Sweet new banner and character posters for 007's Skyfall features all the main players ready for action

Aug. 9, 2012by: Paul Shirey

A pretty sweet banner for James Bond's latest outing, SKYFALL, has popped up online, featuring all the main players from the pic (minus Ralph Fiennes and Judi Dench).  Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Javier Bardem, and Bérénice Marlohe stand tall and dressed to kill in the banner, which is primed and ready for your desktop background and/or Facebook timeline. 

Here's the banner (click to enlarge):

Here's the character posters:

It seems that most everyone is pretty stoked for SKYFALL, which looks like another solid entry into the 50-year-old franchise.  Craig has defined himself as one of the most formidable Bond's with a rough charm and physical prowess unmatched by any of his predecessors.  Everyone had their strengths in the role and I think Craig's is his intensity.  Bardem is a great choice for a villain and I have no doubt his Silva will deliver the evil, although I'm wondering if the actor is going to fall into Nicolas Cage territory with the extravagant hairstyles...

Directed by Sam Mendes (AMERICAN BEAUTY, JARHEAD) with a script by John Logan (GLADIATOR), Patrick Marber (CLOSER), and Neal Purvis (CASINO ROYALE), SKYFALL has a superb amount of talent behind it, which usually makes for a great film.

Bond is back in SKYFALL opening November 9, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: The score for Skyfall will be by longtime Mendes collaborator Thomas Newman, usually known for his sweeping and intimate scores for such films as The Shawshank Redemption, The Horse Whisperer, Wall-E, The Help, etc. He's one of my all-time favorite composers and I can't wait to hear what he does with Bond.

I'm not against Bardem.

But his look here (and specifically in the trailer) is utterly awful. He looks like a vampire. Or Draco Malfoy all grown up.

Perhaps he's Max Zorin's son from A View to a Kill

I had to give thumbs up for the Max Zorin reference. While I don't mind his look personally, it does seem to harken back to that. Perhaps there is a stigma for Oscar-winning actors as Bond villains. Maybe not.

Anton Chigurh is back baby. Bardem is such a chameleon in his ability to play all kinds of really different personalities, but I wouldn't be disappointed if he played this one as Chigurh again.

Looks great except Bardem. It'd have been fine in my opinion to use his usual hairstyle and hair color...and still looks like a villain. His current look is ridiculous and a bit cartoony.

Why is Bardem blond?

I like these posters, I think Bardem will be a really good bad guy, but why did they make him a blond? He look absolutely ridiculous with Blond hair. I hope it is revealed to be a part of the story somehow, maybe a loss of pigment or a cover or something.

But on the upside, both the Bond girls look stunning. Yaowza!

I'm really looking forward to this film and this isn't a diss or anything, but the first thing I thought of when I saw Javier Bardem in character was John Malkovich as Pascal Sauvage in Johnny English. Tell me I'm not the only one.
