New Skyfall Trailer Brings The Bardem Baddieness

Jeff Vice writes for Bleeding Cool.

"Mommy was very bad" – look who's talking.

We don't know about you, but we've been waiting for Javier Bardem to play another villain role ever since the Spanish-born actor's Oscar-winning turn in the Coen brothers' 2007 adaptation of No Country for Old Men.

And that's what we're apparently getting on October 26th in the UK and November 9th in the US with the release of Skyfall, officially 23rd James Bond movie adventure.

This new international trailer,  show Bardem's bleached-blonde baddie getting the best of a possibly washed-up 007.

As with the other trailers and teasers released to date, this one only tells part of the ongoing story. Bond returns, seemingly from the dead, to deal with a villain who has a serious grudge to bear against Bond's employer, M, and the entire MI-6 organization.

But Bardem and current favorite Bond Craig aren't the only things that have us very intrigued this time out. Sam Mendes, who directed surprisingly weaselly Craig in 2002's Road to Perdition, is behind the camera. He's working from a script that was co-written by Bond regulars Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, as well as The Aviator, Gladiator and Hugo scribe John Logan.

This might be the best Bond cast in years, too. Veterans Ralph Fiennes and Albert Finney play bureaucrats, Ben Whishaw is the new Q, and this film's Bond girls are Naomie Harris of 28 Days Later and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and arresting newcomer Berenice Marlohe.

Oh, and the 24th and 25th Bond movies have already been greenlit, on this film's strengths. If this trailer is any indication of its quality, they'll have a tough act to follow.
