Javier Bardem in Skyfall (2012) Movie Image

MGM has released a pair of trailers for James Bond’s latest exploits, “Skyfall”, featuring Bond at his slickest and bad guy Javier Bardem at his, er, blondest? Anyways, love explosions? Hot women taking gratuitous hot showers? Bond looking all suave as he murders people for God and Country? Then you’re going to get a real kick out of these first two full trailers for the movie, which are essentially the same, except the first few sequences are swapped in the timeline for some reason. Not that it matters. It lays down the plot, the menace of Bardem, and even makes young Mr. Q. look kinda cool. Go figure, I guess they knew what they were doing after all when they de-aged the gadgetmaster.

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.

Starring Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, and Ben Whishaw as the new Q.

Sam Mendes directs Bond’s latest, which opens November 9, 2012.

    James Bond doesn’t look like “James Bond” anymore and instead of improving, he lost most of the suave, gained a ton of bad-ass, but still no villain uber enough to give much of a challenge.

    Writers still seemed to be obsessed (or stuck in a rut) with cold war era type espionage, yet most types of espionage now is done by hackers, which prevents the typical 007 from becoming relevant no matter how much he tries to emulate Jason Bourne (the egg and the chicken got reversed. lol. or is it the other way around?)

    The modern James Bond should be like Julian Assange (sans the rape charges). Suave, charismatic, and techno-savvy. But with the brutal efficiency and the ability to stay several steps ahead of his enemies like you know… the goddam Batman!

    Afterwards, all he needs is a proper villain. Like a charismatic megalomaniac supremacist backed by fascist oligarchs, or rogue agents from his own agency resorting to terrorism while trying to instigate an “ozymandias-type” doomsday scenario.

    Something awesome instead of a laughable Kevin Spacey-type Lex Luthor.
    (Although, the Betrayal from the highest levels of your own organization seemed like a decent enough challenge. But still.. Jason Bourne much?)
