4 new clips from director Sam Mendes’ James Bond film Skyfall have been released. I’m trying my best to temper my expectations following the incredibly positive early reviews, but these new clips aren’t doing me any favors. All signs point to Mendes having crafted a Bond film for the books, and opening day can’t get here soon enough. We’ll have video interviews with the cast soon, but until then check out Steve’s set visit and on-set interviews with Mendes, Daniel Craig and producer Barbara Broccoli, Berenice Marlohe, and Naomie Harris.
Hit the jump to watch the clips. The film also stars Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Helen McCrory. Skyfall opens in traditional theaters and IMAX in the U.S. on 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. The film also stars Berenice Marlohe, Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCroy, Albert Finney, and Ralph Fiennes.
The upcoming film also stars Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, and Jeff Daniels.
