Sony has released the first official look at Daniel Craig’s third time out as James Bond in Sam Mendes’ Skyfall. What can we glean from the image? Not a whole lot, but it’s an interesting first image to release. Normally, you expect to see Bond on the beach, or in a tuxedo, or looking dapper with a sexy girl by his side drinking a martini.
But this? The five o’clock shadow instantly jumps out. Bond looks like shit. Like he’s a common criminal lurking in a dark alley waiting to kill somebody. I love it. It’s dark, brooding and not at all what I was expecting.
The movie boasts a stellar cast including Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Berenice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Albert Finney and Judi Dench. It rolls out wordwide from November.
