San Diego’s Reuben H. Fleet Science Center was tonight host to a special “IMAX Remix” Comic-Con press event that, following a montage of 65mm footage with a live soundtrack by DJ Glenn Morrison, previewed for the first time anywhere, a brand-new trailer for the upcoming Skyfall. The footage itself will be revealed at IMAX theaters across the country in the weeks to come, but ComingSoon.net was on hand tonight to catch a few of the new plot reveals.
At the start of the trailer, we learn that M (Dame Judi Dench) was responsible for a drive that contains the names and locations of every British Intelligence Agent stationed across the world. That drive has now gone missing.
Following the character’s first image reveal yesterday, Ben Wishaw’s Q is seen in action. We watch him meeting Daniel Craig’s 007 for the first time where Q tells Bond that, with his expertise, he can accomplish more on his laptop in his pajamas in ten minutes than Bond can in the field in an entire year.
There’s lots of action scenes, including quite a few shots of Bond fighting someone hand-to-hand on the roof of a train car. Later in the trailer, we see the same car being torn apart (while it’s still moving) by a pursuing construction crane.
Of course, there a number of franchise mainstays: we see the classic 007 Walther PPK, the original Aston Martin and we get to hear Craig say, “Bond. James Bond.” along with quick flashes of Naomie Harris’ new Bond girl, Eve.
Coming to theaters and IMAX on November 9, the Sam Mendes-directed action adventure also stars Javier Bardem, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Helen McCrory, Ola Rapace and Tonia Sotiropoulou.
