It’s getting closer.
For those on the lucky side of the pond, Sam Mendes‘ take on arguably the most iconic film character in history is only a week away, and as a final reminder, we’re being treated to a new Skyfall trailer.
While there’s not a huge amount of new footage in it, it is in my opinion the best one so far. While the previous trailer played on the mystery of the villain and introduced M as a more central character, this one is all about Bond. Here we see exactly how comfortable Daniel Craig has become in his role. His Bond is considerably hardened and more lived from the one we saw in the underwhelming Quantum of Solace, and Craig’s very appearance underlines that. He’s noticeably older and has substituted his cool, suave demeanor of a man with something to prove from Casino Royale for a gruffer, cockier, but no less charming aura of a guy who’s been around the block a few hundred times.
And I, for one, am looking forward to seeing all these glorious, thundering set pieces assembled in the correct order.
Are you excited for Skyfall? Why? Why not? Tell us.
