New “Skyfall” trailer kills Bond, takes names.

Well, it’s one way to wrong-foot the audience…

OMG – SPOILERZ!

There’s a new “Skyfall” trailer, everyone – go lookit!

Not really – the bait-and-switch gambit of apparently sending James Bond to sleep with the fish community in the new trailer for “Skyfall” is quickly undone when it becomes clear that Bond’s mission this time around is to sleep with French starlets and destroy foreign locales recover an in-the-wild secret hard drive containing the details of every MI6 agent before it goes to the highest bidder.

New Bond girl, Berenice Marlohe, not long for this world if the on-screen fate of previous Bond girls is any indicator…

Where the previous teaser trailers, IMAX pimping and Olympic-piggybacking tv spots have played up the psychological drama aspect of the new, Sam Mendes directed Bond as if to indicate that this won’t be a glum shoot-em-up like the previous, unloved (but actually not that bad) “Quantum of Solace“, this trailer gets down to business by including some pretty major action and one classic prop with a biometric twist.

A tech guy who’s wearing a nerdy parka? The invention of these film makers! Where do they get their crazy ideas?!

New Q, Ben Whishaw shows up and we get our best look yet at the horror which is big bad Javier Bardem‘s blonde hairstyle.  I’m assuming that the sketchiness therein indicates that it forms some kind of secret weapon, perhaps for employment during the grand finale (perhaps it assumes some kind of sentient life and goes in for the kill when his owner is dispatched?).

The reassuring sight of James Bond effing up a vehicle and still finding time to sort his cuffs out. And all’s well with England anew…

“Skyfall” opens in the UK in October and the US in November.
