Sony has released a new banner for the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall. I thought the teaser poster was a bit bland (it could have been used for any James Bond film), but it’s a masterpiece compared to four characters standing in front of a logo. The banner almost looks like it’s trying to advertise clothes than a movie. It’s also odd that they’ve pushed poor Daniel Craig all the way to the side. Yes, from left to right the position makes some sense, but if you look at it as a whole, the villain (Javier Bardem) is the one who grabs your attention.
Hit the jump to check out the full banner. The film also stars Berenice Marlohe, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCroy, Albert Finney, and Ralph Fiennes. Skyfall opens November 9th. [Update: Character posters for each actor have now been released, and these are also included after the jump]
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.
