All other studios bow out when it comes to releases this weekend, because they KNOW, much like Jaws, Dr. No and Odd Job do, that's it useless going up against Bond, James Bond. This is Daniel Craig's third foray as 007, Bond's 23rd film and the buzz surrounding his performance and the production in general has been huge.

This time out, Bond's loyalty to M (Dame Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her in the form of a spiteful villain played brilliantly by Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men). As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

Of course, the Bond girls are hotter than ever; Naomie Harris and French hottie Bérénice Marlohe. If you're a fan of Bond's succulent victims check out this awesome info-graphic. It's star-studded cast also features Ralph Fiennes and Albert Finney. Q, Bond's tech-savvy gadget guru is smugly played by relative newcomer Ben Wishaw (The Hour).

 

Now palm that PPK and watch your back as you view the trailers and a couple of spectacular clips from SKYFALL.
