James Bond 007 New Movie Trailer: Skyfall Teaser Shows Off License to Kill (+ Video)

James Bond is back, baby, and his new flick — Skyfall — looks like it will be epic.

In the latest rendition, Daniel Craig's 007 will go up against Academy Award winner Javier Bardem in the sequel.

Though few details have been released, the studio says the plot of Skyfall involves a test of Bond’s loyalty to M "as her past comes back to haunt her."

Bond's outfit, MI6, is attacked and "007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost."

Skyfall features Academy Award winner Judi Dench, who returns as Bond's one-letter boss; M.

French actress Bérénice Marlohe stars as the franchise's latest Bond girl.

 

This will be the 50th anniversary edition of Bond. The film will be directed by Sam Mendez, who has directed flicks including Revolutionary Road, Jarhead, Road to Perdition, and American Beauty.

One thing that will be missing from this movie: James Bond’s signature “shaken, not stirred” martini. Bond will instead be drinking Heineken beer. Seriously.

From the action packed teaser trailer, it looks as if James Bond will take full advantage of his “license to kill.”
