Sony and MGM recently unveiled the theme song for the new James Bond movie "Skyfall," performed by Adele. And today, we have a new trailer for the film, featuring that song. Check it out below.
In "Skyfall," Bond's loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 (Daniel Craig) must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
The new film is directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty) and co-stars Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Albert Finney. It is set to hit theaters on November 9th.

For some reason this just feels like a return to the real Bond franchise not the new 00Bourne crap that we've seen lately. This song sounds like one you'd hear in a Sean Connery Bond film, which gives me goosebumps. The action looks like the outstanding stuntwork we saw in the Moore and Dalton films. And I didn't see Bond kung fuing anyone, which is just fine by me (he's not Jackie f*cking Chan). Only thing missing was the car and some gadgets. I'm pretty excited about this film (as if you couldn't tell already).

What's everyone's favorite Bond song? There have been many good ones, some bad, and a few Top 40 hits. For me its 80s View to a Kill and surprisingly Madonna's Die Another Day (probably just because that's one of my fav Bond title sequences. Loved seeing him get tortured).
Favorite Bond Theme?
On Her Majesty's Secret Service, John Barry score
A View to a Kill
The Living Daylights
Die Another Die
Skyfall (even I hadn't see it but I know it will be a revival of classic Bond Films, instead of The Quantum Identity)
@SACdaddy, definitely Live and Let Die. Paul McCartney's best song, arguably.
Casino Royale was very good. Quantum wasn't bad, although I feel it was a tad underrated. But I understand the criticism. This one looks extremely promising, hopefully Mendes pulls it off. Road to Perdition and American Beauty are both solid films.
The cinematography is nothing short of splendid. Besides a weaker narrative, I think the biggest problem in Quantum was the lack of comprehensible action scenes. Too much Bourne, as mentioned earlier in this post. Hopefully, staging improves.
