Today's Hot Trailer: Adele's Skyfall Theme Added to Latest Trailer; Plus a New Clip
10.08.12 by Ryan
Let's stand tall and face the new Skyfall trailer together.
Last week, singer Adele's theme song for the upcoming 23rd James Bond movie Skyfall was released online, prior to Daniel Craig's appearance on Saturday Night Live and coinciding with the release of the Bond documentary Everything of Nothing: The Untold Story of 007. With Skyfall only a month away, everything is coming up Bond lately and the latest trailer for the movie has taken footage from the movie and added Adele's theme song to it. The result should please Bond and Adele fans alike.
Trailers is where we start
The Skyfall theme fits perfectly in the Bond theme song oeuvre, and is reminiscent of Shirley Bassey's classic theme songs for Bond movies like Goldfinger and Diamonds Are Forever. It's certainly an improvement over the theme for (apologies, Alicia Keys and Jack White).
Whether Skyfall — which sees Bond's loyalty to M (Judi Dench) get tested when her past comes back to haunt her — becomes a classic Bond movie remains to be seen, though the latest preview clip from the movie reveals a very classic "cufflink moment" from the trailer, where Bond leaps onto the back of a train car and then makes sure to do his Saville Row tailor proud.
Directed by Sam Mendes (Jarhead), Skyfall co-stars Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace, Rory Kinnear, and Bérénice Marlohe.
