Even as someone who grew up on bank holiday viewings of the series, it's sometimes hard to get truly enthusiastic about the release of a new Bond movie. We'll always go and see a new 007 adventure, but the longevity of the series, and the relatively formulaic nature of it, means that it's something we've come to take for granted, not least because for every great installment like a "Goldeneye" or a "Casino Royale," there's a "Die Another Day" or "Quantum Of Solace" right behind it to kill the mood.

Can you tell that "Skyfall" is opening (overseas) in about four weeks? We'd reckon that another trailer is likely just around the corner -- probably on or around James Bond Day on October 5th -- but until then, we have some new pics that offer up eye candy for both the dudes and ladies.

When it comes to 007, there is no marketing opportunity too big or too small to get the word out about "Skyfall." And thus, over the weekend during the Emmy Awards, MGM and Sony made sure whoever was tuned in caught a glimpse of the new film as they unveiled a new 30 second spot for the picture. And a few more images have cropped up as well.

Whatever you think of the films so far (the general consensus being that "Casino Royale" is one of the best ever entries of the franchise, and "Quantum of Solace" was something of a disappointing follow-up), few would argue that Daniel Craig has disappointed as the fifth incarnation of James Bond. Beating out the likes of Henry Cavill and Sam Worthington to the role, Craig wasn't an obvious choice, causing certain dim sections of fans to complain in advance that he was 'too blonde' and 'not attractive enough' to play Ian Fleming's creation. But the actor soon banished any doubts by proving appropriately suave and sexy in the part, while retaining the cruelty that had been absence since Connery, and adding a greater psychological realism that's worked beautifully for a modern-era Bond.

With the James Bond series turning 50 this year -- and a host of events being planned for October 5th -- the November release of the Sam Mendes-helmed “Skyfall” will mark the 23rd entry in the franchise. The latest issue of Empire has a wealth of material devoted to the new Bond film, including some new images below.

As we've reported earlier, this fall's 007 romp "Skyfall" will have what can charitably be described as "a whole heaping fuckload" of complex promotional tie-ins, corporate sponsorships, and licensing arrangements. Well, we've now got our first look at one of those tie-ins – with Coke Zero. That's right – Scott Pilgrim and James Bond will soon have the same taste in diet soda. What's more – a new international banner has been unveiled, and Roger Moore proclaims Daniel Craig the best James Bond ever. Does he get a prize? A twelve-pack of Coke Zero maybe?

Yes, Bond is back, and judging by the brand new trailer unveiled last week, it's going to be a mix of the classic elements we've come to adore from the franchise -- gadgets, guns and girls -- along with the gritty realism that has come to define the Daniel Craig era films. And with "Skyfall" set to cap off the 50th anniversary of the Bond business, the promo material for the movie keeps coming, with a few more pics emerging over the weekend.

Yeah, we know, these two movies go together like oil and water. One is an auteur-driven entry in a beloved franchise that has spanned generations, while the other is another indistinguishable addition to a series of films that has managed to beat out most people's expectations for its longevity. But they are both being released by Sony, so there's that.

Now that we're coming to the end of summer blockbuster season, many eyes are turning towards the fall line-up, and while there's the usual selection of prestige fare there, we're not exactly going to be starving for blockbusters. "The Hobbit," "Jack Reacher," "Breaking Dawn Pt. 2" -- all films with the potential to be huge without necessarily troubling Academy voters. But one of the most anticipated of all is "Skyfall," the 23rd official James Bond film, which hits in November.

Review: Danny Boyle's Witty, Subversive & Spectacular Opening Ceremony For London 2012 Olympics Was A Triumph

We're not known for our love of sporting events here at The Playlist, but ever since it was announced that Danny Boyle would be the man in charge of the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics (following in the footsteps of "Hero" director Zhang Yimou, who shepherded the Beijing events), we've been intrigued. After all, Boyle, as a recent Oscar winner for "Slumdog Millionaire," is a serious A-lister now, and could get any film he wanted made. And while he's kept his oar in, shooting thriller "Trance," with James McAvoy, last year (he'll finish post-production on it once the Olympics are done), it did mean giving over a year or so of his life to the event at a time when he's never had more cachet.
