'Skyfall': 'Mommy was very bad' and other curious clues in the new James Bond trailer

From the director of American Beauty and Revolutionary Road… James Bond in… Skyfall!!

Sam Mendes may have been an unorthodox choice to direct the 23rd official James Bond film — and the first in four years — but the new trailer demonstrates a great appreciation for 007’s cinematic canon and the evolving action genre in the (just) post-Bourne, post-Dark Knight era. There are nods to WikiLeaks, echoes of London’s 7/7 subway explosions, and a thick cloud of suspicion about even the most trusted institutions. The house has crumbled and Bond needs to become a new man to rebuild it.

Below are a few moments from the new trailer that made me grin, happy that Bond’s Olympic helicopter leap with the Queen won’t be the year’s most awesome 007 event. READ FULL STORY

'Skyfall' trailer: Let the games begin?

“Double-0 seven reporting for duty.”

So says our favorite British action hero after he’s returned from the dead. The new trailer for Skyfall, the latest installment of the Bond franchise starring Daniel Craig, finally lets us in on the goods. There’s M typing up an obituary for Bond after a mission gone wrong in Turkey. “What do you say about a man like that,” she wonders. Bond was shot off the top of a speeding train by a sniper, falling lifelessly off a bridge and into the water Jason Bourne-like.

“Where the hell have you been?” M asks, after Bond makes his way back to the land of the living.

“Enjoying death.”

Watch two versions of the trailer below, which both introduce Bond’s new [Q]uartermaster, two potentially dangerous ladies, and a blond baddie played by Javier Bardem. READ FULL STORY

'Skyfall' TV spot: Don't muss James Bond's suit

Along with James Bond’s buzzy appearance with Queen Elizabeth II during the Olympic Opening Ceremonies on Friday, the British secret agent also debuted the newest TV spot for his upcoming feature film Skyfall. While it’s mostly made up of shots from the first trailer, the ad ends with a new killer moment of vintage Bond-ian style. Check it out below:  READ FULL STORY

'Skyfall' first look: Ben Whishaw is the new Q! -- EXCLUSIVE

The first two James Bond films starring Daniel Craig famously took things back to basics — no cartoonishly eccentric über-villain, no wildly over-the-top secret lair, and no over-elaborate sci-fi gadgetry. Most of the changes were quite welcome, but that last one also meant the loss of one of the franchise’s most beloved characters: Q, the master of spy technology at MI6 and a sharp comic foil for Agent 007.

EW is happy to confirm that Q will return in the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, as played by actor Ben Whishaw (Bright StarI’m Not TherePerfume). Q will aid Bond’s mission to help save MI6 after it comes under attack thanks to a looming threat in M’s (Judi Dench) past. Check out this exclusive first look at Whishaw as the character below:  READ FULL STORY

Ralph Fiennes Q&A: Directing Shakespeare and taking orders from Bond

What the Dickens is going on with Ralph Fiennes? Not only is he playing Magwitch in Mike Newell’s upcoming adaptation of Great Expectations, but he’s also starring in and directing The Invisible Woman, a movie about the great author’s secret mistress. EW caught up with Fiennes to ask him not only about Dickens, but also two other great English writers: Shakespeare (Fiennes’ adaptation of Coriolanus is out on DVD this week) and Fleming (he’s got a top secret part in Skyfall, the new James Bond film).

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Coriolanus was your first attempt at directing a movie. Why choose Shakespeare? And why that particular play? For your first time, why not pick something easy — maybe Vacation of the Titans?
RALPH FIENNES: Its challenging nature is what I love about it. I performed it onstage years ago and have been thinking about it as a film ever since. Shakespeare is challenging for a lot of people but I find it thrilling. The language is like music. READ FULL STORY

'Skyfall' teaser trailer: 'Murder?' asks a shrink. 'Employment,' responds James Bond

Will M die? Will Adele be doing the title song? And what part exactly is Ralph Fiennes playing in the 23rd James Bond movie?

The first teaser trailer for Skyfall, due in theaters Nov. 19, answered none of these hotly-rumored questions. We still have no idea what Sam Mendes’ movie will be about. But the trailer does offer a tantalizing glimpse of what’s ahead. At one point in Skyfall, for instance, Bond will apparently play word association games with a prison psychiatrist. “Murder?” the doctor asks. “Employment,” 007 replies. Welcome back, Mr. Bond. Check out the trailer below:  READ FULL STORY

CinemaCon 2012: James Bond not interested in games in first trailer for 007's 'Skyfall'

What exactly does the movie title Skyfall refer to?

We’re not getting any answers out of James Bond.

The first trailer for Daniel Craig’s third outing as 007 (due in theaters Nov. 19) begins with the British superspy in a debriefing room, playing word association with an examiner while Judi Dench’s M and Ralph Fiennes, apparently a member of the government agency, look on dourly through one-way glass.

James Bond production video: 'Skyfall' goes to Shanghai!

A new video from the set of the upcoming James Bond film Skyfall brings the travel-porn aspect of the franchise to the forefront, with various production people carrying us through Shanghai. Locations include a pretty bridge, various neon skyscrapers, and a highway lit entirely in an eerie blue tone. There aren’t too many plot teases — spoiler alert, there’s a car chase in a Bond movie — but it sure looks cool. (Daniel Craig only appears intermittently. Spoiler alert: he’s scowling!)

'Skyfall' featurettes: Meet the new Bond girls! -- VIDEO

We’ve already gotten a sneak peek of Skyfall‘s villainous Silva (Javier Bardem), but what is a James Bond movie without a little leg? The movie just released two new featurettes introducing the latest batch of beauties: Bérénice Marlohe plays Sévérine and warns that her character “has a dark side.” Meanwhile, Naomie Harris comes out with a bang — literally. As field agent Eve, she wields a variety of lethal weapons and “sees herself as Bond’s equal.” Learn more about the actresses stepping into Skyfall below. READ FULL STORY

Javier Bardem goes undercover in new 'Skyfall' photo

Flynet UK/FameFlynet Pictures

When you think of Javier Bardem as a sadistic villain, a certain hair-do likely springs to mind. Anton Chiguhr’s page-boy locks in No Country for Old Men became part of that character’s terrifying menace. Skyfall director Sam Mendes — wisely methinks — is going in a completely different direction for Bardem’s baddie in the next James Bond film due this fall. In a recent Daily Mail snapshot from the film’s set in Whitehall, Bardem was dressed as a London Metropolitan cop, with straw-blond hair poking out from under his cap.

Of course, the blond hair could be as much a part of his disguise as the badge and uniform. Bardem’s criminal, reportedly named Silva, could conceivably have another unsettling ‘do under that hat and/or wig. Or he could be completely bald, a look that’s worked for Bond’s nemeses in the past and seems to be coming back en vogue, what with Batman’s latest challenge, Bane. I’m hoping, though, that the blond hair is real, and that when he’s not wearing a hat, he styles it just like Max Zorin from A View to a Kill.
