Adele-Theme 'Skyfall' Trailer, Plus Daniel Craig Visits SNL & Remembers Forgotten Bond Girls

Daniel Craig and pseudo-Bond girl Adele (who sings the theme song) are doing their part in promoting the latest Bond film, Sam Mendes' "Skyfall."

Oscar Watch: Spielberg's 'Lincoln' Faces Marketing Challenges; Fiery New Trailer Targets Political Wonks During Presidential Debate

An intense and patriotic new trailer for Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" (November 9) premiered during the presidential debate.
