Daniel Craig in Skyfall

Damn, this looks badass already and we haven't even seen a trailer yet! Some new photos, both official stills and set photos, have arrived online recently for Sam Mendes' Skyfall, or Bond 23, the new James Bond film now shooting in London starring Daniel Craig once again as 007. We've been teased for a while with a single photo of Bond here or there, but now we finally have a big batch of 9 photos, some featuring Bond in action, others showing Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench as M, and Bond girl Naomie Harris as Eve. This is looking better and better the more they shoot, can't wait to see an actual trailer. Check out the shots below!

New photos originally come from SlashFilm and Empire. Click on any link to see a few more B-T-S shots.

I seriously cannot fucking wait! Mendes will give us an epic Bond film.

Xerxexx on Apr 11, 2012


Same here (love that last shot, BTW). Have you read Deaver's CARTE BLANCHE yet?  It's a pretty cool update of Bond.

Scopedog on Apr 12, 2012


I'm gonna have to check it out.

Xerxexx on Apr 12, 2012


I've said it before and I'll say it again....Daniel Craig contains and exudes absolute none of the grace, wit, humor, severity and charm of the James Bond character. When Desmond Llewelyn died, so did the franchise. Craigs turn as "Bond" are just modern spy movies with the Bond name and characters tacked on and nothing more.

Voice of Reason on Apr 11, 2012


Totally - Michael Fassbender would make the perfect Bond.

Steven on Apr 11, 2012


Well you two can get onto a ship called "Cry me a river" and the rest of us enjoying a new Bond movie. Bye. 

Buzzfunk on Apr 11, 2012


Will Smith has grace, humor, severity, and charm. When does Daniel Craig's contract expire?!?!

Lerryjee on Apr 11, 2012


What the f--- did you just say?  lol

JL on Apr 11, 2012


Drugs are bad for you. Need more prove? 😉

10 was 2011 but it was renewed.....

Jericho on Apr 11, 2012


If you dont like Craig version of James Bond then dont watch it. No body put a gun to ur head, 

Truong18 on Apr 11, 2012


Yep. And he's pretty much like the Bond that's written in Fleming's books.

Scopedog on Apr 12, 2012


 Stop talking out of your arse Voice of Reason. Have you read any of Ian Flemming's books? Craig is a superb bond. Mean and moody. Bring on Skyfall. This will be excellent.

zelx77 on Apr 11, 2012


Exactly. I bet you very few have bothered to actually read them. Bond was never supposed to be as humorous as Roger Moore was  , nor was he supposed to be a 'pretty face' ala Pierce B. While QOS was not amazing, I thought overall Daniel is doing a great job.  BTW Michael Fassbender would not make a good Bond but a great villain. Loved him when he got all mad as Magneto. 🙂

Buzzfunk on Apr 11, 2012


You nailed it--how many of them have actually _read_ Fleming's novels?  I only started reading them after Dalton's two films, but realized that HE "got it", and that Craig has nailed it as well. Fleming himself said it--he saw Bond as "sort of a blunt instrument....who would get into these bizarre and twisted adventures in which he would have to shoot his way out of".

Scopedog on Apr 12, 2012


your grace, wit, humor, severity, and charm never existed until the fifth book *not including the several short stories that required Moneypenny to crack his shell.* the old bond movies are just further examples that the 60s-90s had very few good adaptations of books so your attempted argument is invalid.......

Jericho on Apr 11, 2012


You are totally wrong on this. You are a douche.

HarveyPoopsmith on Apr 11, 2012


Hahah, thats fine, all of you. I'm just one Bond fan chatting Bond to other fans. I just think the world pined for "darker" movies and the studios obliged them with a jacked, intense, pursed-lips and rigid Bond by Craig breaking the mold starting with Casino Royale. I love the books and have read the entire catalog, but the movies are a different as are all movies based on books. And the Craig Bond is different as are all Bonds...and this one Bond does nothing for me or embolden my love for the franchise, the books or the history. Yall cant take my opinion from me. You can try...but you can't.

Voice of Reason on Apr 12, 2012


sure we can, we just need a table, a few bindings and a lazer that will creep up your legs to cut you in half.....

Jericho on Apr 12, 2012


Damn. Guess you're right.

Voice of Reason on Apr 12, 2012


 Looks amazing! How does Judi Dench not age? Still looks the same as she did in GOLDENEYE.

DAVIDPD on Apr 11, 2012


I want to hug her. She seems like such a nice woman.

Xerxexx on Apr 11, 2012


She will take her hug shaken, not stirred. 

Quanah on Apr 12, 2012


 So what you're saying is...I get to shake Judi Dench?

Xerxexx on Apr 12, 2012


It just felt right, but sounds so wrong. I digress. 

Quanah on Apr 12, 2012


This film looks like it's going to be great. I love Daniel Craig as Bond.

MoviePass on Apr 11, 2012


This looks even better then CR. I love the 60s yet modern gritty vibe in those images. Mendez will surely not disappoint.  If your no fan of DC as Bond well then it's pointless to bitch about it. This is his 3rd one and most likely he will do 2 more. Just try to enjoy the movies...

Buzzfunk on Apr 11, 2012


Hey--if the Aston Martin is in it, I'm happy. And I like Craig as Bond.  If others don't like him, fine--just don't watch the films and quit bitching.

Scopedog on Apr 12, 2012


I can't wait!!Craig in my opinion has been the most exciting Bond outside of Roger Moore...

jah p on Apr 11, 2012


please oh please be as good as Casino Royale!! images look great but im anxious to know more about the story.

Richie Blitz on Apr 11, 2012


I am absolutely excited about this. However, I find it sort of amusing that the pictures suggest there will only be one facial expression in the whole film. Never mind. Love the car.

Felix Naumann on Apr 11, 2012


 Daniel Craig has quite a range of facial expressions.  CR proved that.  Those photo's don't though.  Is Naomie Harris still playing Moneypenny as reported earlier?  If so, strange to see her with a gun.

Cinemabandit on Apr 11, 2012


Ugh, Daniel Craig is such a suave motherfucker. That man knows how to wear the shit out of a suit as well as look badass all bloodied up.  Now, excuse me while I breathe into a paper bag.

SuicidalOptimist on Apr 11, 2012


 Agreed, seeing the last pic I had an irrational urge to lick my computer screen.

serke on Apr 16, 2012


Craig does well, but no-one seems to give him credit for it. Does that last photo remind anyone else of the underground scene in Carte Blanche novel?

Merc on Apr 11, 2012


Yeah--I just realized that! CB was pretty damned good, BTW...

Scopedog on Apr 12, 2012


this daniel craig is a sell out bond. yessur, sold the old martini down the river and is now a heineken drinker. why? money.  this stinks. can anyone tell me another reason why?

bassmonsta on Apr 12, 2012


Those images are pretty damn wonderful. My fingers are crossed that the movie is just as cool, with both style and substance. I have no reservations about the acting - I just hope they made sure the script was up to scratch before they started shooting this time and that Sam Mendes knows how to shoot action better than Marc Forster. Because, while Casino Royale kicked my ass, Quantum of Solace sucked it. 🙂

SV7 on Apr 12, 2012


Can't wait!!!

M.K. Nielsen on Apr 12, 2012


It don't get any better than Craig and that "original" BMT 216A - DB5. Well, maybe the two Bond girls but it stops there.

97point6 on Apr 12, 2012


i can't stand daniel craig but i will watch this for my sweet ralph fiennes.
