James Bond in Skyfall

I guess it's honestly no surprise that our first photo and first look at Daniel Craig back as James Bond in Sam Mendes' Skyfall, the 23rd Bond film, features him in a speedo and nothing else. That's pretty much how they started with Casino Royale, too. So here we are once again, and here's Bond in skimpy shorts, no shirt, sitting poolside. Empire has debuted "Skyfall gold", the first photo of Craig as Bond "during filming of Skyfall at the London Four Seasons." It's not much, but because we're Bond fanatics here and will be following the Bond 50 year ahead, I couldn't help but share this. If not for all the ladies more than anything.

Here's the first photo (since that USA Today preview was actually from Casino Royale) of Bond in Skyfall:

Daniel Craig in Skyfall

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.

So this has to do with the franchise in what way?

I was thinking the same thing... "at the London Four Seasons" um what? It's like, was he just there for a swim or something?

this pic is there to show us that bond is that good looking and every girl wants to do him and every guy wants to be him.

The quintessential characteristics behind Bond! 🙂

Alex Billington on Jan 13, 2012


no, i believe this is the scene where M calls back Bond who has temporarily retired from duty after the events of quantum. He is actually taking time off to relax when tanner and M bust in. if you have seen some set scenes, you will see bond,tanner, and M in a range rover. M will brief Bond in the car and after this scene Bond is introduced to Q who has modified his aston martin AND also meets the supposedly new govn agents Fiennes character and Eve.

I would have liked to see something more to do with the story or at least Bond in a suit. But knowing that there is actually some progress being made makes me happy.

Bond goes swimming?

Couldnt there at least have been a gun with a silencer lying next to him or something?

Yea, actually, damnit you're right! Where is his gun?!

Alex Billington on Jan 13, 2012


that is gay

Not really...its mostly for the ladies and gay men...for fellow hetrosexual males and lesbians is simply a pic.

Xerxexx on Jan 13, 2012


I much rather have them not release anything if they only have pointless pictures like these...

Buzzfunk on Jan 13, 2012


Crap! Should hide this post from the GF. She is on my case, as it is to hit the gym after seeing Daniel Craig in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo! And he is showing butt-crack et al....damn you!

I like it. Not that I have a problem with the usual, Bond in a suit with a gun, but seeing something different is a welcome change. At least where I'm concerned...

Anonymous on Jan 13, 2012


I think, its a welcome change from all the usual suit pics, of which we will get tons in the future. Thanks EON 🙂

The Four Seasons in London is doubling a Shanghi location in the film.  I find a picture like this far more interesting than a dime a dozen 'bond pointing a gun at the camera'.  This gives you a far better idea of the style and tone the film will have.

Omegas are waterproof, right?

It's not a Speedo.
