Bond is back later this year, in Skyfall, the 23rd 007 film that almost never was. There’ve been only a few teases so far, a quick trailer here or there, a photo escaping into the wilderness every once in a while.

Well, MI6 has slacked off once more, as these new images paint a clearer picture of one of the movie action scenes, while also heralding the return of one Bond signature vehicle, in a new vlog.

Daniel Craig is back as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

Bond on a bike? Sounds like a recipe for a seperate film to me, starring Samuel L Jackson getting even angrier than usual. As for the vlog itself, if you don’t have time to watch it, and happen to be wondering why a Bond vehicle with less horses and gizmos under the hood features, then here’s one great quote from director Sam Mendes:

There’s something about the last part of the movie which deliberately, very consciously, could have taken place in 1962.

With Javier Bardem on board as a mentl and physical threat, while 00 agents find themselves in all manner of new danger and espionage, this movie is starting to shape up like one of my favourite early Bond films, From Russia with love, so far.

And that ain’t a bad thing at all.
