Teaser poster for 007's Skyfall is revealed!

May. 17, 2012by: Paul Shirey

The first teaser poster for James Bond's 23rd venture to the bigscreen in SKYFALL has been revealed today.  Harsh black and white, traditional gun barrel background, and Daniel Craig as the famed agent 007 walking toward you with a pistol.  It's all things Bond, for sure.

Check it out:

Pretty nice, but I dare say that it isn't anything really new or spectacular other than the fact that it IS James Bond, which I suppose is enough to get excited about.  The marketing for these films always seem to fall in a niche, which I guess you could see as either a good or bad thing.  Personally, I'd like to see a little more ingenuity, rather than something as "safe" as this.  It all seems a little interchangeable. 

Still, it's motherf*ckin' Bond and that much is bad ass.

Here's the synopsis again, to remind you of what's in store:

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.

SKYFALL opens on November 9, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: I'm really excited to hear Thomas Newman's score for the film. I'm a huge fan of his work and Bond is so NOT his forte, which makes it even more interesting that he's doing it. However, his music for the old school Tom Hanks movie The Man With One Red Shoe is VERY James Bond-ish. Could be really great.

I like it, but...

I don't like the superimposed walkway. Didn't need it.

Simple and classy...

Using an iconic image, great way to also mark 50 years of Bond films.

Simplicity at its finest...

Love the combination of the gun barrel and black and white. Mixing the old with the new.

I just pre-ordered a Blu-Ray boxed set of all 22 Bond films on amazon for $199. Great deal. Hopefully it ships prior to Skyfall's release. I haven't missed a Bond film in theaters since Goldeneye.

What a terrible poster. There's nothing realistic about it. Is he going to be walking down the barrel of a gun in a movie? WTF! Why isnt the poster showing whats going to really happen in the movie.

This sarcasm is for all the idiots bitching about the lack of realism in the Spiderman movie posters.

I'm looking forward to the movie, but I still agree with you. If feels uninspired. It could be the poster for any Bond flick.

Love It!

I've been waiting for something from Skyfall to pop up. Isn't the trailer supposed to debut before a major blockbuster this summer?

Looks better than all these other posters we're getting, I'm looking at you Spider-Man. And I sense some symbolism happening with Bond heading down the barrel of a gun, or maybe I'm reading too much into it.

Awesome classy poster

I just hope they don't jam us full of hype before it's release. After The Avengers and now Prometheus I'm feeling seriously constipated.

It's just a teaser poster

And I consider myself teased.
C'mon guys, let's be honest, it's not a shit poster. It's a simple idea, it could be used for any Bond film, but it's classy, iconic and well put together. It's not a shoddy photoshop job, or a crappy character cut out over a shitty background. I'm sure there will be better, more specific posters in regards to the story down the line, but for now it's an iconic character, well lit, well shot, with an iconic background, on a TEASER poster, essentially telling us

I'm glad its ONLY a teaser because even though Bond walking through the iconic gun-barrel is kinda badass artistically, its also a little corny because its like a looney tune character painting a tunnel on a wall and walking through it.

But hey, its pumping up people for IMAX right?
