Skyfall: Explosive Full Trailer Reveals Incredible New Bond Storyline!
When Skyfall's first teaser trailer landed in May, we were naturally hugely excited. But, to be honest, still a little confused.
Why was James Bond being interrogated by MI6? Why is there panic on the streets of London? And just what the hell is Skyfall, anyway?
Thankfully, Skyfall's first full-length international trailer clears up a lot of the confusion and reveals much more about the hugely anticipated film's storyline.
It turns out that a hard drive has been lost - probably by some bloody forgetful old sausage on the train to work - which contains the details of all of MI6's secret agents. With security compromised, the secret service are more or less swimming up a turd river with only their hands for paddles.
We also see M writing James Bond's obituary, presumably after he is shot off the top of a moving train mid-scrap. But it seems like the whole thing is just a hilarious practical joke from 007, who uses his time "dead" to go all Club 18-30 and knock back a few vodkas and party with some scorpions. The nutter.
The trailer isn't short on explosive set-pieces, either. There's a tube train ploughing through the ground and a huge explosion at MI6 HQ, clearly implying a terrorist attack in the heart of London.
There's also a train being smashed up by a digger while Bond runs for his life. We see Bond out-jump the crumbling wreckage and immediately smarten up his cufflinks - hinting at a return to the "classier" days of Pierce Brosnan's 007.
We also get a first look at "The New Q" giving Bond a fingerprint-activated pistol and Javier Bardem's blond Bond villain, called Silva, confronting 007. Silva is later seen disguised as a British policeman, indicating that he may just be involved in this terrorist attack.
All we need now is a martini shaken, not stirred.
Skyfall is released on 26 October!
