When he’s not chauffeuring royalty to the opening ceremonies of olympics and the like, James Bond likes to avoid gunfire of dozens of mindless thugs, defeat villains with foreign accents, walk away from explosions and let teenage Q replacement Ben Whishaw tutor him in technology – as we can see in this brand new Skyfall trailer.
So if you’ve had enough of the former and are looking for more of the latter, please be upstanding and charge your glasses for Bond is coming back in Skyfall. We’ve already seen a neat opening teaser but today Sony Pictures released the full-length trailer that shows more of Bond being, well, the kind of jerk that Bond is.
He’s back in the blue water-garments he was sporting in Casino Royale, complete with the famous Walther PPK Short pistol that we haven’t seen since Brosnan’s last outing in Die Another Day – although with modifications, of course.
Javier Bardem’s looking mentally ill as ever with his blonde barnet and, quite frankly, we think he seems a downright more villainous villain than what we’ve come to see in the past. Quantum of Solace was all about an eco-maniac, while Casino Royale was about a poker player. It’s time to bring out the big guns.
Put that tiny pistol away for goodness sake, will you Bond?
Check out the Skyfall trailer below.
UPDATE: A second, not-international (if you’re in the UK, just read “international”) trailer has also debuted which, in our opinion, has the better first third, a similar middle third and the exact same final third. So not too shabby. Take a look.
