'Skyfall' TV Spot Debuts During Olympics Opening Ceremony Broadcast (Video)
Daniel Craig also made an appearance as Bond during the Danny Boyle-directed ceremony.
If it wasn’t enough to see James Bond (Daniel Craig) escort the Queen of England into the stadium via helicopter during the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games, viewers also got another treat: a new TV ad for Skyfall.
The 23rd film in the franchise, which will open in theaters on Nov. 9, follows Bond as his loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested when dark parts of her past come to light.
Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw also star in the Sam Mendes-helmed film.
The new 32-second trailer, which debuted during the Olympics opening ceremony, featured a lot of the same footage that has already hit the web. It’s a lot of brief glimpses of Bond chasing bad guys, shooting guns and, of course, spending some alone time with beautiful women.
The only line uttered by Bond during the ad? “007, reporting for duty.”
During the Danny Boyle-directed opening ceremony on Friday in London, one of the most memorable parts of the program involved Craig, in character as Bond, picking up The Queen of England for a helicopter ride. In what can only be described as movie magic, the Queen and Bond then jumped out of the helicopter above the stadium, parachuting into the night. And then, the Queen walking into the stadium shortly after.
