As a young boy, one of my favorite things about James Bond movies were the final credits. At the very end of each movie it would say JAMES BOND WILL RETURN IN _______.
Since 1985′s A View To A Kill, it has only read JAMES BOND WILL RETURN. Here’s hoping Skyfall will have 007 return to his roots and tell us the title of the next Bond adventure.
With news that the first trailer for the 23rd James Bond movie, Skyfall, is coming next month, Sony has announced that the 24th movie will come out at the end of 2014. The gap between Quantum Of Solace and Skyfall was four years, mainly due to the financial instabilities of MGM. With such issues out the way, the plan is to get the franchise back on a two year schedule, like it has usually been throughout it’s 50 year run.
Daniel Craig has the option of returning for a 4th time as the world’s most famous secret agent.
Until then, we are preparing for the teaser trailer for Skyfall at the end of May.
Sony Pictures’ was at CinemaCon last night with an impressive 45-minute reel of their upcoming 2012 line-up with the high point being the first time anyone had a chance to see any footage from the upcoming James Bond movie Skyfall. In this case the very first teaser trailer.
An insider at Coming Soon got a chance to see it all. Here is what he saw from the Skyfall teaser trailer…
It begins with an interrogation scene, possibly a psych evaluation of Bond as someone is doing a word association game with the agent. At first we hear it as narration over a couple of establishing shots of London, starting with “Country” to which Bond responds “England.” “Gun” is next, with the response being “Shot,” followed by “agent” and “provocateur,” and “murder” to which Bond replies “employment.” By then, we’re into the interrogation room and there are three people behind the glass looking on with Dame Judi Dench’s M and Ralph Fiennes’ Mallory being the most prominent, though we’re not sure who the third person was. (In hindsight, either that third person or the interrogator may have been Albert Finney’s character, but we’re not sure.) When the interrogator says “Skyfall,” Bond doesn’t respond so he says “Skyfall” again and Bond says “Done” and gets up to leave.
From there, we got a lot of quick shots of a lot of different images, many of Bond running or falling, either into water or from some height. We see him on a barge in front of the Macao casino with the giant dragons in the background, which we saw on set a few weeks back, and he’s running through cars in London, presumably part of his chase after Silva. We also saw the briefest shot of the subway car crash that ends that chase.
There was absolutely no sign of Javier Bardem’s character anywhere in the teaser, unless he went by too fast for us to notice and probably only one shot each of Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe (and we’re not 100% of the second one).
It ends with Bond saying “Some men are coming to kill us. We’ve got to kill them first.”
