ComingSoon.net has a recap from the screening of the first trailer for Skyfall, which Sony unveiled at CinemaCon. The latest James Bond film stars Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace and Tonia Sotiropoulou and opens November 9th:
It begins with an interrogation scene, possibly a psych evaluation of Bond as someone is doing a word association game with the agent. At first we hear it as narration over a couple of establishing shots of London, starting with "Country" to which Bond responds "England." "Gun" is next, with the response being "Shot," followed by "agent" and "provocateur," and "murder" to which Bond replies "employment." By then, we're into the interrogation room and there are three people behind the glass looking on with Dame Judi Dench's M and Ralph Fiennes' Mallory being the most prominent, though we're not sure who the third person was. (In hindsight, either that third person or the interrogator may have been Albert Finney's character, but we're not sure.) When the interrogator says "Skyfall," Bond doesn't respond so he says "Skyfall" again and Bond says "Done" and gets up to leave.
From there, we got a lot of quick shots of a lot of different images, many of Bond running or falling, either into water or from some height. We see him on a barge in front of the Macao casino with the giant dragons in the background, which we saw on set a few weeks back, and he's running through cars in London, presumably part of his chase after Silva. We also saw the briefest shot of the subway car crash that ends that chase.
There was absolutely no sign of Javier Bardem's character anywhere in the teaser, unless he went by too fast for us to notice and probably only one shot each of Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe (and we're not 100% of the second one).
It ends with Bond saying "Some men are coming to kill us. We've got to kill them first."
