Bond fans, it’s been four years since Quantum of Solace shrugged its way into theaters with a mish-mashed plot and nigh-incomprehensible editing; now, it seems that 007 (with a little help from American Beauty and Revolutionary Road director Sam Mendes) is set to get back on track with Skyfall. Last week, we shared the clever new poster for the film; today, you can take a look at the film’s new teaser trailer—gunplay, psychiatric interrogations, and erotic shaving ahoy.
But before you get too excited, remember: this is only a teaser. Not much of a plot is revealed beyond the fact that James Bond gets really pissy if you ask him about anything related to something called “skyfall.” After that, a few quick glimpses of gunfire, an underground train crash, and some heavily intense music cues are all we get.
Still, the Skyfall release is another six months away, so don’t be let down if this teaser doesn’t satisfy your appetite for all things 007—if 2012 has taught us anything about movie marketing thus far, it’s that we’ll see the entire third act of the film wedged into a trailer by the middle of August, effectively spoiling the entire film for us.
Skyfall stars Daniel Craig as James Bond, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, and Albert Finney, and is set for a U.S. release on November 9th. The plot reportedly concerns M’s past “coming back to haunt her” as well as testing Bond’s loyalty to his long-time boss.
