As the long wait until Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film, finally hits theaters in the U.S. on November 9 continues to crawl ever onward, we’re finally getting some more images and plot details from the set of the upcoming film.  Curious to see what Bond has been up to since Quantum of Solace?  Check out the new pictures and details after the jump.

/Film has it that there will be a “setpiece involving a confrontation between James Bond (Daniel Craig) and the villain Silva (Javier Bardem) that is partially resolved through the intervention of a crashing London Tube train,” while also confirming the existence of a “stunning” Shanghai casino set, as well as the “remnants of an impressive deserted town meant to be on an island off the coast of Japan.”

Moreover, Albert Finney will be playing a new character named Kincaide, who has an affinity for 19th Century English firearms—like percussion pistols and elephant guns.  Globetrotting, gunplay, Javier Bardem playing a villain, and elephant guns?  Go ahead and sign me up now for this ridiculousness—I’m in.

Skyfall will be the first Bond film to have an IMAX release, and will see aworldwide release on October 26, and its United States release is on November 9, 2012.
