‘Skyfall’ Character Posters & Banner: James Bond’s New Friends & Foes

3 years ago by  

There is still much we don’t know about the plot of Skyfall, James Bond’s upcoming 23rd adventure on the big screen. Directed by American Beauty filmmaker Sam Mendes, with Daniel Craig returning for his third outing as 007, the trailers for Skyfall have been nothing short of epic (especially when glimpsed in IMAX), and have positioned this film to be one of the biggest blockbusters of Fall 2012.

That all said: there is still much to learn about who and/or what is involved in the plot of Skyfall, and today we get a better look at some of the principal characters in the film, including 007 himself alongside some new faces to the franchise that may be friend, foe… or in some cases, a little of both.

Skyfall centers around a story in which Bond’s boss, “M,” (Judi Dench) loses possession of a vital piece of MI6 intel: a file containing the identities of the agency’s undercover agents (cue the inevitable Mission: Impossible comparisons). Bond – who is believed to be dead after some clever maneuvering by M and sharpshooter agent, Eve (Naomie Harris) – is called in to recover the missing info, which somehow (details are unclear) puts him on a collision course with the creepy-faced “Silva” (Javier Bardem), a ruthless assassin sporting a major grudge against “M” and MI6 – not to mention, some classic Bond villain blond hair.

Check out Bond, Silva, Eve, and femme-fatale new Bond girl Sévérine (Bérénice Marlohe), in the Skyfall character posters below:

As stated, Skyfall looks like it could be one of – if not the - best James Bond movies that we’ve ever seen. Mendes’ photography of London, Shanghai and other locales has been stunning in just the small bit of footage we’ve seen; the action sequences look equally up to par; the (forgive the term) swagger of James Bond seems back in step with the tradition of the character; the script – by John Logan (Gladiator), Patrick Marber (Closer) and Casino Royale writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade – seems full of twists and intrigue, and the IMAX (as I said) is pretty stunning.

Plenty to look forward to when Skyfall comes to theaters on November 9, 2012.

  1. Bardem looks weird in Blond!

    • Yeah, but it’s that weirdness that makes him a true Bond villain :)
      I think it’s just right, not too over-the-top but looks outlandish enough to make him stand out.

      • Agreed, @Nick.

    • Bond villains should all look a little weird, some have metal hands, Silva has unsettling hair.

    • It kind of looks like a wacky homage to the Zorn character played by Christopher Walken in “A View to a Kill”.

  2. movie looks fantastic

  3. “When MI:6 is ashes, you have my permission to die.”

  4. Dying to know what the story behind Silva is. He looks a little goofy but nowhere near as goofy as in No Country For Old Men, and that role turned out to be terrifying.

  5. so the black chick isn’t moneypenny? Wasn’t that the rumour a few months ago? glad to hear shes not, Moneypenny needs to be white in order for the chemistry between her and bond to work best

    • she has to be white in order fo the chemistry to be right? Why is that?
      I just want to know.

    • @DCfan1

      Nope, guess the “black chick” (or Naomie Harris as SOME people might call her…) is not Money Penny, so don’t worry, you’ll most likely only HAVE to see the “black chick” once, wipe the sweat off your brow…

      • @DCfan1: Yeah, where’d that come from??

        Hopefully that was just a bad joke, cuz Bond’s spigot ain’t no bigot. How’s that for bad jokes?

    • Dude???

    • I think that’s racist.

      And who’s to say she isn’t Moneypenny either? They’ve only released that her first name is Eve.

    • @dcfan1

      Clearly you don’t know anything about World History if you think chemistry b/t powerful white men and ‘Black chicks’ doesn’t work best. In fact, focus groups full of the white men demographic will tell you (anonymously) that it works THE best. It apparently even works when ‘we’ would rather it not (slavery, hardcore porn…).

      Broaden urself dude

      –a Black chic

  6. Wow, that trailer was epic…

  7. Sweet looks great

  8. That pig poster is horrible. Took two minutes to make on photoshop. Was that really the best they come up with? It’s Bond, it should be exciting!
    Someone said to me it was simple.

    It isn’t. It’s lazy. Dull. Uninspiring.

    • Pig poster…?

      • I meant big, the banner, but somehow “pig” is still appropriate.

  9. yes, i love it. craig looks damn good as bond,he has nailed the character i.m.o., bardems blond hair is great and looks creepy(a true bond villain), naomie harris is so beautiful(please people like -dc fan- have there opinions,but stop beeing racist, can we forget the colour,we are all human and that shouldn´t be a thema in our century),in the trailer she acts like a spy and not a secretary, the bondgirl looks also hot and classic-beauty. one word :AWESOME BANNER

  10. ehhm – channel-, what to hell has the silent-movie -metropolis- to do with bond flicks(or you mean another movie called -metrop.-, but i don´t know another movie with the same title-. heeeeeeeehhhhhhhh : )
