MGM has unveiled a new clip from the upcoming James Bond movie "Skyfall," featuring a scene in which Eve (Naomie Harris) is forced to shoot Bond (Daniel Craig), who's in a middle of a fight on the roof of a moving train. 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 (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, Javier Bardem, Ben Whishaw and Albert Finney. It is set to hit theaters on November 9th.
Javier Bardem has been a great piece of casting, I bet he steals every scene he's in. He was way over the top but Walken did that to Moore in View To A Kill !

It wasn't Bond who got shot. Bond is wearing a more greyish suit, the other guy a tan one, and the other guy is younger. The guy who falls off the bridge/trestle is younger, if you freeze frame it, and is wearing a tan suit. Ergo...
I could be wrong, but that's how it looks, to me at least.
I suspect Mendes deliberately chose someone who resembles Bond and dressed them similarly for the express intent of momentarily confusing the audience and building tension.
Why, I have no idea, because everyone knows there's no chance Bond will die.
Might as well not even put up this article if you're gunna say what happens in it! >_<

The Dark Knight Returns was awesome by the way, one of the most awesome comic book animated films ever, but Looper made no f*cking sense. Fun action, great visuals in some scenes, but no sense. Like, it's 2044, and yet, everyone drives either a 2004 Ford Explorer, or some hoverbike thing, and the use of time travel, please, Stapes thinks Terminator 2 makes no sense, he should see Looper instead.

Mink- I was thinking about getting TDKR. I think I will now, thanks.

James Bond's 'Thunderball' Skyhook actual CIA device
@Mink - I don't mean to set you off, but I'm not sure how some old cars, the use of time travel and a few hover bikes make the whole movie make no sense at all? In any time travel movie people are going to say time travel is so unrealistic, but the old cars is a weak criticism. Cubans drive old cars. But then again Cuba doesn't make much sense either i guess haha.
made sense or not the movie was f*cking boring...i was hoping to see some mind blowing time travel movie and instead i got 2 depressing people sitting in a farm bitching about their life and a retarded child.
nah...it's good you liked it...i'm just one of the few that didn't...

"I'm not sure how some old cars, the use of time travel and a few hover bikes make the whole movie make no sense at all?"
Two separate gripes, my good man.
The year is 2044. That's thirty years from now. Think how cars looked in 1982, thirty years ago. Don't see man New York Chryslers today do you? Nope. EPA regs have run them off the road, and 30 years from now the cars we drive today will be about as environmentally friendly as a d*ckensian chimney stack. That and I expected at least ONE Minority Report car, but I get it. 30 mil budget, so they did what they could, but it hurt the film's credibility.
The time travel thing is something else altogether. The issue with Seth getting the Frequency treatment was cool but nonsensical, and it seems to me there's some sort of conceptual inbreeding going on with respect to time travel.
One film does something off, like Frequency, and you say, okay, that wouldn't work but it's okay, it's fantasy. You forgive and move on. But then another time travel film doesn't start afresh, it just gets it on with another time travel film, multiplying the mutagenic errors.
In other words, Looper should have approached time travel with a clear, fresh, from the source direction, instead of having a love child with it's first cousin Frequency, because whatever errors in common sense that film had, Looper magnified and multiplied them without any shame.
Makes the sub-loop in Back to the Future 2 look tame by comparison.

"but the old cars is a weak criticism. Cubans drive old cars. But then again Cuba doesn't make much sense either i guess haha."
Well, Juarez sits in the dark fifty feet from the glittering United States. Saw that first hand. Lights on side, pitch black shacks on the other, and a huge f*cking fence in between.
Maybe something happened that froze all the cars, so that people are just too damned poor to buy something new, or maybe nothing new is getting made, but STILL, the CROOKS have LOADS of money so you know THEY wouldn't drive some old piece of sh*t, so I would expect at least one glittering futuristic made in China machine, but I didn't see a one.
"made sense or not the movie was f*cking boring...i was hoping to see some mind blowing time travel movie and instead i got 2 depressing people sitting in a farm bitching about their life and a retarded child."
Yeah, that too, but I was under the stupid false impression they were going to team up to destroy the bad guys, kind of like a Die Hard 4 with time travel, a Die Hard 4 that didn't suck sh*t through a Hello Kitty bendy stray.
Total Film gives SKYFALL a 5 out of 5 stars..can't beat that!!
I'm definitely checking it out in the theatres...

"come on mink, Looper made plenty of sense!"
Okay, fair enough; explain how it's consistent, then. Explain how Joe killed himself and yet the entire movie revolved around Willis, his older self, who would thus no longer exist.
Explain how Seth's older self managed to live long enough to get maimed and shot even though they obviously killed Seth's younger self, and why the f*ck didn't they just KILL young Seth like Joe killed his older Brice Willis self?
Looper doesn't even follow it's own loopy non-logic.
Like I said, Looper just incestuously raped the time travel non-logic of Back to the Future and Frequency, and hell, even Primer makes more sense, even though that one doesn't make total sense either, unless you allow for multiple universes, and even that's not 'theoretically' possible, to use Stapes stupefied (lack of) understanding.
Hollywood script writers need to read some actual literature on the physics of time travel and stop recycling nonsense from previous films. It's intellectual stagnation, but god knows, we wouldn't want a film to be smart, right Prometheus? Not for the Lost generation anyway. Nope, have to have dense Grant Morrison/Lindelhof bullsh*t to amaze and amuse.
Mink I don't think many screenwriter's would understand a book about the physics of time travel, and I think it would be hard to make an enjoyable story while simultaneously explaining the theoretical physics behind "real" time travel. Buy hey, if you think you can do it go for it!

I know, I know. Enjoyable for people who think believe Transformers and Twilight deserve a twenty-movie franchise. What a nightmare task.
And to think, the script might include words not found in a Houghton-Mifflin first-grade English primer. The horror!
Wouldn't want those poor, American, Dancing with the Stars, funny youtube cat video minds to implode now would we?

I apologize to my fellow white Americans.
I didn't mean to imply that you're stupid, vain, shallow and empty.
Please, go back to reading Fifty Shades of Gray on your 800 dollar iPad, watching Twilight on your 400 dollar 80-inch Walmart-special television, and eating your fourth McDonalds meal today in your designer Abercrombie and Fitch Made-in-Thailand bullsh*t apparel.
Again, my heartfelt apologies.
We now return to your regular programming, already in progress.
"and why the f*ck didn't they just KILL young Seth like Joe killed his older Brice Willis self?"
That's actually kind of a mind f*ck..
i could sit here and try to find reason and explanation on the rest of that stuff, but honestly, it's been like 3 weeks since i saw the film and i've already forgot most of the details, that and this thread will doubtfully be seen or clicked on again, thus meaning you wont see this comment.. so why bother? lol
