Sony reveals plot for James Bond’s Skyfall

Daniel Craig as James Bond in Skyfall

Sony has unveiled the first bit of plot detail concerning the 23rd James Bond film, Skyfall, released just in time for the film’s golden jubilee. It might be brief, but this is the first word we’ve had on the plot for the new 007 adventure, which has been tactically stingy with the details until now.

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.  In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her.  As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

Even with that, we don’t know too much, but it it is interested to see that this will be an M-focused adventure, giving the mighty Dame Judi Dench a chance to do a bit more than sit behind a desk.

The 23rd James Bond adventure will be produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, and directed by Sam Mendes, Skyfall stars Daniel Craig as James Bond 007, Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Marlohe, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace and Ben Whishaw.

Skyfall will be released in the US on 9 November 2012 and in Australia on 22 November 2012 from Sony.
