Train crashing through a subway system? Check. Bond girl shaving James Bond? Check. Bond girl looking like she’s shivering in lingerie with her giant window open on a skyscraper? Check.
Looks like a Bond film to me! Except for the lack of Aston Martin (was there one?) and martinis. But hey, you can’t have everything. We start off with pretty much the nicest interrogation scene in the history of film. I mean really, he can just get up and walk away? Or maybe it’s a debriefing?
There’s a lot of death, Skyfall is something that holds a lot of emotional wealth. Hey look – it’s Judy Dench! Exploding, shooting, moneyshot, wide shot of mountains, running, title card.
That’s pretty much how the trailer goes.
It’s a minute and 24 seconds of whetting the appetite for Bond fans. Even though they barely play the patented Bond theme at the end there, it’s like trance legend Armin van Buuren was brought on as composer for the film.
Skyfall lands in theaters in November and is directed by Sam Mendes and stars Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes.
