First Look: Better Photo of Daniel Craig Back as Bond for 'Skyfall'

February 1, 2012

Daniel Craig in Skyfall

He's back! Though it only took three weeks after everyone first complained "where's the gun?!" from the very first look at Craig in Skyfall (Bond 23), we finally have another official first look at Daniel Craig as Agent 007, this time with his pistol. The image was debuted on the website as "Bond is Back" seen in a scene set in Shanghai. This is the kind of imagery I've been waiting to see for this 23rd Bond film, since it's starting to look exactly like what a great Bond movie (photo) should look like. Gun and all! Plus "exotic" locations. Now I'm just wondering when we're going to see our first teaser trailer for this, too. Bring it on!

This brand new Skyfall photo comes from, where you can also view and download it in high res:

Skyfall is being directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Jarhead, Revolutionary Road, Away We Go), from a script by John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Helen McCrory and Ola Rapace will appear in Skyfall, joining previously announced stars Daniel Craig as James Bond 007, Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Marlohe and Ben Whishaw. You can also follow the twitter @007 for updates as well, as they've tweeted out production photos and more info. Columbia Pictures already has Skyfall set to hit theaters on November 9th. We'll continue you to keep you updated on all things Bond, as it looks like 2012 will be a big year for Agent 007.

I know it's just a picture, but it's still awesome. Can't wait for the movie!

Daniel Craig is the shizzle. That cast is wow factor all the way. It's good to know Sam Mendes will have standards in his film, like acting, dialogue, story line,

He looks jaded which seems like an authentic way to portray a dude whose getting poisoned 'n shot at every other minute

Okay, maybe its just me, but I really don't like that they are going back to the old Walther PPK. I mean I am as nostalgic as the next guy, but I really feel Craig's Bond, who is a complete and udder BADASS, should stick with the P99 as it is a better and more up to date weapon. Anyway, picture looks awesome. Let us hope Mr. Mendes does not let us down like some other directors. (I'm lookin at you, Marc Forster!!!)

Well said.

As a hobby handgunner, I can tell you that the Walther PPK is FAR more reliable and concealable than the P99. However, I am disappointed that they went back to .380 ACP, which is a less efficient caliber.

Totally, something like a Browning would have been cool.

Steven on Feb 1, 2012


i have to agree.

Dom on Feb 1, 2012


Or, he's just so bad ass that it doesn't matter what weapon he has, right? Give him a paint gun. I bet he still kills people with it.

Quanah on Feb 1, 2012


Im guessing I'm the minority, but Craig is NOT my Bond.

Voice of Reason on Feb 1, 2012


i have to agree.     

Dom on Feb 1, 2012


He looks so much older from the last Bond.

They made a huge mistake by taking out Quantum. They should have concluded the storyline with this one.

Big Boss on Feb 1, 2012


damn he gettin old! but not in a bad way, he's still awesome as bond

Davidbryan949 on Feb 1, 2012


Alex, do you think maybe sometimes you read a teeny bit too much into promo pictures?

Ross on Feb 2, 2012


In the original stories Bond is in his late 40's no? Daniel's look is true to that, just as Connery did in his last Bond film when they got him back after Roger.

Dont u mean george lazenby

Aye, cheers for keeping me right 🙂

Just saw the movie..Don't bother. No Cars, Bond Girls to speak of, no Gadgets, a plot that is, at times, laughable; and Craig, even after he "Cleaned up"..looks so much..older. I don't know if he is into drink, drugs, etc..but he looked to be a man in his 50's, where in "Solace", he looked like a man in his mid-late 30's..Bottom line. Save you're money, terrible movie..and I'm a fan!
