Skyfall trailer unveiled

May 21st, 2012

The first trailer for the 23rd James Bond movie 'Skyfall' has been unveiled.

The one minute 24 second clip shows British spy James - played by Daniel Craig for the third time - being interrogated by agents, before scenes showing him shooting a gun and a number of coffins with the Union Jack flag draped on them.

There are also scenes from an exploded house and M - portrayed by Dame Judi Dench - also appears briefly.

M is set to be the focus of the movie, which will tell the tale of her past coming back to haunt her.

Among the unusual storylines expected in the Sam Mendes-directed film is one where James Bond is knighted by Queen Elizabeth, who may even make a cameo in the picture.

A source said: ''Daniel Craig was here in black tie one morning in early April. Dame Judi Dench was also here, and the talk of the Palace was that Bond was going to be knighted that morning.''

It has previously been claimed Bond arrives at the palace in London after a request from the queen, who then asks him to open the Olympic Games.

He is then taken by helicopter from Buckingham Palace to the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, East London.
