The early reviews have been almost universally brilliant – you can read our review here – and following the handful of new images we saw this morning, we’ve now got a new clip to share with you, courtesy of Yahoo Movies, in which Bond meets his quartermaster, a.k.a. Q (Ben Whishaw).
“In SKYFALL, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.”
Craig takes the lead alongside an all-star cast, headed up by Javier Bardem, Bérénice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Whishaw, Albert Finney, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace, and Dame Judi Dench.
Sam Mendes, the Oscar-winning director of American Beauty, is making his Bond debut behind the camera, with a script penned by Bond frequents Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and the ever-brilliant John Logan (Gladiator, Coriolanus).
Skyfall will be landing in regular and IMAX theatres this Friday in the UK, 26th October. In the US, its IMAX release comes a day early on 8th November, before going wide on 9th November. Judging by all we’ve seen so far, coupled with the early reviews, it looks set to be one of the best films of the year. By far.
