Skyfall Trailer: James Bond Dies, Then He Kicks Everyone's Ass

Random observations from the first full Skyfall trailer: It looks like James Bond will have to confront old age and mortality. Javier Bardem makes for a sinister looking blond villain. Ben Whishaw as the new Q! More Judi Dench. There will be some Ralph Fiennes. It doesn't look like there will be much of a love story to distract us from the *splodey* and did I mention JAVIER BARDEM AS A BLONDE?

Here's the trailer.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Is this the joker?

  • stu

    HELL YEAH!!!!

  • 1qtp2t

    Never underestimate the power of bad hair on Javier. Do I need to remind you of No Country for Old Men?

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Bardem looks uncannily like Tim Curry. Blond Tim Curry.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Let me guess. After Bardem's character captures Bond he bases his decision on whether to let Bond live or die by tossing a quarter, but instead of simply using his hand to flip it he instead uses an unnecessarily extravagant machine.

    Which would be AWESOME. And Bond-y.

    Sorry but Havier looks lame. They couldn't have gone with a different hair cut instead of dyeing?

    I just hope they're done with the Vesper storyline. They had an entire (horrible) movie to talk about that.

  • annie

    Whishaw looks adorable as Q, which might be counter-productive, but he's an ace actor, Bond in swim-trunks between kicking ass, more Judi Dench, and my very specific kink of a woman shaving a man done by the delicious Naomie Harris. Word.

  • Erich

    Javier Bardem, in that picture anyway, looks like Marlon Wayans dressed as one of the girls in White Girls.

  • //loosens stays yet remains breathless//

    There are no words for how sexy Daniel Craig is. Allow me to demonstrate: Daniel Craig is really,very, truly, madly, deeply, exquisitely, profoundly, devastatingly, incomprehensibly, mindbogglingly, maddeningly, overwhelmingly, tremendously, magnificently sexy. Manifestly inadequate. The man IS sex. Cathy is Heathcliff. Daniel Craig is Sex. Water is to H2O as Daniel Craig is to .... The correct answer is: Sex. The way he sits in the chair as Bardem approaches, casually insolent: Sex. The way he straightens himself after jumping into a moving train: Sex. The way he stands still on top of a building filmed in profile: Sex. The way he exists: SEX.

    Woman. Contain yourself.

    Actually, it's nice to see such unabashed and yet well-thought-out lust.

  • I am nothing if not unabashed and yet well-thought-out.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Upon consideration, I've decided I agree with you. He's pretty effing manly. I hope his hair doesn't totally desert him, but he looks like he'll be able to rock the Ed Harris.

  • I think he's old enough now that a comprehensive follicular abandonment is unlikely. If he can just remember to keep it short as a floppy-haired Daniel Craig is not a good thing, but he does have my permission to grow a beard.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Awesome! Happy Birthday to me!

    Poor Javi, seems like he is always getting a bad hairdo.

  • BobbFrapples

    A new Q! I'm in!

  • Fredo

    Don't know how I feel about Q Jr. but everything else looks spot on perfect.

    And it says October -- any idea why it got pushed up from its usual November spot?

  • Scottieboy

    It's October in the UK - November in the US.

  • gauche

    that's not how time zones work.

  • The Other Agent Johnson

    That shot of him landing in the derailing train and instantly standing upright and straightening his cufflinks? That is some of the most perfect Bond I've ever seen.

  • Lemon_Poundcake


  • Nadine

    That's the first NuBond I've seen so far that actually looks like a god damn BOND movie. I am all the way up for this, ho yes.

  • Yes.

  • For real. Saw the trailer on Sunday and I think it's the first one that I actually WANT to go see in the theaters.
