First official image from Skyfall arrives

The first official image from the new James Bond adventure, Skyfall , has been released online.

It shows Daniel Craig looking grizzled, moody and on a mission. We like.

Even though he's had a four year break from the role since appearing in Quantum Of Solace , the actor's looking as badass as ever, with a grainy smattering of stubble that suggests he hasn't had time for his usual grooming ritual.

And despite the fact that the 50th anniversary of the Dr No is inspiring all kinds of birthday celebrations for Bond, the new image suggest Skyfall is taking 007 in a pleasingly different direction.

The above image shows Bond in Shanghai, one of the many locations that director Sam Mendes is plonking him in.

Skyfall opens on 26 October 2012.
