James Bond returns in full trailer for Skyfall: watch now

Skyfall teased us with a short preview for this trailer , but the full thing’s online now, and it’s mightily impressive.

Daniel Craig’s James Bond has been busy of late, escorting the Queen to Danny Boyle’s Olympic opening ceremony and starring in a US TV spot .

While the Skyfall teaser got underneath Bond’s skin in a indecipherable interrogation scene, the full-length trailer goes all-out with the action, including a closer look at the train-top set piece shown off at Comic-Con .

We also get to see Naomie Harris’ field agent Eve wielding a sizeable automatic weapon, and there’s our first substantial glimpse at Bardem’s blond-mulleted villain, Silva. He even gets some dialogue.

Thrown in Ben Whishaw's Q giving Bond his first gadget, Bérénice Marlohe’s Sévérine getting involved in some shower-set seduction, and a taste of the plot (Bond makes the most of being presumed dead), and Skyfall is shaping up to be one of the most exciting prospects of the second half of 2012.

And Craig's assertion that 007 would be funnier this time around holds true, with the suave superspy adjusting his cufflinks after almost being destroyed by a digger, and finding time for a wink before firing off his signature handgun.

Watch the full Skyfall trailer below:


And to coincide with the unveiling of the trailer, two new images have been released, featuring Bond in a familiar, patriotic pose, and a brand new first official look at Bardem's villain.

Check them out below:

Skyfall opens in the UK on 26 October 2012.
