There’s been a heavy influx of official photos from the set of Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film, over the past several months; that said; the film has been relatively lacking in traditional advertising. That changes now: the film’s teaser trailer is set for a May 21st release, and today, we’ve got the official teaser poster. It’s one that features Daniel Craig’s James Bond being, well, all James Bond-y (with some subtle plot hints). Check it out below.
Actually, upon closer inspection, the poster does have a subtle nod towards the film’s plot, even if, upon first glance, it appears to be a pretty generic Bond opening credits pose. Look carefully, and you’ll see that Bond is not facing down the traditional barrel of the opening credits gun; rather, he’s walking through one of London’s underground tube tunnels. Apparently, a good portion of Skyfall will take place in London’s underground tube system; the new official poster is a clever nod towards that plot point.
Skyfall stars Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, and Albert Finney, and is set for a U.S. release on November 9th. The film’s plot concerns M’s past “coming back to haunt her” as well as testing Bond’s loyalty to his long-time boss.
