First Official Image from the New James Bond Film, SKYFALL

     February 1, 2012


A few weeks ago, I noted with confusion that an image of Daniel Craig chilling by a pool was an odd choice for the first official image from the new James Bond film, Skyfall.  Turns out I was right to be confused.  The official James Bond Facebook page has released what they’re calling the first official image from Skyfall and they should know.  The image looks far more “Bond”-ian in that is has James Bond holding a gun and…James Bond holding a gun.  He’s a neat room, though.  It looks like he wandered into a level of Perfect Dark.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  The film also stars Naomie Harris, Ben Chaplin, Judi Dench, Berenice Marlohe, Helen McCroy, Albert Finney, and Ralph FiennesSkyfall opens November 9th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Skyfall:

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.  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 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

    007 with a beard? Interesting.

    He looks a little bit like Niko Bellic

    I think its really cool 007 has a beard for once (to my knowledge). Craig pulls off the beard easily, without it looking cheesy. For those who dislike the beard don’t worry, I highly doubt the entire film will have a fuzzy faced Bond. Skyfall is easily in my top 5 to see of 2012. Can’t wait!

      Pierce Brosnan sported a beard in Die Another Day. Although that was more of an I’m-being-held-prisoner-and-have-no-shaving-kit beard.

  • Aurora Vampiris

    I… He looks like my version of Commander Shepard from the Mass Effect game. Looks like he wandered into Ilium.

  • Mr. J

    it’s just me or that image looks a bit like CGI?

    • LP

      What, you no likey colorful bokeh?

  • bjemmi

    it looks like he’s in asia somewhere (notice the half picture on the right) and Nico Bellik!

  • Jake

    Looks more like a Neanderthal with a sissy gun than a rock-star special agent. I hope this will be the last Bond film with Craig, – even a CGI Sean Connery would’ve been better…

      Ever heard of “concealed carry”? Big guns are harder to hide, Einstein.

    • Lizard King

      Sissy gun? James Bond’s gun of choice has long been the PPK, which is TINY. It fits the Bond canon perfectly.

  • potterboy

    this bond is Wong Kar Wai-ish.

    Deakins will really make this visually stunning!

    You guys are calling that a beard? More like a three-day growth.
