Well, that certainly answers the question of whether he'll be scruffy in some parts of the film....

They keep calling it that, but what about the swimming pool pic? I thought it was the first official one?

Apparently the swimming pool picture was leaked. This shot of Craig is the first official picture released by EON.

In any event, both pictures have an interesting ambiance about them. I have a good feeling about this film.

Interesting that he seems to be back to the PPK (which none of the UK security services have actually used since about 1974!)

He actually used it all through QoS as well. Though your forgiven for not noticing it since the editing of the action sequences can kind of hide the fact that he's using the PPK.



Now this should be taken with an enormous grain of salt, but some poster at IMBD seems to have seen a rough cut of a teaser trailer and posted about it:

The first shot of the trailer, besides the opening logo’s is a really dark shot of a tall office building. I think it was China but I’m not too sure. There was a voice over from Ralph Fiennes (Love that guys voice) talking about the cold war, and it’s repercussions within MI6. This was followed by what I think was a gas attack, people were running and screaming and collapsing. Then the whole friggen set just blew up! Judi Dench appeared. She looked really old and it is revealed that she and Fiennes character are talking. Fiennes says that he’s lost too many agents in the attack (Which I assumed was before), and he needs someone to overlook the case, and find it’s source. M mentions that she has an agent in mind, or something to that degree, but he’s resigned, and they’re unable to track him down. Fiennes says that he has to be found and brought back to duty. The whole conversation with Fiennes and Dench was really heated, and it sounded as if he was blaming her, which brings me to the next part where he mentions that he’s seriously doubting whether she’s fit for duty anymore. That she’s losing her touch. There’s a few dramatic shots afterwards, of a Bond walking through a very colourful building. It looked like a nightclub, very cool. He was wearing a black jacket and gloves. Like the end of Quantum of Solace. We don’t actually see Bond until he gets in a fist fight with what looked like a Sniper. Daniel Craig looks awesome! Very cold eyes, brutal. There was one shot where everyone gasped, because it felt so real and brutal. Bond is overpowered and captured, and the next shot has Bond walking into what I assumed was his apartment. M’s standing there, and she apologises for the force she used to bring him to her. Bond says that he’s pretty much finished with the service. He’s seen loads of disturbing things and he doesn’t want to relive them. He then talks about the attacks, and M says something about her life being in danger, and Bond is the only person she trusts. She then goes on to tell him that the government is starting to collapse, and its being invaded by enemy agents. We see a few shots of Helen McRorys character, walking down a crowded street. Bond mentions that out of respect for her, and for queen and country he’ll return to duty.

Now this is where it gets good. Massive Bond theme. A new variation, and not the one that was used in the GoldenEye and BloodStone trailers etc. Sounded really exciting. It followed the same lines as the Casino Royale theatrical trailer melody wise, but it was obviously a different mix.

Couldn’t really get all of the shots because they were so fast (although brilliantly shot) but the ones I remember are Bond overpowering a guy driving a jeep, and nearly crashing the car. Tanner and Bond running down a London street with guns, in the rain. Protecting M. A train being derailed, and the carriage slowly missing Bond. Javier Bardem running through a busy street, Bond jumping over a wall. Lovely shot of Bond getting off a plane, reminded me a lot of Casino Royale. Car chase, a shot of Bond getting thrown against a dirty bathroom mirror, Bond head butting someone. Naomi Harris’shooting in the back of a jeep, in what looked like a desert, A car exploding. Bond on a motorbike, firing a machine gun. Bond jumping off a roof, and landing screaming on the floor. We have a break from the music here, and have Bond and Harris on a rooftop, Bond tells her that he’s totally lost faith, he didn’t say what in, just that he has no faith. This is followed by shots of a horse and carriage and loads of coffins. It goes back to Harris who tells Bond that he needs to continue to fight, for the good of the country. Bond mentions that he always is fighting, even though he has nothing worth living for. The music builds and we enter the climax of the trailer. Loads of shots, but I cant remember them all. Seem to remember Bond on a Jet Ski, Berinice Merhole walking down villa steps, Bond removing glasses, performing a 360 turn in the DB5. M getting thrown around in the DB5, Bond pressing a button in his car and… this leads into the big money shot, blowing up an obstacle and driving through it.. BUT the car kinda goes out of control, and it starts to overturn in mid air. Then the title and release date came up. Had a CGI shot of Bond walking in the rain, in slow motion, in an open necked tuxedo holding a silenced gun.

Hmm...seems rather reminiscent of the scene in Casino Royale (the book), when Bond, in the hospital, confides to Mathis on how he can no longer see his job through the lens of "we're good, they're bad". (Note: in the book, it is Bond, not Mathis, who remarks that "the heroes and villains--they get all mixed up.")

Mathis's advice is, "Surround yourself with people--they are easier to fight for than principles. Only...don't become human yourself. We would lose such a wonderful machine."


He was wearing a black jacket and gloves. Like the end of Quantum of Solace.
Hmm--kinda gives new meaning to the ending of QoS: "I need you back." "I never left...."

Well, if they are using it, I'm sure that's classified

Does it seem odd to anyone else that it is the "rebooted" Bond's third movie in and, if the report is true, he's considering quitting? Especially since they went to such lengths in the previous two movies to establish him as being "new" and/or becoming the Bond we know.

From the purported trailer description, it appears that when the movie begins, Bond is no longer an agent of MI6. It seems like M is trying to entice Bond to come back, at least based on my interpretation of that description. That might explain Bond's beard and the appearance of the Walther PPK.

Which makes it even more perplexing.

Perhaps I'm just reading too much into it. Hell, this description might all be false or misconstrued.

Hmm, there seems an awful lot in that teaser trailer considering they haven't been filming for that long...

There does indeed seem a bit too much in that for the amount they've actually filmed.

Yes, I thought exactly the same. It's a little reminiscent of The Dark Knight Rises and how it is rumoured to jump ahead 8 years from TDK, with rumours of Batman having retired in the interim - a mere two movies after he Began!

I have some doubts about the veracity of the 'trailer description' (though kudos to whoever spotted and posted it). As has been said, seems to have a lot of footage for amovie that hasn't been filming all that long. Like the supposed script for Man of Steel which recently appeared online, it does sound like something that could be put together by someone who had been keeping abreast of rumours about the movie's storyline and characters.
