I don’t like Adele for the same reason I don’t take lavender baths, prance around in chiffon, or vote for liberals, but her song for ‘Skyfall’ (which isn’t officially out until tomorrow but got leaked tonight) is actually good. It’s very very James Bond sounding. Or at least the first two minutes are. Those are solid. After that things get a little shaky. It’s like an allegory for what would happen if Adele sat on a poorly made chair.
A new international trailer for ‘Skyfall’ is out today, with lots of new footage and a slightly longer clip from the scene above, which is the most James Bond thing James Bond has ever done. There’s also a Chinese guy at the end who barks at you like he’s some kind of demon, and obviously you wouldn’t want to miss that.
If you want to know more about the plot to ‘Skyfall’, the 23rd James Bond movie, directed by the highly respected Sam Mendes, with Daniel Craig in his third outing as Bond and an outstanding cast led by Javier Bardem, Albert Finney, Judi Dench, and Ralph Fienes, the teaser trailer released today won’t help.
But if you sent some men to go kill James Bond and his companion, and they never came back, the teaser trailer released today will help. It turns out he killed them first. What on earth made you call ahead to tell Bond about it?
