James Bond SKYFALL Teaser Trailer Description
The first teaser trailer for the new James Bond Skyfall was shown at CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday during the Sony presentation. Thanks to Cinema Blend, we have a detailed description of the footage that was shown, along with some of the dialogue. From the description of this trailer, it sounds like director Sam Mendes might be bringing us one of the darkest and most action-packed 007 films yet. At least that's what I'm really hoping for. Here's the description:
The trailer begins with a shot of Bond (Daniel Craig) from behind looking at the city of London. Then we hear someone in a voice-over say the word “Country” and Bond saying, “England.” It seems he is playing some sort of word association game. We then hear the mystery voice say “Gun” and Bond replies “Shot” as we view a target at the end of a shooting range. We then see that 007 is in an interrogation room where he is being asked the questions and being watched by Ralph Fiennes and some other people through two-way mirrors. The man sitting in front of Bond says “Agent,” and the superspy replies “Provocateur.” As more images flash on the screen the word association game continues: “Murder” “Employment.” The music then drops out as we flash back to the interrogation room and the man running the test says. “Skyfall.” After a pause, Bond says, “Done,” and stands up from the table. Another huge montage begins and we see shots of helicopters, giant fireballs causing a mysterious silhouette, shots of the Shanghai nightlife, Bond is standing over a long row of coffins draped with the flag of England, and a subway car crashing through a tunnel wall with incredible force. As the trailer comes to an end we hear Bond say, “Someone is coming to kill us. We’re going to kill them first.”
From beginning to end the trailer was impressive and had a very slick look to it that we don’t typically see from Mendes’ movies. While it all came in flashes, the movie looks like it is very action packed and tense. As excited as I was for Skyfall going into the presentation, I’m even more excited now.
One day we'll all be able to see this trailer for ourselves. I imagine since it's already been cut and ready to go, Sony will release it online or in theaters soon. It sounds like this next Bond film is going to be well worth the wait. The movie will hit theaters on November 9th!
