Skyfall Gets a Teaser Poster

Well, there it is: the Skyfall teaser poster. It’s dark and mysterious and black and white, with Daniel Craig’s Bond perilously heading toward us through the iconic gun barrel. It’s a clever bridge between the past and present, which is fitting for the 50th anniversary of Dr. No this year. I’m also reminded of The Third Man as well. Director Sam Mendes talks about Bond being “regenerated” like Doctor Who and occupying his own space in Empire’s 50th anniversary issue, while Craig discusses Bond being pushed to emotional and physical extremes. This is all graphically conveyed in the poster.

Meanwhile, the teaser trailer arrives tomorrow online, which I will discuss in my next post.
