It's tough to follow Daniel Craig as James Bond opening the 2012 Summer Olympics with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.

Nonetheless, at least the latest international trailer for Sam Mendes' take on Bond, "Skyfall," features badass Javier Bardem. Back in May, Immersed in Movies deciphered the "Skyfall" teaser, and called the film a "hybrid of modernism and classicism," but pointed out that "what's yet to be revealed is the playfulness we've been also promised by Craig and Mendes." That's still missing from this trailer, but at least it's steamy (see shower) and surprising (see Bardem's blond locks). "Skyfall" debuts November 9.
