M later appears to be preparing an obituary for 007 as she sits in her rain-lashed office in London, pondering: “What do you say about a man like that?”
She is also seen viewing a row of coffins draped with Union Flags.
It would not be the first time Bond has apparently died in the plot of one of the films. In You Only Live Twice he fakes his death to go undercover.
In Skyfall, the agent is seen in conversation with the film’s villain, played by Javier Bardem.
Bond tells him “everybody needs a hobby”, with Javier Bardem asking: “So what’s yours?”
Daniel Craig – starring in his third movie – answers: “Resurrection.”
Fans will be pleased to see Bond is issued once more with a Walther PPK by the new Q – played by Ben Whishaw – although it has a high-tech upgrade to respond to his palm print.
Skyfall is to be released in the UK on October 26.
