Nowadays it’s not enough to just post a trailer, you have to also post a preview for the trailer a day or so ahead of time, to increase the hype. Thus, we have today’s “Skyfall” trailer preview.
“Skyfall” is the latest – and 23rd – James Bond film, and is being released in the 50th anniversary year of the Bond film series, which began with 1962’s “Dr. No.”
The plot of the movie is as follows:
“M becomes the subject of a government review when MI6’s active case roster is leaked, compromising the identities of every single undercover operative the agency has placed in terrorist networks around the world. When the agency itself is attacked, it falls to James Bond to seek out and eliminate the threat regardless of the cost to himself — but as he follows a trail from Istanbul to the South China Sea, Bond soon finds his loyalty to M challenged over secrets from her past.”
The trailer shows us that the leak occurred three months before. We also get to see “M” telling a female sniper to “Take the bloody shot,” who looks to be Naomie Harris (“28 Days Later”), whose role as “Eve” has been the source of much conjecture.
Also starring in the movie are Judi Dench as “M” (her seventh outing), Albert Finney as Kincade, and Ralph Fiennes as Mallory.
