Bond is back. Of course, Bond has been been back 21 times since "Dr. No" kicked cinema's longest-running continuous franchise off fifty years ago, but the financial difficulties of MGM seemed to be one of Ian Fleming's superspies most deadly foes. Fortunately, Bond survived, as he always done, and his latest entry, "Skyfall," is the most anticipated we can remember, thanks to a script from "Hugo" writer John Logan, Oscar-winner Sam Mendes in the director's chair, and a cast that includes Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Albert Finney backing up Daniel Craig as the movies' secret agent.

Bond is back. Of course, Bond has been been back 21 times since "Dr. No" kicked cinema's longest-running continuous franchise off fifty years ago, but the financial difficulties of MGM seemed to be one of Ian Fleming's superspies most deadly foes. Fortunately, Bond survived, as he always done, and his latest entry, "Skyfall," is the most anticipated we can remember, thanks to a script from "Hugo" writer John Logan, Oscar-winner Sam Mendes in the director's chair, and a cast that includes Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Albert Finney backing up Daniel Craig as the movies' secret agent.

We're still about six months away from the movie, but ahead of the first teaser trailer arriving with "Men In Black 3" next week, the first poster for the movie debuted over at Yahoo. And.. well, it's not exactly wildly exciting, but it does show the extent to which Mendes & co are emphasizing the film being a return to the classic roots of the franchise, with Craig walking purposefully down the famed gun barrel from the credits. But then what were you expecting? Exploding spaceships?

"Skyfall" goes on release internationally on October 26th, before following on in the U.S. on November 9th. [Yahoo]
