Intense violent sequences throughout, some sexuality, language and smoking

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.
Skyfall (2012) | Preview
Quantum of Solace was a fine action movie, one that was obviously influenced by that other super-spy Jason Bourne. However, it didn't feel much like a Bond action movie. That was the one thing that kept me from really enjoying it; it lacked the flair, the charisma, the charm—the Bond-ness—needed for a great James Bond movie. Well, if the latest trailer for Skyfall is any indication, that's not a mistake that will be made twice. In this trailer we hear Bond state his name as only he can (namely, "Bond, James Bond," which for some reason was left entirely out of QoS), we get to meet the new Q (very Bond), Bond picks up his signature Walther PPK (about time), and we see plenty of action that looks like it has far more of the Bond touch (such as Bond adjusting his very chic suit during a massive train sequence). All in all, it just looks very Bond, which is exactly what the franchise needed to do after the Bourne misfire of Quantum of Solace. Take a look and let us know what you think.
