First real image of Craig as 007 in Skyfall released

February 2nd, 2012 by Marc Comments

Well here it is… the first look at Bond in the upcoming Skyfall, the 23rd official Bond movie.

Gun raised, suit pressed, face like a leather saddle bag? Is it just us or does Craig look a bit, well, old in this?

Anyway, nomatter how old he looks here, it’s not enough to dampen our spirits, we really think Sam Mendes has the steel to make this a better outing than the abysmal Quantum of Solace and nomatter how many times we leave a Bond movie disappointed – yes World Is Not Enough and Tomorrow Never Dies we’re looking at you! – we still get giddy at the prospect of the next one. Bit like Doctor Who, really…

The image is from the movie’s official website and was released today. The pic was taken during the Shanghai shoot.

Skyfall is out this November and according to the official synopsis Bond will this time be protecting MI6 itself and will have his relationship with M tested.

Sign us up and pour us a vodka Martini, shaken not stirred…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
